Importance of Salaat :-

Post by neurosonic on Wed May 13, 2009 8:18 pm

Importance of Salaat (Namaaz)


In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind.

Imam Bukhari Rahmatullahi Alayhi narrates in his 'Sahih-Al-Bukhari' under the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar Rahmatullahi Alayhi, that he once heard the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam (PBUH) saying:

"Islam is founded on five pillars: Bearing witness that there is no worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammed (PBUH) is his servant and messenger, the establishment of Salaah, Paying Zakat, Performing Haj and Fasting in the Month of Ramadan".

The Prophet (PBUH) has compared Islam to a canopy resting on five supporters. The kalimah is the central support and the other four pillars of Islam are so to say, the remaining four supporters, one at each corner of the canopy. Without the central support, the canopy cannot possibly stand, and if anyone of the corner support is missing, a collapse will result in the defective corner.

Salaah for every individual Muslim is compulsory; whoever misses Salaah intentionally did kufr. To discard Salaat is to be linked with kufr and shirk and discard of Salaat is the only partition between 'Imaan & Kufr'.

Previously, we have conceived the importance of Namaaz. Now lets move on to 'neglecting Namaaz'.

Hazrat Nawfil bin Muawigah narrates that he heard the Prophet (PBUH) saying:

"A person who has missed one Salaat is like the one who has lost all his family and wealth".

In another Hadith, the Prophet (PBUH) said:

"A person neglecting his Salaat (even though he makes it up later) shall remain in Hell for a period of one Huqb."


A 'Huqb' is equal to eight years of Three Hundred and Sixty days each, and one day in the hereafter shall equal to One Thousand years of this world.


There are numerous hadiths, which can be mentioned of neglecting Salaah.

A few quotations are mentioned below:

"Salaat was the first and foremost thing ordered by Allah, and it shall be the first and foremost thing to be reckoned for on the Day of Judgment".

Salaat is the pillar of Islam,

Salaat abases the Devil,

Salaat is the light of a Muslim,

Salaat is the best 'Jihad',

Moreover, Salaah is the key to Paradise.

Salaat ensues daily bread, promotes health, drives out diseases, strengthen the heart, brings light and beauty on the face, pleases the soul, refreshes the body, cures indolence, relives the mind, feeds the soul, illumines the heart and guarantees Allah's fear, it grants protection from Allah's doom, it keeps the devil away and brings us near to Allah.

In short, Salaah is a guarantee for all that is described, and a protection against all that is undesirable for both body and soul, equally in this world and the hereafter.

Salah the key to success


Once in the time of the great scholar imam Abu Hanifa a person hid his wealth into the midst of a forest. After a certain time of period of his life due to a necessity he went looking for his wealth but he could not find it. He could not find the wealth due to the fact that it had been a along time since he could not recover the place where he had hid it. Therefore, the needy man went to Imam Abu Hanifa and the Imam Saheb said, “Sorry but I can't help you I am a jurist not a fortune teller but the man insisted for some help. Imam Abu Hanifa agreed and told the person to pray salah for the whole night. Therefore, the man went back to his house and started pray his salah and as soon as he started to pray his salah, the place of the wealth came to his mind. Because he was interested about his wealth, he broke his salah and went towards the wealth. The following day he went to Imam Saheb and told him what happened last night. After hearing the story, Imam Saheb replied, “I knew that Satan would not let you pray salah all night” and told him that he should have finished the salah.
