Spiritual Benefits of Salah

Spiritual Benefits of Salah

In this era every single person is indulging in any worldly activity like earning money, making lifestyle better, studying, eating, sleeping, and meeting etc. Naturally, in the busy schedule of this world we forget to worship

ALLAH Almighty. When we do not worship, this worldly life and its worries become the central part of the human life. Our Wishes run wild and we lost in the lavishness of worldly luxuries and an individual begins to ‘chase his own shadow’, one thing he that he will never get. For many, cash becomes the only goal and purpose of life, a lot of you create money, a lot of you pay, a lot of you wish.
ALLAH Almighty has set times to interrupt frequently from the daily chores of life for many minutes and worship Him. Fajr Salah is performed within the early morning before we start our day, Zohar is performed within the middle of the day, within the late afternoon asr is performed, maghrib salah is offered within the evening, and at nighttime Isha prayer is performed.
Prayer or salah is the initial and most important pillar of religion Islam and performing it in congregation is highly advised for male, in congregation provides a way of knowing one another, friendship, and brotherhood. It additionally results in morality, piousness and it spreads a love for doing virtuous deeds.
When performing salah, Muslims stand shoulder to shoulder, this shows their strength and unity. Performing salah in Jama’ah additionally strengthens and ties the bond of brotherhood between Muslims.
Discipline and Control
The salah has the capability to turn modification for the higher in people’s life. the actual fact that we have a tendency to surrender no matter we have a tendency to do and line up behind a prayer leader (called imam) 5 times on a daily basis within the mosque, or notice area to wish in at work or college by ourselves, instils self-control and discipline in life.
Islam acknowledges that we have a tendency to all totally different, thus it permits flexibility. Muslim girls don’t seem to be needed to attend the prayers with the congregation in the mosque. A person who is disabled or not able to perform salah in any way might pray salah in sitting position, or even in laying position but skipping any salah is not allowed in Islam.

The purpose of the prayer isn’t just to fulfil the obligation but it is actually a life-changing act of worship which is performed five times on a daily basis. Salah is obligatory on every Muslim male and female and every Muslim must have to perform.

PRAYERS CAN CHANGE THE DESTINY

Prayers

In the recent era when many of people come to believe that Muslims can not be friends with any non Muslims. The Holy Quran commands the Muslims, to show equality and justice no matter what the situation is, even if it was towards somebody whom you hate. Now this indeed the most peaceful, excellent and very powerful message, that Islam teaches its Followers to love their enemy, as this Islamic teaching is telling us to show justice and fairness no matter what happened.

Human nature is surrounded by many difficult aspects and these occurs many times, when we are clouded with many different emotions and anger towards someone we hate, so many times it happens that this would cloud our judgment and make us to act unjustly and wrongly, but the Holy Quran is telling explicitly the Muslims to not fall for that, and to deal and show justice and fairness no matter what the situation occurs, even if it is when somebody you hate.

It was the practice of the Prophet (PBUH) to supplicate and pray to ALLAH Almighty to guide the enemies of religion Islam and to benefit them in the life hereafter. Islam is the religion that teaches us to love for other human beings whatever we love and choose for ourselves. Every Muslim wants to be guided and, therefore, we should always ask ALLAH Almighty to guide other people even if they are non-Muslims, unbelievers, oppressors, or sinners.

We should supplicate to ALLAH Almighty for guidance and ask forgiveness. Indeed, it is a quite bitter medicine and difficult to swallow when we pray for those people who have done something wrong to us and harmed us in lousy and terrible ways. Yet, it should be done for our own good and betterment to do so, as the hatred and envy in our hearts is relatively more harmful to us than our prayers against them.

In fact, it is the Islamic teachings to cleanse the heart of malice, hatred, and rancour every day by praying for the benefit of other people. Finally, we need to understand that praying and supplicating for other peoples is, in reality, praying for our own selves. Praying for others in the same way as you pray for yourself, your family has great blessings.

Even our wayward sisters and brothers in humanity, who may be lost in worldly desired and stumbling, they need prayers and it is a duty on us to pray for their assistance and guidance, just as we would wish others to pray for us in case if we were lost in misguidance. Prayers have a power to change the destiny so Muslim should use this powerful weapon against the evil things.

MEEQATS FOR PERFORMING HAJJ OR UMRAH

Hajj

People (not resident of city Makkah) who wish to come to Makkah from far in order to perform Umrah, will have to wear Ihram from any one of the selected Meeqat (sacred places appointed by Shariah). There are five places (meeqats) at some distance from the City Makkah that pilgrims should not cross before they enters in the sacred state of Ihram if they intend to enter Masjid-al-Haram for performing Umrah or Hajj. These stations or points are called Meeqats. These are the boundaries that should not be cross without wearing Ihram if a person is intending to perform Umrah or Hajj. Stations of Meeqat are discussing below.

Dhu’l-Hulaifah: This meeqat is about 9 kilometres from city Madina and about 450 kilometres from city Makkah. Dhu’l-Hulaifah is the meeqat for those who people who lives in Madina and for those people who intend to approach city Makkah to perform Umrah from that direction. Nowadays it is well known as Abrar Ali; a person who wishes to perform Umrah or Hajj from this route should have to wear Ihram at this meeqat.

Qarn al-Manazil: This meeqat is a hilly place and mountainous spot about 90 kilometers to the east of Makkah. This is the miqat for the people of Nejd or for those coming from that direction.

Juhfah: This is meeqat that is about 190 kilometres to the northwest of city Makkah. This is the meeqat for those people who are coming from the direction of Syria, North Africa, Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan.

ISLAM AND THE FESTIVALS OF EID

 

eid

Islam is a complete way of life. The righteous way that is chosen by ALLAH Almighty for Muslims to attain Jannah or Paradise. Being a selected way of life, ALLAH Almighty appointed and prescribed various festivals for Muslims to observe.

Man always wants and needs to socialize with other peoples in the society, and also observe communal gatherings that help bring back reminiscences of past events to help shape their future activities. Therefore, festivals, ceremonies and feasts have become an essential part of society and human life. Most of these ceremonies and festivals derive their origins from ancient practices, religious memorable events.

For Muslims, all religious ceremonies and festivals have their own special importance.  In fact, at the end of different modes of ibadah (worship) comes a peculiar type of festival instituted by religion Islam for its adherents. The Friday prayer (Namaz-e-Jummah) is the weekly occasion celebrating the five daily prayers of the week; the Holy Ramadan fast culminates into the festival Eid-ul-Fitr, while the Hajj rites and rituals culminate into the Eid-ul-Adha festival.

Viewing festivity as an opportunity to rejoice in the form of visiting to relatives, loved ones and friends, then we may say there are two main Muslim festivals as set down in law of Islamic: Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha. However, if it transcends to identifying with precedent events of divine and miraculous victories over enemies; such the victory of Hazrat Moosa (AS) over Pharaoh and his army, or weekly marking the end of an occasion like the Friday (jummah) celebration, then we can say that there are more than two occasions to celebrate in Islam.

First of all, let’s take a brief look at the stipulated permitted festivals in Islam.

Eid-ul-Fitr (the 1st day of month of Shawwal )                   

             The obligatory thirty day fast of the Holy month of Ramadan culminates into a great and huge celebration. This marks the end of Holy Ramadan, the blessed month of fasting, and is a festival of enormous celebration. In Islamic and Muslim countries public holiday is declared on Eid-ul-Fitr.

Everyone dresses and get ready in their best clothes. They go to the masjid (mosque) to pray eid namaz together. Extraordinary celebration meals are served up especially sweets. Muslims not only celebrate the end of fasting, but they also thank ALLAH for the strength and help that ALLAH gave them throughout the Holy month of Ramadan to help them in practicing self-control of abstinence from drink and food.

Eid-ul-Adha ( the 10th day of Dhul-Hijjah)

This is the other huge Islamic annual festival. It marks the end of the Hajj rituals or holy pilgrimage, Hajj is one of the basic 5 pillars of Islam, though it is celebrated by all the Muslims, not only those who are on the Hajj pilgrimage.

It is to memorize the time when Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) was ready to sacrifice his own son, Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) to prove obedience to ALLAH Almighty.

HAJJ AND ITS HISTORICAL VIEW

Hajj

The Hajj is based on a pilgrimage that was earliest even in the time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the 7th Century. It is believed that Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) was ordered by ALLAH Almighty to leave His wife Bibi Hajra and His infant son Hazrat Ismaeel (AS) alone in the desert. Though he was gone, the infant became thirsty, and Bibi Hajra (AS) ran back and forth about seven times in searching of water for her son Hazrat Ismaeel (AS). The angel Hazrat Jibraeel (AS) digs his foot or the tip of his wing along the ground, and water amazingly sprang out. This source of water is well known as the Well of Zamzam.

The Hajj is the pilgrimage to Makkah, Saudi Arabia. It is the major pilgrimage in the whole world, and is the last and the fifth pillar of Islam, a religious responsibility that should be carried out at least once in a lifetime by each and every able-bodied Muslim who can afford to perform it. The Hajj is an expression of the unity of the Muslim, and their submission to ALLAH Almighty.

The pilgrimage starts from the 8th to 12th day of Zil-Hijjah, the 12th and very last month of the Islamic calendar. Ihram is the name of getting in to the special state that Muslims have to carry while on the pilgrimage.

Prior to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) era, every year tribes from all across the Arabian Peninsula would unite on Makkah, as part of the pilgrimage. The precise imaan (faith) of the tribes was not important at that period, and Christian Arabs were as expected to make the pilgrimage same as the pagans. Muslim historians refer to the period before Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as jahiliyyah, the “Days of Ignorance”, in which the Holy Kaaba contained hundreds of idols, totems of every of the tribes of the Arabian Peninsula, with many idols of pagan gods such as Hubal, al-Lat, Manat, Al-‘Uzzá, and also several representing Mary (Maryam) and Jesus (Isa).

 
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was known to often perform the Umrah, even before Prophet (PBUH) began receiving revelations. Traditionally, Muslims would meet at different meeting points in other big cities, and then carry on towards Makkah, in groups that might contain tens of thousands of pilgrims. Two of the most well-known meeting points were in Damascus and Cairo.

 
In 631 CE, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) led his followers from city Medina to Makkah, it was the initial Hajj that is to be performed by Muslims unaccompanied. Prophet (PBUH) cleansed the Holy Kaaba and destroyed all the idols and also re-ordained the structure as the house of ALLAH Almighty. Performing Hajj was a dangerous journey for early pilgrims; Ibn Jubair noted the skeletons of the pilgrims who had died and lost their lives because of thirst during the sacred journey.
