My Prayer: Salaat (Prayer) is one of the main obligations which Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has ordained on His servants. It is the first act of worship decreed on the Muslim Nation (Ummah) by Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and was ordained on the night of the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) ascension to the seven heavens. It is the second of the five pillars of Islam after the proclamation of the “Shahada” (the words of witness).

Preface

After reading and reviewing this book ‘My Prayer’ I am very delighted by the will of Allah ( جل جلاله) to say that the content of this book is very knowledgeable. This book can educate Muslims and non-Muslims on the topic of Prayer.

This book enables the readers to adapt the main aspects of prayer. The research team of ITEC has done a very good job by the will of Allah ( جل جلاله) by summarising the book ‘My Prayer’ very simply and knowledgeable so that people can attain the Islamic information on prayer very easily. It shows us how to obey our God, Allah ( جل جلاله) in the manners which the Prophet Muhammad ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) has taught us.

After reviewing many other books I have found ‘My Prayer’ to be very outstanding in the way that it combines Islamic knowledge with practical images which are not found in many books, so people who are interested in finding out about prayer along with the practical examples can use the book to gain knowledge. I highly and strongly recommend this book ‘My Prayer’ to all Muslims and non-Muslims on the religion of Islam and how this book can be very beneficial to gain correct knowledge of Prayer.

I recommend this book to be published throughout the world and that it should be translated into many foreign languages and that all mosques and Islamic organisations should be sent a copy of this book so they can spread the true knowledge of Prayer.

I thank the research team of ITEC who has put a lot of time and effort into producing this vital piece of knowledge together in a book, and I make Dua to Allah ( جل جلاله) that He keep the author and the people who are helping in the publication and distribution of this book safe and may He reward those sincere to Him in this world and in the hereafter, Ameen!

The Book Of Prayer: Salaat (Prayer) is one of the main obligations which Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) has ordained on His servants. It is the first act of worship decreed on the Muslim Nation (Ummah) by Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and was ordained on the night of the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) ascension to the seven heavens. It is the second of the five pillars of Islam after the proclamation of the “Shahada” (the words of witness).

We are presenting you a book which is, though, very small in size but is very big in its concept. Salat is the first obligation upon a Muslim after his testification of Allah‘s Oneness and Muhammad‘s (peace be upon him Messengership. Salat is the contentment of the heart of a Muslim and the eminence of a Believer. Salat is much more emphasized in Qur‘an than any other act.

You may have seen many books on Salat but this small book, which has a specific mention in relation with the matters before the Salat, is very useful and effective. The original book is in Arabic and is written by our friend captain Pilot Anas bin Abdul-Hameed Al-Gawz. More than 30,000 copies of this book have reached in the hands of the people, who appreciated it very much. The English translation of this book has been made by Mr. Abdul Karim Shah, former translator of Pakistan Embassy in Riyadh, for which I am thankful to him.

Dar-us-Salam feels great pleasure and honour in publishing the book according to its high traditions and standards. I am specially thankful to Mr. Shakil Ahmed As- Salafi, Hafiz Abdul Matin Rashid, Mr. Azmat Ullah, and Mr. Saeed-ud-Din for the special tasks of composing, proof reading and checking it with the original Arabic book. Now this beautiful and valuable present is in your hands, please read it and pray for us all. Continue reading

Salah: The Programming Towards Righteousness

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/salah-the-programming-towards-righteousness.gif

Dr. Zakir Naik

Did you ever wonder why, at the exact moment when you stand for prayer, you wonder where you left your car keys? or, going into Ruku’, you realize you haven’t trimmed your toenails in a while? Seems silly, but this problem plagues the Ummah. Why? Basically, human beings have way more control over their physical bodies than their minds. It is very possible for us to complete the physical act of prayer perfectly while our minds wander. What, then, is the solution? Dr. Zakir Naik shows how filling one’s mind with the understanding of the Quran as well as memorizing more of the Quran will lead to a better control during prayer. Most Muslims recite the same surahs over and over, and do so in a mechanical fashion. They repeat the ayah without having to think about what they are saying, let alone understanding the meaning. Muslims must learn how to program their minds to be conscious of every word uttered in Salah. After all, Salah is more than merely a form of physical exercise. Continue reading

Performance of Salah

1-Intention (it is a determination in the heart that you are performing a particular Salah; not to be uttered).
2-Face the direction of the Qiblah (Sacred House in Makkah Known as Ka’bah). Raise your hands to the level of the shoulders, or earlobes, and say

ALLAHU AKBAR

3-Place the right hand over the left on the chest. Look at the place of prostration without lowering your head:

4- Recite the Opening Invocation (du’aa) for Salah:

] سبحانَكَ اللهمَ وبِحَمدِكَ تَباركَ اسمُكَ وتَعالَى جَدُّكَ ولا إلَهَ غيرُك [

[Subhanaka Allaahumma wa bihamdika tabaarakas muka wa ta’aalaa jadduka wa laa ilaaha ghairuk.]

O Allaah! I declare You far removed from above all imperfection, and that You deserve all Praise.  Blessed is Your Name. Your Majesty (Glory and Might) is Exalted., and there is no true God Worthy of Worship Except You. Continue reading

The Purity

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/the-purity.jpg

AbdulRahman Bin Abdulkarim Al-Sheha

Praise be to Allah! may Allah’s blessing and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions. Purity (Tahârah) is a beautiful word that is pleasing to the eye, and a quality which everyone wishes to maintain. From an Islamic perspective, purity has a general meaning. Thus it may mean, on one hand, physical cleanliness which is the purity (of the body) from perceptible filth or ritual purification. On the other hand, it may mean spiritual purity which is the purity of the self from vices, sins and abandoning disobediences, and getting used to good deeds and words. This comprehensive meaning of purity is expressed in the words of Prophet Muhammad, (PBUH) (This symbol means “may Allah send His blessing and peace upon him”), as reported by Abu Hurairah, (may Allah be pleased with him):

“What do you think if there was a river at the door of one of you in which he bathes five times a day: Does this leave any dirt on him?’ They answered, ‘Nothing is left.’ The Prophet (PBUH) said, ‘That is like the five prayers with which Allah remove sins.” (Bukhari & Muslim)

Ritual purity is a prerequisite to prayer (Şalât); this comprises either ablution (wudu’) for minor impurity or ceremonial bath (ghusl) for major impurity. If a Muslim purifies himself in accordance with Allah’s commandments and the Prophet’s instructions, his prayer will purify him of sins. Islam is the religion of both outward and inward purity. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) warned those who neglected physical purity which is considered a prerequisite for validity of certain devotions, like prayer, touching or holding the Holy Qur’an, etc. Ibn ‘Abbass reported Allah’s Messenger’s words when he passed by two graves:

“They are being punished for some- thing which seemed trivial to them: this one used not to clean himself of urine; whereas the other was used to tale bearing.” Then he requested a wet branch which he split into two half and put a half on either grave, then said, “With that, punishment will be reduced unless they (the branches) become dry.” (Bukhari & Muslim)

Training his companions to love purity, he used to say the following supplication:

“O Allah! Praise be to You as much as that which fills the heavens and the earth and as much as You will. O Allah! Purify me with snow, hail and  cool water. O Allah! Purify me of sins as a white dress is purified of dirt.” (Ahmad)

The teachings of Islam urge cleanliness. Jâbir narrated that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) once came to them and saw a man with shaggy hair. He said,

“Couldn’t he find something to tidy his hair up?” When he saw another man with dirty clothes, he said, “Couldn’t this man find water to clean his dress?” (Ahmad ,Nasai and Abu Daud) Continue reading
