Video of the Week – The Importance of Salah

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you

Well as Muslims, we all know the importance and virtuousness of doing our five daily prayers.  As well as being obligatory for those past the age of puberty, we know that they can be a means of forgiveness of our sins, acceptance of our Duas (supplications) and generally a surefire way of getting closer to our Lord.

So with that in mind, I present to you an interesting take on the importance of Salah (five daily prayers).  It shows three very different lives, how they were brought together and it shows the attitude taken by each of the people with regard to their Salah.

For a Muslim, the five daily prayers are essential in that amongst the plethora of good it does for us, it helps a Muslim maintain a healthy rapport with Allah.  I like the second person’s life because it shows how even when you are having fun and enjoying yourself, it is possible to take just a little time out for Allah, seek a place of solitude, and turn your attention towards Him – it’s so easy yet we make it so hard for ourselves…

May Allah grant all of us steadfastness in our prayers.

Ma’as-salaam – With Peace
