Ritual Prayer: Its Meaning and Manner


By: Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani


Prayer is one of the central elements of Islamic practice and worship. Indeed, it is the second of the Five Pillars of Islam and, along with the testimony of faith, the pilgrimage to Mecca, fasting the month of Ramadan and paying the poor tax, forms the essential framework of religious life for Muslims. More than that, the observance of the ritual prayer forms the framework of each Muslim’s day, from the pre-dawn morning prayer to the night prayer that precedes sleep. Read the rest of this entry

Words that are more beloved to our Prophet than all that the sun rises upon


The Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “When I say ‘Subhan Allah, wa’l-hamdu Lillah, wa la ilah ill-Allah, wa Allahu akbar (Glory be to Allah, praise be to Allah, there is no god except Allah, and Allah is Most Great)’, this is more beloved to me than all that the sun rises upon.” [Muslim]

Shaykh Saleh al-Maghamsi mentions some points regarding the words: “subhanAllah, wal-hamdulillah, wa la ilah ill Allah, wa Allahu akbar. ” He (may Allah preserve him) says:

– If you say these words they bring you closer to Allah.
– They are the most beloved of words to Allah.
– Nothing will harm you if you start saying these words.
– Increasing in the remembrance of Allah is from the praised types of worship.

In the Quran Allah says in surah al Kahf verse forty six
الْمَالُ وَالْبَنُونَ زِينَةُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَالْبَاقِيَاتُ الصَّالِحَاتُ خَيْرٌ عِندَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابًا وَخَيْرٌ أَمَلًا
“Wealth and children are [but] adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for [one’s] hope.”

What are the deeds that remain and are enduring? In the commentary of ‘al baqiyaat al salihaat (the deeds which remain)’ it says that this is the speech ” subhanAllah, wal-hamdulillah, wa la ilah ill Allah, wa Allahu akbar. “.

The Qur’an is calling me and you to read it!

وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ

And we have certainly made the Qur’an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? Surah Qamar, Ayah 17
