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.

info-pictogram1 Dajjal is a person whom the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) described as appearing at the end of time. He is sent by Allah as a trial to people. Dajjal will claim godhood and Allah will allow supernatural acts to occur at his hands, such as bringing back to life those he kills, causing the sky to rain by his command, and the earth to produce vegetation by his command. He will have with him what resembles Paradise and Hell. The one he claims is Paradise is in reality Hell, and the one he claims is Hell is in reality Paradise. He will also have two rivers flowing with him. All of these things will be made to happen for him by the Power and Will of Allah. Whoever follows him will disbelieve and be misfortunate and remorseful. Whoever disbelieves him is the true Believer whom Allah has granted success to be of the felicitous. May Allah make us of those who are granted the success of felicity.
