SALAAT (NAMAZ) IS THE PILLAR OF ISLAM AND HAS GOT TEN VIRTUES

Hadharat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallaho anho) narrates that he heard the Prophet (SAW) saying: There is no place in ISLAM for a person who does not offer his SALAAT and there is no SALAAT without WUDHU.

The position of SALAAT in ISLAM is a position of head in a body.

The position of salaat in jamaat is twenty-seven times more and in some hadith it is mentioned twenty-five times more, why is the difference?

* This variation is due to variation of ikhlaas (sincerity) in different individuals
* In Sirri (quiet ) salaat i.e. zohr and asr it is twenty-five times, while in Jahri(loud) salaat i.e fazr,magrib and Ishaaa it is twenty-seven times.
* In fazr and ishaa, when it is somewhat inconvenient to go out in cold and darkness, it is twenty –seven times.
* In the beginning it was twenty-five times but subsequently ALLAH favour on the followers has it been raised to twenty-seven times.

Muhammad bin Samaak (Rahmatullah alaiho) is a famous theologian and sheikh. He died at 103. He used to perform two hundred rakaats of nafil salaat daily. He writes : For forty years he never missed the first takbeer of salaat with jammat ,except once when my mother died .Once I missed the salaat with jammat .As I knew that the salaat was twenty-seven times superior, I repeated this salaat individually for twenty-seven times to make up the loss.

The Prophet (SAW) said:

SALAAT IS THE PILLAR OF ISLAM AND HAS GOT TEN VIRTUES:

1. It is the charm on the face
2. A light in the heart
3. health and refreshment for the body
4. a company in the grave
5. a key in the heaven
6. a means of willingly ALLAH pleasure
7. it establishes deen and the one who neglets demolishes it
8. a price of paradise
9. descent of ALLAH's mercy
10. A weight of scale of good deeds.

The angels address a person who misses

ASR NAMAAZ AS O U TRANSGRESSOR
MAGRIB NAMAAZ AS O U KAAFIR
ISHAA NAMAAZ AS O U VOILATOR OF ALLAHS COMMANDMENTS.
