“The first thing that Allah made obligatory upon my ummah were the five prayers; and the first thing from their acts of worship that shall be taken up will be the five prayers; and the first thing that they will be questioned about will be the five prayers.”
-Prophet Muḥammad (Kanz al-ʿUmmāl, Vol. 7, Tradition #18859)
The root word of ‘ṣalāh’ in Arabic means “connectedness” or “communication.” Ṣalāh (prayer) is the pillar of Islām, without which our faith cannot be kept strong. While there are different ways of speaking to Allah, He has specifically asked us to communicate with Him through ṣalāh. It is our check-in, five times a day, that allows us to thank Allah and reassess our day to ensure that we’re working towards our ultimate purpose in life.
In Islām, there are two main kinds of wājib (required) ṣalāh: the occasional prayers and daily prayers. The occasional prayers include Ṣalāt al-Mayyit (Prayer for the Deceased), Ṣalāt al-Āyāt (Prayer of Signs), Ṣalāt al-Tawaaf, and qadha (late) prayers for one’s deceased parents. The five daily prayers are known as Fajr, Ẓuhr, ʿAṣr, Maghrib, and ʿIshāʾ, and are the focus of this book. Designed for beginners, this pamphlet will explore the meaning, benefits, and method of ṣalāh, with some illustrations to enhance understanding. We pray this pamphlet will be useful to those who hope to learn not only how to pray, but also to understand the meaning behind the actions we perform during ṣalāh.
