Versus From The Quran-Salah:31

Key Takeaways:

  1. Moral Compass: The Quran portrays Salah as a powerful deterrent against evil and vice, guiding believers toward righteous conduct.

  2. Remembrance of God: The most important objective of Salah is to establish a conscious and continuous remembrance of Allah (SWT) in our hearts.

  3. Holistic Practice: Salah is not merely a ritual; it is deeply intertwined with other essential aspects of Islam, such as Zakat (charity) and obeying the Messenger of Allah (PBUH).

Prayers (Salah)

Surah Al Ankabut [29:45] You shall recite what is revealed to you of the scripture, and observe the Prayers (Salah), for the Prayers prohibit evil and vice. But the remembrance of GOD (through Salat) is the most important objective. GOD knows everything you do.

Surah Ar Rum [30:31] You shall submit to Him, reverence Him, observe the Prayers (Salah), and — whatever you do — do not ever fall into idol worship.

Surah Luqman [31:4] Who observe the Prayers (Salah), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and as regards the Hereafter, they are absolutely certain.

Surah Luqman [31:17] “O my son, you shall observe the Prayers (Salah). You shall advocate righteousness and forbid evil, and remain steadfast in the face of adversity. These are the most honorable traits.

Surah Al Ahzab [33:33] You shall settle down in your homes, and do not mingle with the people excessively, like you used to do in the old days of ignorance. You shall observe the Prayers (Salah), and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and obey GOD and His messenger. GOD wishes to remove all unholiness from you, O you who live around the Sacred Shrine, and to purify you completely.

Surah Fatir [35:18] No soul can carry the sins of another soul. If a soul that is loaded with sins implores another to bear part of its load, no other soul can carry any part of it, even if they were related. The only people to heed your warnings are those who reverence their Lord, even when alone in their privacy, and observe the Prayers (Salah). Whoever purifies his soul, does so for his own good. To GOD is the final destiny.

Surah Fatir [35:29] Surely, those who recite the book of GOD, observe the Prayers (Salah), and from our provisions to them they spend — secretly and publicly — are engaged in an investment that never loses.

Surah Ash Shuraa [42:38] They respond to their Lord by observing the Prayers (Salah). Their affairs are decided after due consultation among themselves, and from our provisions to them they give (to charity).

Surah Al Mujadilah [58:13] If you failed to give to charity before conferring, then repented thereafter, GOD accepts your repentance. You shall observe the prayers (Salah), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and obey GOD and His messenger. GOD is fully Cognizant of everything you do.
