What is Salah and Why is it Important? | The Best Prayer Times & Azan App “Prayer Now”

What is Salah? Why is it important? Why do we pray? And what are the 5 types of Salah?

Salah is the second pillar of Islam after the shahada (testimony of faith), it is defined as the act of offering prayers to Allah (SWT).

Salah is a daily obligation upon all Muslims "baligh" (mature) age. It is a fundamental role in the Islamic faith, Salah is considered the act of worshipping Allah (SWT).

According to the Quran, there are many verses that show the importance of Salah, here are two verses from the Quran:

Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do. "Qur'an - Chapter 29, Verse 45"

But those who hold fast to the Book and establish prayer – indeed, We will not allow being lost the reward of the pious. "Qur'an - Chapter 7, Verse 170"

The Importance of Islamic Prayers:

  • Salah’s principle is to make sure that Muslims maintain their devotion and faith in Allah (SWT).
  • Salah increases the closeness to Allah (SWT) “Taqwa”.
  • Salah makes us remain conscious of the importance of faith and submission to Allah (SWT).
  • Salah ensures that we stay within the boundaries of religion “Deen” and remain mindful of one’s faith.

The Best Prayer Times and Athan App: Facts About Salah:

Salah must be performed with a specific structure and set of principles and they must be followed. Muslims pray 5 times a day, however, there are many Muslims who are still not aware of why we pray 5 times a day.

The real reason where the number five came from is when Muhammad (peace be upon him) became a Prophet at the age of forty, and one of the first things he was taught was how to pray. Also, Allah (SWT) sent the angel Jibreel in order to teach Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) how to make Wudu and perform the salah.
