The Excellence of Salah

Allah the Exalted says what can be translated as,

"Verily, As-Salat (prayer) prevents from Al-Fahsha (great sins) and Al-Munkar (evil and wicked deeds)." (Qur'an, 29:45)


The Prophet Muhummad, peace be upon him, once asked his companions, "Tell me, if there were a stream at the door of one of you in which he takes a bath five times a day, would any filth remain upon his body?" They replied, "No dirt would remain."  He (pbuh) said, "Similar is the case of the five (obligatory) Salats (prayers). Allah obliterates all sins as a result of offering them." [Reported by Imam Bukhari and Muslim]


We ask Allah the Exalted to make us among the people who perform their prayers on time, accept it from us, and grant us a great reward in this life and the Hereafter.  Ameen.
