Insight of quran


أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّٰهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ ٱللَّٰهِ

“Salah,” also known as “Salat” or “Namaz,” is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and holds significant importance in the lives of Muslims. It is the Islamic form of prayer and is a means of establishing a direct connection with Allah (God). The practice of Salah is obligatory for all adult Muslims who are physically and mentally capable.

Importance of Salah on time

Salah is obligatory on every Muslim to pray five times a day on time. Importance of praying Salah on time can be understood by these hadith:

“Abdullah asked the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) “Which deed is the dearest to Allah?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” (Sahihal-Bukhari 527).

As Narrated by Ibn Umar, Allah’s Messenger said: “The beginning of the time for Salah is pleasing to Allah, and the end of its time is pardoned by Allah.” (Jami at-Tirmidhi 172), so don’t you want to begin the prayer on time and at earliest to please your Almighty, without which you cannot attain the place in Jannah.


Muslims are required to perform five daily prayers at specific times throughout the day and night. These prayers are Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha. The times for these prayers are determined based on the position of the sun.


Before starting the Salah, Muslims perform a ritual purification known as “Wudu” (ablution). Wudu involves washing the hands, face, mouth, nose, arms, head, and feet. It symbolizes physical and spiritual cleanliness before standing in front of Allah

Direction of Prayer:

During Salah, Muslims face the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. This direction is known as the “Qibla,” and it represents the unity of the Muslim community worldwide.

Hadiths that emphasize the importance of Salah (prayer).

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “If there was a river at the door of anyone of you and he took a bath in it five times a day, would you notice any dirt on him?” They said, “Not a trace of dirt would be left.” The Prophet (ﷺ) added, “That is the example of the five prayers with which Allah blots out (annuls) evil deeds.”

Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari 528

Abu Hurairah (RA) reported: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Should I not direct you to something by which Allah obliterates the sins and elevates (your) ranks.” They said: “Yes, O Messenger of Allah”. He said, “Performing Wudu’ properly, even in difficulty, frequently going to the mosque, and waiting eagerly for the next Salat (prayer) after a Salat is over; indeed, that is Ar- Ribat”. [Muslim].



Jundub bin Sufyan (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “He who offers the dawn (Fajr) prayers will come under the Protection of Allah. O son of Adam! Beware, lest Allah should call you to account in any respect from (for withdrawing) His Protection.” [Muslim].


Jarir bin ‘Abdullah Al-Bajali (RA) reported: We were sitting with the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) when he looked at the full moon and observed, “You will see your Rubb in the Hereafter as you see this moon having no difficulty in seeing it. So try your best to perform the prayers before the rising of the sun and that before its setting.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. Here the prophet linked seeing Allah in the Hereafter by praying Al-Fajr and Al-Asr in their time without delay.


Abu Hurairah (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “There are angels who take turns in visiting you by night and by day, and they all assemble at the dawn (Fajr) and the afternoon (‘Asr) prayers. Those who have spent the night with you, ascend to heaven and their Rubb, Who knows better about them, asks: ‘In what condition did you leave My slaves?’ They reply: ‘We left them while they were performing Salat and we went to them while they were performing Salat.”‘ [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Abu Zuhair ‘Umarah Ruwaibah (RA) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying: “He who performs Salat (prayers) before the rising of the sun and before its setting, will not enter the Hell.” [Muslim].


Narrated Abu Bakr bin Abi Musa: My father said,   Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Whoever prays the two cool prayers (`Asr and Fajr) will go to Paradise.’
