info-pictogram1 Throughout the history of the world, the majority of people have believed in God. There seems to be something built in the human mind that makes us want to believe.

Over the last decade some really startling facts have been found that show that children have an innate belief in God. Dr Justin Barrett, a senior researcher at the University of Oxford Centre for Anthropology and Mind, states:

“The preponderance of scientific evidence for the past 10 years or so has shown that a lot more seems to be built into the natural development of children’s minds than we once thought, including a predisposition to see the natural world as designed and purposeful and that some kind of intelligent being is behind that purpose…’

He adds that “If we threw a handful [of children] on an island and they raised themselves…they would believe in God’.. To put it simply, his answer as to why anyone would believe in God is that, our minds are designed to do so . Disbelief in God is something which is unnatural to the human being. Oxford University development psychologist Dr Olivera Petrovich, who is an expert in the Psychology of Religion states that, belief in God develops naturally and that ‘atheism is definitely an acquired position’.

“Those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity — they will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

— Surah al-Baqarah (Holy Quran, 2:277)

Consistent and daily prayer practice constitutes one of the Five Pillars of Islam, holding a place of such importance and benefit that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) stated that it is the observance of daily prayers that delineates belief from disbelief.

And it is one of the great gifts of Islam that Allah Almighty has enjoined prayers upon believers, in effect providing a means to fortify and continually reinforce faith and belief, and to continually remember, for indeed, “faith without works is dead.”

By actively and consciously engaging one’s daily prayers, one can benefit greatly from this unique spiritual practice. Islamic prayer, or salah, provides the following three key benefits.

THE MEANING OF THE FIVE DAILY PRAYERS

A very beautiful and inspirational explanation.

Our 5 daily prayers are a way to curb over-attachment to anything material. The five daily prayers regulate our lives with their specific timings to teach us that indeed Allah is Greater than anything else that we might be occupied at that moment. The dawn prayer teaches us that the most beloved thing to us; comfort and sleep, should not control us- so we rise up in the cold mornings, wash ourselves and pray in an acknowledgement that Allah is Greater than our love for comfort and sleep. The midday and afternoon prayer teaches us that no matter how engrossed we are with work or the short lunch hour that we so highly value; it’s not the purpose of our existence. So we leave it for a few minutes and stand and pray testifying indeed Allah is Greater. On Friday, we dedicate if not most, all our lunch hour to attend the Friday sermon and prayer. The dusk prayer, that time when we are finally home and about to spend time with our family, eat dinner or simply relax- we get up and pray together to confirm that Allah is Greater than any of that. Finally the night prayer, Isha’- when we are tired after a long day of work and responsibilities ready to fall into bed and sleep, we pray again to prove that submitting to Allah is Greater than falling to our warm beds. All these serve as constant reminders to us that as much as we love life, we live for a higher purpose. Conversely, if we are having a terrible day, these spiritual checkpoints save us from a fatalistic outlook and serve to remind us that there’s always something more and our problems are not the permanent.

ALLAHU AKBAR..

Please share to inspire others and spread the message that our Allah is Greater. JazaakAllah Kair.
