“Prayers can change anything, even the destiny, and Namaz is the best way to pray to God—The Allah…”
Prayers are the wonderful gift of God for the people of every religion. According to various polls, 75 percent of the Americans pray daily in their prayer times.
In the same way, Sunday is known to be the prayer time for all the Christians. They go to their churches, recite their holy book, and pray to Jesus and God. Bible says the true God really does listen to prayer. If we pray in the right way and for the proper things, he will pay attention. In fact, he urges us to draw close to him. (James 4:8)
Jews also pray to God. Their prayer times are not restricted to a specific timeline. All the Jewish men and women pray and they should do that at any moment of the day. The Holy Book of the Jews is Torah. It calls prayers as a principle and service of the heart.
“You shall serve God with your whole heart.”(Deuteronomy 11:13)
According to the different surveys, some of the atheists also revealed that they sometimes offer prayers in any prayer time.
Muslims are obliged to pray five times a day. There are five pillars of Islam and Namaz (Prayer) is the second pillar. In Arabic, Muslims called them as Salat. Every Muslim men, woman, and children above 6 years should offer them. It differentiates Muslims from Non-Muslims.
Allah and our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) have commanded every Muslim to offer Namaz. Quran is the Holy book of Allah. In Quran, He has directed 700 times to offer Namaz.
The Holy Quran directs us in these words, “[The Quran 2:3-5] who believe in the unseen, observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), and from our provisions to them, they give to charity. And they believe in what was revealed to you, and in what was revealed before you, and with regard to the Hereafter, they are absolutely certain. These are guided by their Lord; these are the winners.”
Allah in another verse says, “You shall seek help through steadfastness and the Contact Prayers (Salat). This is difficult indeed, but not so for the reverent.” [2:45]
Every day “Azaan” is given from the holy places of the Muslims. These places are known as Mosques. All men should go there at the time of Namaz (Salat) whereas women should offer prayers at their homes.
Azaan is the call for Namaz. As soon the Moazzan give azaan, it means that the time of that particular Namaz has begun.
I am also sharing the azaan with the English translation.
Allah u Akbar
God is great
(Said four times)
Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God—The Allah.
(Said two times)
Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah
I bear witness that Muhammad (P.B.U.H) is the messenger of God.
(Said two times)
Hurry to the prayer (Rise up for the Namaz)
(Said two times)
Hurry to the success (Rise up for Salvation)
(Said two times)
Allah u Akbar
God is great
[Said two times]
La ilaha illa Allah
There is no god except the One God
For the fajar prayer, the following phrase is included after the fifth part above, towards the end:
As-salatu Khayrun Minan-nawm
Prayer is better than sleep.
(Said two times)
Some sects of the Islam also allow their women to go at Mosques for the Namaz but most of them, do not permit it as per Hadith.
Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) said, “Namaz is the key to Jannah”
Once he said, “Namaz saves a person from vulgarity.”
Namaz which is another name of Muslim prayers should be learned and offered by all Muslims without any excuse. Anyone who is unable to offer Namaz should offer them while sitting. And if even that is not possible for someone he/she should offer while lying.
Muslim women do are not allowed to offer Namaz during their periods. As soon they get rid of them, after taking bath known as Tihaarat, they should again start offering Namaz.
The timings of Namaz are as follows:
- Fajar—before the Sunrise.
- Zuhar—after the diminution of Sun.
- Asar—as the Sun begins to set.
- Maghrib—after the Sunset.
- Isha—at the start of the night.
The Salat timings vary from area to area. As I mentioned above the namaz times depend on the Sun. So, people offer the, according to the Islamic prayer time.
The number of rakaats also varies in every Namaz. Some of them are Farz Rakaat, aome are Sunnah, and some are Nafil.
Well, these five prayers are the mandatory part of Islamic practices. They are known as the Farz Namaz. A child of age six to an older person aging 90 years should have to fulfill the command by god—The Allah.
- Nafil Namaz and their timings:
There are some other Namaz also which are called as the Nafil Namaz. They are not mandatory but Allah loves those who offer them as well. Some of them are given below.
- Namaz e tahajjud—offered at late night after taking some sleep.
- Namaz e Chaasht—offered after the sun rises.
- Namaz e Hajaat—can be offered any time especially for a beloved wish to getfulfilled.
- Salat o tasbeeh—can be offered any time to ask Allah for forgiveness.
Many of you may wonder that why we have chosen this topic. The answer is simple to give but a bit complicated to understand.
In the recent days, the conspirators are trying to move the people away from their religions. They are striving to invent a new religion which has a basis of Money. In the practices of such beliefs, there will be no concept of prayers and Namaz which are the essence of the whole faith.
For this reason, I have written this piece of writing. In the above paragraphs, I have proved that Namaz and prayers are the most important part of every religion. And even the atheists sometimes feel to offer prayers.
Now, I am going to share some of the physical and spiritual benefits of the prayers. In every religion, cleanliness is very important before offering prayers. Our God has given us many benefits of the cleaning. Some of them are as follows.
Benefits of Namaz
- Before offering prayers all Muslims do ablution (Wazu) is the best example of cleanliness. The benefits of each step of ablution are given below.
- Washing hands:
This is the first step of ablution. Research proves that washing hands after some time is very beneficial. It keeps us away from the germs. Whatever we eat, it will have fewer germs than the people who do not wash their hands. It also helps in preventing the harmful germs.
The second step is gargling with water for three times. It helps in removing the germs from our mouth and teeth. It also reduces the bad breath and plague. Patients with Asthma, frequent colds and sore throat also feel relieved through gargling which is a mandatory part of ablution.
- Cleaning Nose and washing Face:
They are third and the fourth steps respectively. Cleaning the nose helps in removing the dust particles and the nose wax does not stick inside. Washing the face for five times is a natural cleansing. There is no need for facial or cleansing. It gives the best results and save us from the allergies, pimples, wrinkles, and dark spots.
- Cleaning Ears, neck, and the feet:
Though the fourth step is washing hands till elbows I have included it in the paragraph of washing hands. Cleaning the ears every day does not allow ear wax to stay inside. It also helps in the removal of the dust particles and saves from infections.
Washing the neck triggers the nervous system to work efficiently. It also helps the hormones to perform their duties in an effective way.
