Pray Like The Prophet ﷺ
The Prayer: is the second pillar from the pillars of Islam and the most important pillar of Islam after the Shahaadah (testimony) of Faith. The prayer is a link between the servant and his Lord. The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Indeed, when one of you prays, he speaks privately with his Lord.” [Reported by Al-Bukhaari] And Allaah says in the Qudsee Hadeeth: “I have divided the prayer between Myself and My servant into two parts, and My servant will have what he asks for.
The Prayer: is a garden of ‘ibaadaat (acts of worship), in which every splendid type of worship is found. There is the takbeer, by which the prayer is initiated, the standing in which the person praying recites the words of Allaah, the bowing in which he extols his Lord, the rising from the bowing position, which is filled with the praising of Allaah, the prostration in which he glorifies Allaah by His highness and in which he implores him through supplication, the sitting in which there is the tashahhud and (more) supplication and the closing with tasleem.
The Prayer: is a means of support and assistance in times of distress and grief. And it prevents one from evil and shameful deeds. Allaah says: “Seek assistance in patience and prayer.” And He says: “Recite what has been revealed to you from the Book and establish the prayer. Verily, the prayer prevents one from evil and shameful deeds.”
The Prayer: is the light of the believers in their hearts and in their place of gathering (on the Day of Judgement). The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) said: “The prayer is light.” And he (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) said: “Whoever guards it (his prayers), it will be a light, a proof and a (means of) salvation for him on the Day of Judgement.” [Reported by Ahmad, Ibn Hibbaan and At-Tabaraanee]
The Prayer: is the joy and delight of the believers’ souls. The Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) said: “My delight was placed in the prayer.” [Reported by Ahmad and An-Nasaa’ee]
