Surah: Qaf, Aya: 40 4. O you who believe (Muslims)! When the call is proclaimed for the Salât (prayer) on the day of Friday (Jumu'ah prayer), come to the remembrance of Allâh [Jumu'ah religious talk (Khutbah) and Salât (prayer)] and leave off business (and every other thing), that is better for you if you did but know! Surah: Al-Jumu’ah, Aya : 9 5. Recite (O Muhammad SAW) what has been revealed to you of the Book (the Qur'ân), and perform As-Salât (IqamâtasSalât).

Surah: Al-Isra, Aya : 78 • So be patient (O Muhammad SAWS).

Surah: Al-Ghafir, Aya : 55 • And perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât), at the two ends of the day and in some hours of the night [i.e. the five compulsory Salât (prayers)].

Seek help in patience and As-Salât (the prayer). Truly! Allâh is with As-Sâbirin (the patient ones, etc.). Surah: Baqara, Aya : 153 10. So when you have finished (from your occupation), then stand up for Allâh's worship (i.e. stand up for prayer). Surah: Al-Inshirah (Ash-Sharh), Aya : 7

You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted be You above all, that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire. Surah: Al-Imran, Aya: 191 12. Wealth and children are the adornment of the life of this world.

He knows that you are unable to pray the whole night, so He has turned to you (in mercy). So, recite the Qur'ân as much as may be easy for you. He knows that there will be some among you sick, others traveling through the land, seeking of Allâh's Bounty; yet others fighting in Allâh's Cause. So recite as much of the Qur'ân as may be easy (for you), and perform As-Salât (Iqâmat-as-Salât) and give Zakât, and lend to Allâh a goodly loan, and whatever good you send before you for yourselves, (i.e. Nawâfil non-obligatory acts of worship: prayers, charity, fasting, Hajj and 'Umrah, etc.), you will certainly find it with Allâh, better and greater in reward. And seek Forgiveness of Allâh. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful. Surah: Muzzzamil, Aya : 20 14. So bear patiently (O Muhammad SAWS) what they say, and glorify the praises of your Lord before the rising of the sun, and before its setting, and during some of the hours of the night, and at the sides of the day (an indication for the five compulsory congregational prayers), that you may become pleased with the reward which Allâh shall give you. Surah: Ta-Ha, Aya : 130
