Prayer - Islam Guidance

  • Ali (A.S) is Salat (Prayer)

    Narrated from Abdul Rahman bin Kaseer:

    عن عبد الرحمن بن كثير عن أبى عبد الله عليه السلام في قوله:” حافِظُوا عَلَى الصَّلَواتِ وَ الصَّلاةِ الْوُسْطى‏ وَ قُومُوا لِلَّهِ قانِتِينَ”
     قال الصلوات رسول الله و أمير المؤمنين و فاطمة و الحسن و الحسين عليهم السلام، و الوسطى، أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام و قُومُوا لِلَّهِ قانِتِينَ طائعين للائمة.

    Imam Sadiq (A.S) said regarding the verse of Quran;
    "Guard strictly your (habit of) prayers, especially the Middle Prayer; and stand before Allah in a devout" [2:238]
    "Prayers" is (refers to) the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P), the commander of the faithful (A.S), Fatima (S.A), Hassan (A.S) and Hussein (A.S). And the "Middle Prayer" is (refers to) the commander of the faithful (A.S). And "Stand before Allah in devout" is obedient to the Imam's (A.S).

  • Health guidelines from Islam

    The Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) recommended adequate sleep. He never deprived himself of sleep nor overslept.  He also advised and practiced  to sleep at the early part of the night, and to wake up early in the morning. Science research shows that going to bed early can help maintain a healthy weight, stay more productive, and avoid serious health problems (such as diabetes, obesity, and heart diseases).

    Prayer is one of the five fundamental requirements that a Muslim is obligated to perform. According to a hadith (authentic narrations from the prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P)), the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) has reported to have said, “verily there is a cure in prayer”. There are some physical benefits in prayer, such as : In the beginning of the prayer, we move our hand and shoulder muscles therefore increasing the blood flow towards the torso. The heart in the most important organ in our body. Because it supplies fresh blood to all body tissues, the movements during prayer are a crucial source for exercise in our heart.  Certain positions makes our hips, elbows, knee and wrist joints, and backbone move in a way that forms a relation in our body.

  • Neighbors First

    The child had made it a habit to rise regularly in the small hours of the night and join his mother in her nightly prayers. He observed that his mother prayed for all Muslim men and women. She remembered them by name and prayer for their prosperity and well-being.
    O Allah, pardon them their sins and let your grace embrace them in all their dealings.
    On this particular morning, he decided to ask. When the prayers were over, he asked:
    Mother, you pray for all every day. Not a word for yourself or anyone in the family?
    Hazrat Fatima, blessings and salutations to her, said: “O Hassan, remember one thing. Neighbors first and then the house.”


  • Why Ablution is obligatory?


    Ablution is obligatory before the five daily prayers in addition to other obligatory prayers except the Funeral Prayer. It is obligatory to wash the face and the two arms, and pass the hand over, for Shia, the head and the feet. Similarly, it is recommendable, in the ritual ablution, to wash the hands and rinse the mouth and the nose in addition to the other actions. The specialist physicians mention important advantages for the ablution. They are as follows:

    1. Water that is shed on the face and the hands helps in activating the dermal capillaries. This increases the heart vivacity, activates the body respiratory processes, and helps in inhalation and exhalation. Consequently, the perceptive motivated nerves are stimulated. Then, the stimulation moves to the whole cardiac, gastric, and plutonic nerves, as well as all of the organs and glands.

    2. Eyes are protected against ophthalmic because they are washed with water several times a day.

    3. The nasal channels are cleaned from the germs gathering there by rinsing the nose.

    4. The skin is protected against dermatomes. The face and the hands are uncovered organs that are vulnerable to the affection of microbes. Immunity will certainly be obtained if those organs are washed several times a day.

    5. The oral cavity is protected against the germs that penetrate because of the pollution of hands. If the hands are always clean, they will not carry any microbe. Diseases that affect the human body through polluted hands are the digestive parasites, typhoid, and paralysis. At any rate, the ablution is the most notable means of protecting the human bodies against such serious diseases.

    6. The ablution alleviate tense nerves and anger, as physicians aver. The Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) said: “Rage is the Satan. The Satan is created of fire. Water extinguishes fire. You should perform the ablution whenever you are enraged.”
