THE IMPORTANCE OF PERFORMING NAMAZ

Main Objectives

There are 2 main objection of Namaz or Salah that are:

  • To realize the significance of performing the prayers (Namaz).
  • To understand the spiritual or religious dimension of prayers (Namaz).

The ritual prayer (Namaz) is the heartbeat of Islamic (Ibadah) worship, a living expression of Islam.  It keeps a Muslim in everlasting contact with ALLAH Almighty. The recitation of the Holy Quran, the sacred scripture of Islam, is an inseparable element of the Namaz or prayer. In it, one finds the purest expression of the necessary elements of Islam.  Being a ritual act of devotion to ALLAH Almighty, it has 2 faces: the legal prescription and the religious dimension.

The primary duty on a person upon becoming Muslim is the performance of the Namaz or prayers. The prayers are obligatory on each and every Muslim man and woman 5 times a day throughout their life once they declare Islam.  The prayer (Namaz) is the second pillar of Islam, after the 2 testimonies.  Whether one is poor or rich, healthy or sick, travelling or resident, a Muslim should pray.

Every Muslim must learn the rules and regulations of performing Namaz correctly and pray five times a day.  Learning and performing the prayer or Namaz must be the initial priority of every new Muslim.  If you are new to Islam, incorporating a new religious practice completed in an unfamiliar language may feel intimidating and strange, but soon with patience and ALLAH’S help it will become the part of your life.  Prayer to a Muslim is as significant as breathing, and it is not as difficult as it may seem!

The prayer revolves around 3 supreme realities in a Muslim’s life: ALLAH Almighty, His Prophet (PBUH), and the community of believers. ALLAH Almighty is constantly praised, thanked, glorified, and remembered in prayer (Namaz).  A Muslim turns himself inwardly and outwardly to ALLAH Almighty. Lastly, the prayer ties one to the community of the trust and faithful, especially when a person performed Namaz in the masjid with a local congregation.

The prayer (Namaz) is considered the most significant act of Ibadah (worship) prescribed for human beings.  It is the backbone of spiritual observance of a Muslim. Without a backbone, the human body would collapse. In the same way, without the prayer (Namaz) a person’s Islamic practice would fall apart.

Verse 14:40 of Holy Quran;

My Lord, make me an establisher of prayer, and [many] from my descendants. Our Lord, and accept my supplication.

The Holy Quran is a complete code of life and it’s also full of commands and orders to perform Namaz and to emphasize its significance. The Namaz or Salah has been divinely transmitted to us in two ways.
