The Importance of Safeguarding our Salaah

The Importance of Safeguarding our Salaah(Prayer)
Almighty Allah say:
"And enjoin salaat upon thy people and be thyself constant therein. We ask not of thee to provide sustenance.We provide it for thee. And the Hereafter is for the righteousness." (Quran-XX: 132).
The Messenger of Allah Muhammad [Peace be upon him] is reported to have said :
  • "Salaat is the mark of Islam. A person who says his salaat at the fixed hours with sincerity and devotion,observing all its regulations including the Mustahabbaat, is surely a Mo'min(believer)."
  • "Of all the practices, salaat made at fixed hours is most loved by Allah."
  • "Discarding of salaat is the only partition between Imaan and Kufr."
  • "Do not forego salaat intentionally, lest you should get out of the fold of Islam"
  • "There is no Islaam in a person when there is no salaat by him. The position of salaat in Islaam is as the position of the head in a body."
Among the last words of our Beloved and Noble Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was to guard against missing our salaah

In the lifetime of the Prophet, Abu Bakr and Umar, the Adhan for the Jumua prayer used to be pronounced when the Imam sat on the pulpit. But during the Caliphate of 'Uthman when the Muslims increased in number, a third Adhan at Az-Zaura' was added. Abu 'Abdullah said, "Az-Zaura' is a place in the market of Medina." Bukhari 2:35
The Prophet said, "When it is a Friday, the angels stand at the gate of the mosque and keep on writing the names of the persons coming to the mosque in succession according to their arrivals. The example of the one who enters the mosque in the earliest hour is that of one offering a camel (in sacrifice). The one coming next is like one offering a cow and then a ram and then a chicken and then an egg respectively. When the Imam comes out (for Jumua prayer) they (i.e. angels) fold their papers and listen to the Khutba." Bukhari 2:51
There was a woman amongst us who had a farm and she used to sow Silq (a kind of vegetable) on the edges of streams in her farm. On Fridays she used to pull out the Silq from its roots and put the roots in a utensil. Then she would put a handful of powdered barley over it and cook it. The roots of the Silq were a substitute for meat. After finishing the Jumua prayer we used to greet her and she would give us that food which we would eat with our hands, and because of that meal, we used to look forward to Friday. Bukhari 2:60
"O believers! When the call for prayer is made on Friday (the day of congregational prayers), hasten to the remembrance of God and cease your business. That is better for you if you but knew.

"When you finish the prayer, then disperse through the land and seek the bounty of God (go back to your normal business). Remember God frequently, so that you may prosper."
The Holy Quran, 62: 9-10
