Secrets Of Salah

Assalam u ‘alaikum,
Bismillah.

Salah (prayer) is the most important thing about being a Muslim. The few ahadith (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alaihi wassalam) at the end of the post prove that.

In this section, a series of posts have been shared called ‘Secrets of Salah’ by Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya.

InshaAllah this series will help in making your salah better and will improve your relationship with Allah SWT and thus will improve your life. :)

Ahadith:

On the authority of Hadrat Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that Allah’s Messenger (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) said: The first of his actions for which a servant of Allah (The Glorified and the Exalted) will be held accountable on the Day of Resurrection will be his prayers. If they are in order, then he will have prospered and succeeded; and if they are wanting, then he will have failed and lost. If there is something defective in his obligatory prayers, the Lord (The Glorified and the Exalted) will say: See if My servant has any optional prayers with which may be completed that which was defective in his obligatory prayers. Then the rest of his actions will be judged in like fashion. (Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, an-Nasai, Ibn Majah and Ahmad). (Hadith Qudsi)

Narrated ‘Imran bin Husain (may Allah be pleased with him): I had piles, so I asked the Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) about the prayer. He said, “Pray while standing and if you can’t, pray while sitting and if you cannot do even that, then pray lying on your side.” (Bukhari)

Hadrat Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) said, “Let anyone tell me; if a stream flows by the house of any person and he baths in it five times a day, whether any dirt will remain on his body.” The companions replied that no dirt would remain in such a case. He said, “So is the case with prescribed prayers. Allah forgives men’s sins (minor) on their account.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

Hadrat Abdullah Ibn Masud (may Allah be pleased with him) said that he enquired of the Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) what was the best deed in the sight of Allah. The Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) replied, “To say prescribed prayers at stated hours.” I asked what was the next best. He said, “To be good to parents.” I again asked what deed ranked next. He said, “To do Jihad in the way of Allah.” Ibn Masud (may Allah be pleased with him) says that if he had gone on asking, the Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) would have told him more. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Hadrat Abdullah bin Amr (may Allah be pleased with him) said that one day the Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) was talking about prescribed prayers and he said, “Whoso is regular in his prayers it will illumine his face, testify to the firmness of his faith and be the cause of his salvation on the Day of Judgement. And whoso neglects the prayers will neither acquire any glow nor staunchness of faith nor any means of salvation and he will join, on the Day of Resurrection, the company of Korah (Qarun), Pharoah, Haman and Ubay bin Khalaf.” (Ahmad, Darimy, Baihaqi)

Wassalam. :)
