byShaikh Ahmed Deedat
In the name of Allah (God), The Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful. All praisebelongs to Allah, the Lord (Who is the Creator, Sustainer and Guide) of all the worlds.The Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful; Sovereign of the Day of Judgement.Thee (alone) do we worship, And from thee (alone) we seek help.Show us the straight Path, The Path of those (who fear Allah) and on whom Thou hastbestowed Thy blessings.Not of those (committing wrongs deliberately) On whom Thou art angry, nor of thosewho (Having wrong opinions) go astray. Ameen
We present to you this Brochure which is a Comparative Study of Muslims Prayer. It isintended to show in it, among other things, the relationship of the various aspects of Islamic prayer with the teachings of the People of the Book (i.e. the Jews and theChristians). Today, amongst some of our non-Muslims Brethren there is a strongmisconception of Islam which they believe to be a mystical cult abounding in dogmas,superstitions and ritual dances.The fact is that Islam is a simple, reasonable and practical religion and free frompriestcraft and the above charges. It is a way of life for the social, moral and spiritualdevelopment of humanity. It does not demand of a man to surrender his reasoningfaculties nor does it demand a blind faith in obscure and inexplicable mysteries. Itteaches the purest form of Monotheism and regards Polytheisms as an unpardonablesin.Although Islam is regarded as the youngest of all revealed religions, it is NOT A NEWRELIGION, but a continuation of the first religion of God to Man, purged and purified,time after time, from all human adulterations and restored to its original purity.Thus all prophets from Adam to Muhummed (PEACE BE UPON THEM) came to preachthe same religion; which continued to grow and grow until it reached perfection at thehands of the Holy Prophet "Muhummed".Islam is the only religion in the world that commands its followers to respect and reverethe founders of all revealed religions, such as Abraham, Moses, Noah, Jesus,etc.Muhummed´s advent has been prophesied in religious scriptures, includung the Bible.*The New Testament says, in the words of Jesus: "And I will Pray the Father, and Heshall give you another Comforter,** that he may abide with you for ever" (John 14:16);"But when the Comforter is come, whom i will send unto you, from the Father, even theSpirit of Truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me" (John 15:26);"Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away; for the if I go notaway , the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you"(John 16:7) ; "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth : for he shallnot speak of himself: but whatsoever he shall hear, that he shall speak: and he will shewyou things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show itunto you" (John 16:12-14).
It is not befitting to the (Majesty of) God that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him!When he determines a matter, he only says to it, "Be" and it is, (HOLY QURAN 19:35).Begetting a son is a physical act and is against God´s nature. "Son of God" should NOTbe taken in literal sence because God addresses His chosen servants as his "sons" -Adam (Luke 3:38) So Solomon (1 Chronicles 28:6), Jesus (Luke 3:22) Israel (Exodus
4:22) and Ephraim (Jeremiah 31:9) were "GOD´S FIRST BORNS". The new Testamentalso interprets "son of God" to be allegorical, vide Romans 8:14: "For as many as areled by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." "... In this the children of God aremanifest, and the children of the Devil.." (1 John 3:9-10).
"There is no other object of worship but God; Muhummed is the Messenger of God." 
"Say: He is Allah (God), the One and Only; Allah the eternally Besought of all; Hebegetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none comparable unto Him." (HOLYQURAN 112.1-4)."..To whom then will ye liken God? Or what likeness will ye compare unto Him?"-(ISAIAH 40:18)."Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence Satan, for it is written, thou shalt worshipthe Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve. "-(MATTHEW 4:10).Five times a day, every day, a muezzin climbs to the minaret and calls the faithful toprayer, his voice ringing clear over the rooftops and across the streets... "O you whobelive! When the call is made for prayer...hasten to the remembrance of Allah."-(HOLYQURAN 62:9)."And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, make thee two trumpets of silver...that thoumayest use them for the calling of the assembly...And when they shall blow whit them,all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of thecongregation."-(NUMBERS 10:1-3).
