DIVINE LINK – FIQH OF SALAH

...and perform the prayer for My Remembrance. [20: 14]

You enter the masjid for Isha’ prayer – you missed the first rak’ah and the imam is already in tasleem. So the prayer ends and you stand up for another ra’kah, and then another, and then another...

(hey, wait a minute, how many rak’ahs do I have again?)

You’re praying with a friend and you notice them doing something funny with their index finger...

(stop that man, that’s not how to do it! You gotta move it like this!)
Sound familiar?

In fact, it sounds a bit too familiar, doesn’t it?

It is the tragedy of our times. In our homes and our masajid, coast to coast, distinguishing neither west nor east - we find ourselves praying, but not praying. Calmness of heart has replaced itself with a state of constant confusion. The very act so beloved to hearts of the righteous souls of the past, has become a 5 minute exercise of quickly uttered words and motions.

And what of the beauty we have left behind? The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam described the power of salah with beautiful analogy:

Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him narrates: I heard the Messenger of Allah saying:
“Tell me; if a stream flows by the house of a person and he baths in it five times a day, will any dirt will remain on his body?" The companions replied: “No dirt will remain on him".

The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “that is the likeness of the 5 prayers, Allah forgives sins by them...” [Bukharee]

A building cannot stand without a proper foundation. Likewise, our belief in Allah is not complete without manifesting itself in action and this action is the prayer. As Allah Himself describes, it is the Servants of the Most Merciful who:

“spend the night before their Lord, prostrate and standing”[ 25: 64 ].
