Lasting Effect of Devoted Salahs

Islam or Duniya - wots it gonna b?



The importance of the prayers lies in the fact that.....  no matter what actions one performs in his life, the most important aspect is one’s relationship to Allah , that is, one’s faith (imaan), God-consciousness (taqwa), sincerity (ikhlas) and worship of Allah  (ibaadah).  This relationship with Allah  is both demonstrated and put into practice,.......  as well as improved and increased, by the prayer.  Therefore, if the prayers are sound and proper, the rest of the deeds will be sound and proper; and if the prayers are not sound and proper, then the rest of the deeds will not be sound and proper, as the Prophet Mohammad saw himself stated.

⭐In reality, the prayer is performed properly – with true remembrance of Allah  and turning to Him for forgiveness – it will have a lasting effect on the person........   After he finishes the prayer, his heart will be filled with the remembrance of Allah ......... He will be fearful as well as hopeful of Allah .  After that experience, he will not want to move from that lofty position to one wherein he disobeys Allah .  Allah  has mentioned this aspect of the prayer when He has said,

“Verily, the prayer keeps one from the great sins and evil deeds” (Quran 29:45)

The prayers are a type of purification for a human being.  He turns and meets with his Lord five times a day.  As alluded to above, this repeated standing in front of Allah should keep the person from doing sinful acts during the day.  Furthermore, it should also be a time of remorse and repentance, such that he earnestly asks Allah for forgiveness for those sins that he committed........   In addition, the prayer in itself is a good deed that wipes away some of the evil deeds that he performed........   These points can be noted in the following hadith of the Prophet Mohammad, may the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon him:

“If a person had a stream outside his door and he bathed in it five times a day, do you think he would have any filth left on him?” The people said, “No filth would remain on him whatsoever.” The Prophet then said, “That is like the five daily prayers:  Allah  wipes away the sins by them.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari,  )
