ALLAH (Subhanhu Wa Ta’ala) has said in the Noble Qur’an: “I have not created the jinn and mankind for any other purpose except that they should worship Me.” (Qur’an e Kareem 51:56)
It is clear from the above verse of Qur’an e Kareem that the purpose behind our birth in this world is no other than that of the worship of ALLAH (Subhanhu Wa Ta’ala). There are numerous acts of worship (Ibadat) in Islam, and Salah is one of the most important amont theme.
Salah is obligatory for every Muslims, five times a day. Salah (Salat, Namaz) is viewed as the most vital demonstration of worship (Ibadah, Ibadat) in Islam and its significance is to such an extent that under not many conditions it can be omitted.
Salah (Nimaz strengthens our faith. It prepares a man to carry on with the life of goodness and obedience to ALLAH (Subhana hu Wa Ta’ala). Each time we offer our prayer (Salah), we reestablish our relation to ALLAH (Subhana Hu Wa Ta’ala) and we free ourselves from the weights of common sins, five times each day.
As indicated by a Hadith a sahabi (companion) of Holy Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) came to him one day and asked him “What is the thing that ALLAH (Subhana Hu Wa Ta’ala) loves most?” Blessed Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) answered “The thing that ALLAH (Subhana Hu Wa Ta’ala) loves most is when his people pray Salah on time.”
Salat must be offered in the pure place. So prayer mat is a must for every nimazi (one who is offer prayer regularly) to say prayer at any place
