The Importance Of Namaz, Prayer (Salaat)

The Importance Of Namaz, Prayer (Salaat)

The Importance Of Namaz, Prayer (Salaat)  

The importance of establishing Prayer has been mentioned in the Holy Qur'an and Hadith, on several occasions:-  

The Importance Of Namaz, Prayer (Salaat)
  • Allah the Supreme states in the Holy Qur’ an: “ And keep the Prayer established, and pay the charity, and bow your heads with those who bow (in Prayer).” (Surah Baqarah) 
  • On another occasion, it is stated: “ Guard all your Prayers, and the middle Prayer; and stand with reverence before Allah.” (Surah Baqarah)  
  • On yet another occasion, it is stated: “ And keep the Prayer established at the two ends of the day and in some parts of the night.” (Surah Hud)  
The "two ends of the day" mean the morning and evening. The time before noon is classified as morning and the time after it is classified as evening. The Morning Prayer is the Dawn (Fajr) Prayer, and the Prayers of the evening are the Afternoon (Zohr) and the Evening (Asr) Prayers. The Prayers for the night are the Sunset (Maghrib) and the Night (Isha) Prayers. (Tafseer Khazain ul Irfan)  

The Holy Qur'an classifies Prayer as an act that is opposite to the habits of polytheists. It states, “ Inclining towards Him - and fear Him, and keep the Prayer established, and never be of the polytheists.” (Surah Ruum)  

In other words, not offering the Prayer is to be like the polytheists. This is further confirmed by the words of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) "The entity that lies between a bondman and disbelief, is the abandonment of Prayer." (Saheeh Muslim)  

The Holy Qur'an warns those who abandon Prayer, in the following words: “ And after them came the unworthy successors who squandered Prayer and pursued their own desires, so they will soon encounter the forest of Gai in hell.” (Surah Maryam)  

“ Gai” is a well in the lowest part of hell, in which accumulates the pus of its inhabitants. It is also mentioned that “ Gai” is the hottest and deepest part of hell. This is the well which Allah opens up whenever the heat of hell lessens, causing the fire of hell to rage again. This well is the destination of those who abandon Prayer – and adulterers, drunkards, usurers and those who hurt their parents.  

The Holy Qur'an has mentioned a trait of the hypocrites, that they are lazy in offering Prayers, and that they deem it to be a burden. It therefore states: “ Undoubtedly the hypocrites, in their fancy, seek to deceive Allah whereas He will extinguish them while making them oblivious; and when they stand up for Prayer, they do it unwillingly and for others to see, and they do not remember Allah except a little.” (Surah Nisaa)  

The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) has said the following about the hypocrites: “ The most burdensome Prayers for the hypocrites are the Night Prayer and the Dawn Prayer. If they were to know the blessings they have in store, they would have come to them, even slithering.” (Saheeh Bukhari and Saheeh Muslim)  

The Holy Qur'an also explains that offering the Prayer is not at all a burden for those who believe in Allah and the Last Day. It says: “ And seek help in patience and Prayer; and truly it is hard except for those who prostrate before Me with sincerity - Who know that they have to meet their Lord, and that it is to Him they are to return.” (Surah Baqarah)  

We therefore know from the Holy Qur'an, and from the Hadith, that it is obligatory on all Muslims to offer Prayers 5 times daily. To be lazy in Prayer, and especially not to offer the Night and Dawn Prayers, are the traits of hypocrites. We also know that not offering Prayer is the way of the disbelievers - this is why the Sahabah (the Companions of the Holy Prophet) did not deem the abandonment of any deed as disbelief, except the abandonment of Prayer.  

The importance of Prayer can be gauged from the fact that it has been emphasised right from childhood. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) has said: “ Command your children to pray when they become seven years old, and beat them for it (Prayer) when they become ten years old; and arrange their beds (to sleep) separately.

What Is Salaat, Namaz (Prayer)?

What Is Salaat, Namaz (Prayer)?

What Is Salaat, Namaz (Prayer)?

The Prayer is:  
  • The coolness of the eyes of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him)  
  • A pillar of religion  
  • The key to paradise  
  • The spiritual ascent of the faithful believer.  
  • The greater Jihad (holy war)  
  • A sign of faith  
  • Light of the heart  
  • The radiance of the face  
  • The nourishment of the soul.  
The Prayer is:  
  • A cause of blessings in the house  
  • A cause of abundance in provision  
  • Cure for ailments of the body and soul  
  • A light in the gloom of the grave  
  • A canopy in the hot sun on the Day of Resurrection 
The Prayer is:  
  • An entertainer of the heart amidst the fear of the grave  
  • A swift carrier across the thin bridge on the Day of Resurrection  
  • A means of attaining forgiveness from sins  
  • A barrier between hell and the offerer of Prayers  
  • A repeller of the devil  
  • A bestower of Allah's proximity and His favour.  

After proper acceptance of faith and its inherent beliefs, i.e. the recitation of the Pure Words (Kalemah Tayyebah), the most important duty is that of offering the Prayer.  


The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) has stated: "The first duty that Allah, the Supreme, has ordained upon my nation is that of offering Prayer, and indeed Prayer is the first thing that will be taken account of on the Day of Resurrection."  

It is also reported in the Hadith that, "Whoever keeps the Prayer established, has kept his religion established - and whoever leaves Prayer has demolished religion".  

It is reported by Syedna Abu Hurairah (may Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “ Allah the Supreme states, 'O the son of Adam! Free yourself for My worship, I shall fill your heart with content - and if you do not do so, I shall make you busy in several affairs but not remove your poverty.' " (Mishkaat ul Masabeeh, Ibn Majah)  

"Be content with five things before (the advent of) the other five: Youth before old age, good health before sickness, prosperity before poverty, spare time before indulgence in affairs, and life before death." (Hadith reported in Tirmizi)  

Regrettably, the Muslims of this age have forgotten Prayer. Most people simply do not have the time for it, whereas some people do offer their Prayers but do not know the proper way of offering it. It is imperative to learn the correct way of offering the Prayer, and to offer all the 5 Obligatory Prayers with the congregation.  

This concise book attempts to highlight the importance, excellence, mode and rules of Prayer from the Holy Qur'an, Hadith, books of Hanafi Jurisprudence, Fatawa Razvia and Bahaare Shariat. May Allah grant all Muslims the guidance to seek religious knowledge and to act upon it - Aameen (and through the supplications of the Holy Prophet - peace and blessings be upon him).

Message by Sag e Mufti e Azam

SAYYIDI TAAJUSH SHARIAH SHOWS HIS KARAAMAT AS HE LEAVES THIS WORLD

Last night I was at the airport in Delhi and was returning  home after having spent time in the khidmat of Huzoor Taajush Shariah Alaihir Rahma, two days before. I had checked in my bags, received my boarding passes, and was standing in the immigration que with just few people ahead of me, when I got a call from Brother Shahbaz who was weeping and saying that Hazrat has taken very ill. I immediately left the immigration que and requested the airline staff to bring back my luggage and release me from the airport. They mentioned that my bags had already been loaded but they would attempt to assist. Just then I called Salman Miya, the son in law of Huzoor Asjad Raza, who answered his phone weeping and informing me that my Master had journeyed into the hereafter. 

The airlines staff after an hour brought out our bags after clearance and escorted us out of the airport. We immediately sat in Khalid Bhais car and left for Bareilly Shareef. 

This is the Karaamat of my Shaykh e Kaamil that even as I was about to exit the country He brought me back to Bareilly Shareef to make His Final Deedar. Even as he was leaving the Duniya in Bareilly Shareef, He was blessing this servant,  and bringing me back to His Sacred Feet. 

I arrived in Bareilly Shareef to observe massive crowds which are starting to swell. Since last night Aashiqaan e Taajush Shariah Alaihir Rahma are following lines to make the final Deedar of their Shaykh e Kaamil, through a window, so that as many people as possible may be blessed with Huzoor's Deeedar.

Huzoor is resting in a transparent case. He is resting covered with roses, as if He is in a deep sleep and will soon awaken. 

This Faqeer, my son Mohammed Abul Barkaat, Haji Abbas (Holland) and Khalid Bhai (Delhi) were blessed with entering the private chamber wherein Hazrat is resting so that we may make  Ziyaarat of our Master, and I was blessed to place my hands under the case and touch my Masters Sacred Feet probably for the last time in my life. 

We could not hold back our tears as we made Ziyaarat of the most beautiful face in this era. This was truly the Karam of Huzoor upon us that we were given this privilege. I passed Salaams before Huzoor collectively of all those who have sent me messages asking me to do so. 

When Huzoor Sayyidi  Asjad Raza heard that I had come, within minutes  He came into the Darul Ifta to meet this faqeer. It was a very emotional meeting as we embraced one another. He mentioned that He saw my name appear on Salmaan Miya's phone when I called from the airport and he said to him,b2ç¹ yy6cp answer and inform Maulana that Hazrat has passed on, making this faqeer one of the first people outside Bareilly Shareef to have received this news that shook my heart. 

Huzoor Asjad Raza Qibla then explained that, Huzoor Sayyidi had done Wudu for Maghrib Salaah amd his breathing became rapid. He was made to lay down, and as the Azaan had commenced, Hazrat said, Ya Allah! Ya Allah! Ya Allah! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!, and with these words the soul of our Shaykh left the physical body to ascend towards  the heavens. 

The Janaazah Salaah of Murshidi Sarkaar Taajush Shariah Alaihir Rahma, will be held at the Islamia Inter College Grounds where the Janaazah Salaah  of Huzoor Mufti e Azam Hind Radi Allahu Anhu was Held. 

The Janaazah Salaah of Huzoor  Taajush Shariah Alaihir Rahma will take place on Sunday 22 July at 10am Indian Time. Hazrat will be laid to rest on the ground floor of the Azhari Guest House which is adjacent to the Mazaar of Huzoor Sayyidi Aala Hazrat Radi Allahu Anhu and all the Masha'ikh.

Namaz Mein “Tashahhud” Mein Ungli kab utana chahiye

Namaz Mein “Tashahhud” Mein Ungli kab utana chahiye

Question: When to raise finger in Salat during Tashahhud? Namaz Mein “Tashahhud” Mein Ungli kab utana chahiye?

Answer: Namaz mein Tashahhud (Qaidah) mein ” اشہد ان لا اله الا اللہ” pe shahadat ki ungli se isharah karna Sunnat hai. 


Jab Attahiyyaat padthe hain, Ash'had'u'un La ilaha par pauche, tho angute ke saat akhri 3 ungliyon ko gol karle aur Shahdat ki ungli se ishara karte hue utana chahiye aur illala La par gira de.


In Tashahud, when you are reaching La'ilaha make a circle in your right hand by joining the thumb with the middle finger and curl the small and it's adjacent finger with the middle finger and on the word La lift your index finger but don't move side to side and when you reach 'illallahu' straighten your hand back to normal.
