As-Salah (the Prayer)

As-Salah (the Prayer)

“Recite (O Muhammad) what has been revealed to you of the Book (al-Qur’an), and establish As-Salah (the prayer). Verily, the prayer prevents [man] from Al-Fahsha’ (i.e. great sins of every kind, unlawful intercourse, etc.) and Al- Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism, and every kind of evil wicked deed, etc.). and surely the remembrance of Allah is the greatest. And Allah knows all that you do.”

[Al-Qur’an 29:45]

Explanation

“Prayer has three attributes, and any prayer that contains none of these attributes is not truly prayer: Being done purely and sincerely for Allah alone (Ikhlas), fear of Allah, and remembrance of Allah. Ikhlas makes a person do good deeds, fear prevents him from doing evil deeds, and the remembrance of Allah is the Qur’an which contains commands and prohibitions.” Ibn `Awn Al-Ansari said: “When you are praying, you are doing good, it is keeping you away from immoral sins and evil wicked deeds and what you are doing is part of the remembrance of Allah which is greater.” [Tafsir ibn kathir]
