“Salah is the secret key to Life”

Salah is always talked about, and categorised as extremely important. Lets evaluate a few quick points in why?

How was Salah revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)? Salah is the only act of Ibadah which was revealed directly, without any messenger in between. In the night of Isra-wal-Mi’raj Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was ascended to Allah. Why? Because it is so special and it is the one which is most beloved in the sight of Allah.

Also Allah says; “Guard strictly your (habit of) prayers, especially the Middle Prayer; and stand before Allah in a devout (frame of mind).”
(al-Baqarah: 238)

The first question which will be asked on the Day of Judgment will be about Salah. If it is good, everything else will be good, and if it is bad, then everything else will be bad too. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The first thing that the servant will be called to account for on the Day of Judgment will be Salah. If it is good, his deeds will have been good. If it is bad, his deeds will have been bad.” (At-Tabarani)

SubhanAllah…

Today.. As soon as you step onto your prayer mat, and raise your hands to say “Allahu Akbar”, do so with conviction. Imagine there is nothing around you and it’s just you and Allah, imagine you are leaving this world and your soul is taken to Allah, and now you will begin your intimate conversation and nothing else in this realm matters…submit to Him and pour your heart out. It is ultimately the best feeling ever. Beyond words can express.

Spread the knowledge so it will be Sadaqah Jariyah(ongoing charity) for you and for me… In’ shaa Allah.

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action.” [Muslim 1893].
