“The first thing the servant will be asked about on the Day of Judgement is his prayer. If it is satisfactory he will be triumphant and successful. If it is otherwise he will fail and lose out.” (Tirmidhi). The prayer is of paramount importance to every Muslim. Yet, despite its importance, it is not something that is easily fixed or perfected. It requires time and study. This short course is the perfect place to start the important journey to perfecting your prayer.
The prayer is one of the greatest blessings of Islam. It is the direct link to Allah in which the servant humbles himself completely before Allah. It is a means for asking. It is a means for forgiveness. It is a means for repelling harm. It is a means for closeness. Whenever the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, was distressed by a matter he turned to the prayer. It was his source of joy and relief. The prayer comes at specific times in the day and night to imbue our lives with the remembrance of Allah. This happens through focus. Making the prayer a time of focus, and a spiritual and emotional bond with Allah, starts with perfecting the performance of the prayer. This set of lessons offers key insights into this. From seeing what effect a perfectly performed prayer can have on a person, to realizing the need and urgency to have a focus-filled prayer, this course paves the way for students to transform their prayer. “Perfectly perform the prayers for My remembrance.” (20:14)
