Prayer is a unique training and developmental program which, if well and devotedly performed, can achieve for a Muslim many valuable spiritual, physical, and ethical gains.


The importance of the prayer in Islam cannot be understated.  It is the first pillar of Islam that the Prophet, may God praise him, mentioned after mentioning the Testimony of Faith, by which one becomes a Muslim.  It was made obligatory upon all the prophets and for all peoples.  God has declared its obligatory status under majestic circumstances.  For example, when God spoke directly to Moses, He said,

“And I have chosen you, so listen to that which is inspired to you.  Verily, I am God! There is none worthy of worship but I, so worship Me and offer prayer perfectly for My remembrance.” (Quran 20:13-14)

Similarly, the prayers were made obligatory upon the Prophet Muhammad during his ascension to heaven.  Furthermore, when God praises the believers, such as in the beginning of the chapter entitled ‘al-Muminoon’ (the Believers), one of the first descriptions He states is their adherence to the prayers.

Once a man asked the Prophet about the most virtuous deed.  The Prophet stated that the most virtuous deed is the prayer.  The man asked again and again and for the first three times, the Prophet answered, “The prayer,” then on the fourth occasion he stated, “Jihad in the way of God.” [1]

The importance of prayer is demonstrated in many of the Prophet’s statements.  For example, the Prophet said,

“The first matter that the slave will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment is the prayer.  If it is sound, then the rest of his deeds will be sound.  And if it is incomplete, then the rest of his deeds will be incomplete.” [2]

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 God, that is, one’s faith …

Islam The Complete Religion

A-The Islamic Creed and Beliefs
Islam is the path to pleasing God and for salvation in the next life, for Islam is the clear and final message that God conveyed to humanity.
1-Islam is to believe in One Lord: Allah the Most High, the Living, the Most Great, the most Merciful. Allah has no equals and nothing is like Him. Allah was not birthed and did not birth, and the entire world is under His power and dominion.
2-Islam is to believe in the existence of Angels, peace be with them.
3-Islam is to believe in all the Messengers and Prophets like Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, peace be with them.
4-Islam is to believe in all the divinely-inspired books that these Messengers and Prophets received. The Quran is Islam’s eternal miracle which God promised to preserve. As a result of that, all Muslims, young and old, read the same Quranic text worldwide, without the slightest variation even in a single letter.
5-Islam is to believe in the Last Day, when people will be brought back to life.
6-Islam is also to believe that all the good and bad that come is part of what Allah has destined.

B-Islamic Practice
Islam calls for the best in actions and deeds, reflecting the fulfillment of complete servitude and obedience to God and the refinement of human nature.
