You have probably heard the saying, “Time spent in God worship should not be wasted or neglected”. Our mission is to assist Muslims regarding prayer time. We are here to give you an exact time for prayer in a different part of the world. This will allow you to pray on time because God prefers prayers that are performed on time.
Hadith of the day:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to offer eleven rak`at and that was his prayer. He used to prolong the prostration to such an extent that one could recite fifty verses (of the Qur’an) before he would lift his head. He used to pray two rak`at (Sunna) before the Fajr prayer and then used to lie down on his right side till the call-maker came and informed him about the prayer.
Verse of the Day:
When comes the Help of Allah, and Victory, And thou dost see the people enter Allah’s Religion in crowds, Celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and pray for His Forgiveness: For He is Oft-Returning (in Grace and Mercy).
Prayer is one of the most crucial duty to be performed by every Muslim five times a day. Prayers always have a prescribed time and it varies from day to day. Muslims are not allowed to miss prayer at any way because Allah swt said:
“Whoever establish prayer and give zakah, and of the Hereafter they are certain (in Faith)“
What are Five Pillar of Islam:
Muslims offer five prayers per day: Fajar, Dhuhr Ars, Maghrib, Maghrib, and isha. Prayers are acually a means of communication between Rabb’s person and ALLAH. They are the easiest way for ALLAH to love his Ummah and keep them close to Islam and the message that ALLAH sent through his Messengers.
There are many Word Prayer comes from the Arabic language and means salah or meanings for this word, including devotion and supplication salaat, as well as namaaz. Its meaning can vary from one language to another. Namaz, one of Islam’s most important pillars after La Ilaha Muhammadur Rasulullah (“There is no god except Allah and his Messenger Prophet Muhammad (PBUH),”) Islam is built on five simple pillars. These pillars include the recognition of Islam’s faith (Shahada).
Meaning Of Adhan/Azan
Muslims are invited to pray obligatory prayers by receiving the Adhan five times per day. A person who prays five times per day is on the right track to heaven. Adaan means to call Muslims toward success. Adaan can be recited by muizzen from the minaret at Masjid. In almost all countries where there are many Muslims, we hear the call to worship. We usually offer prayers face to the holy Kabbah.
Prayer Timings in a day
Muslims are required to observe five prayers during the day. Each prayer is based on the position of the sun. These are:
- Fajr (dawn), the first prayer you say to begin your day, is done before dawn at true dawn in memory of Allah (swt).
- Dhuhr (midday prayer): This is a time when you pray to Allah and ask for His guidance. It can be performed just before or after noon depending on the year. You will usually have just started your day so you will need to take a break.
- Asr (afternoon), a prayer to reflect upon the greater meaning of life takes place in the afternoon
- Maghrib (sunset), the fourth daily prayer, takes place shortly after the sun sets in order to remember Allah (swt), before the day ends
- Night prayer: Isha is the final prayer of each day. Before you go to bed and sleep, take some time to pray and express gratitude to Allah for His mercy, guidance, and forgiveness.
Nawafil Prayers in Islam
These are the obligatory prayers. There are a few other prayers that Muslims offer.
- Jummah Prayer is offered during dhuhr prayers on Fridays at noon. During this time, Muzzien gives a sermon and offer extra Jummah Nawafil.
- Tahjjud Prayer is said in the early morning. It is not mandatory. It was offered in order to obtain the pleasure of Allah. At this time Allah is not open to all humankind.
- Tarawih Prayer offered in the Isha prayer only during Ramadan. There is no limit to the number of rakaat. For Allah’s blessing, you can pray as many times as possible.
- You can do it! Eid prayers offered at the day of Eid. Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha are celebrated once each year. Muslims observe two Eids per year, according to Eid Al Fitr or Eid Al Adha timings in different region.
Why do Muslims Pray in Mosque/ Masjid?
The Quran states that Namaz can only be done at clean places, except graves and bathrooms. As prayer is a central part of Islam, the mosque serves as a place for Muslims to gather together.
It is myth that women can’t offer Namaz in a Mosque. However, Islam allows both men or women to offer Namaz at the same location. Women should pray in their own safs, or lines during prayer.
While any Muslim can pray anywhere in the world, Allah has given special rewards to those who offer prayers in Masjid. Many Muslims still pray in a masjid. Masjid, for Muslims, is a place to worship. Muslims can realize their humanity by praying together in fellowship. We believe in one God and the five pillars Islam. All of us are equal before God. Allah (SWT) does not consider anyone less or more worthy than any other. Allah is kind to those who love his human.
“The best example of women praying inside a mosque is when the go for Haj, which is one our five pillars. Masjid Nabuwi is the mosque of Prophet Mohammad where both men and women pray,” Mohammad Irfan (a Delhi-based Maulvi) said. Masjid Nabuwi is open to all, while other masjids around the globe have separate areas for women.
‘You shall glorify and praise your Lord and be with the prostrators, and worship your Lord until you attain certainty.’ (Qur’an, 15:98)
