Prayers
  • Prayers are the first component of Furoo-e-din
  • Pillar of our Religion

وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ تَنْهَى عَنِ الْفَحْشَاء وَالْمُنكَرِ وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ

“And keep up prayers; surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil. And the remembrance of Allah is the greatest.” (29:45)

Prayer
  • However, any act performed without true knowledge & understanding is a useless act
  • To truly benefit from prayer, we need to work on improving our concentration in Salaat and channeling all thoughts to Allah (swt)

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ الْمُؤْمِنُون {1}

الَّذِينَ هُمْ فِي صَلَاتِهِمْ خَاشِعُونَ {2}

“Surely, the believers are successful; those who are humble in prayers.” (23:1-2)

Imam Al-Baqir (a.s) has said:

“The prayer that is offered by a person, sometimes half of it ascends upwards, while at other times it is only one-third, or one-fourth or one-fifth that ascends. Only that portion of the prayer which the person has offered with concentration and mindfulness of the heart is made to ascend.”

3. Understanding Recitations
  • Adds meaning into the prayer
  • Goes beyond being a repeated ritual but rather an action with unprecedented value
  • Prevents mind from wondering

“One who offers 2 units of prayer with the knowledge of what he says therein, he does not finish them without Allah forgiving him every sin that there is between him and Allah, that He does not forgive.”

Imam Jafar As-Sadiq (a.s)
