Important Commandments to All Believers

Surah Al Ju mu'ah [62:9] O you who believe, when the Congregational Prayer (Salah Al-Jumu’ah) is announced on Friday, you shall hasten to the commemoration of GOD, and drop all business. This is better for you, if you only knew.

Surah Al Ma'arij [70:23] Who always observe their Prayers (Salah).

Surah Al Ma'arij [70:34] They consistently observe their Prayers (Salah), on time.

Surah Al Muzammil [73:20] Your Lord knows that you meditate during two-thirds of the night, or half of it, or one-third of it, and so do some of those who believed with you. GOD has designed the night and the day, and He knows that you cannot always do this. He has pardoned you. Instead, you shall read what you can of the Quran. He knows that some of you may be ill, others may be traveling in pursuit of GOD’s provisions, and others may be striving in the cause of GOD. You shall read what you can of it, and observe the contact prayers (Salah), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and lend GOD a loan of righteousness. Whatever good you send ahead on behalf of your souls, you will find it at GOD far better and generously rewarded. And implore GOD for forgiveness. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

Surah Al Mudatthir [74:43] They will say, “We did not observe the prayers (Salah).

Surah Al Qiyamah [75:31] For he observed neither the charity, nor the prayers (Salah).

Surah Al Ala [87:15] By remembering the name of his Lord, and observing the prayers (Salah).

Surah Al Bayyinah [98:5] All that was asked of them was to worship GOD, devoting the religion absolutely to Him alone, observe the prayers (Salah), and give the obligatory charity (Zakat). Such is the perfect religion.

Surah Al Ma'un [107:4–5] And woe to those who observe the prayers (Salah) — who are totally heedless of their prayers.

Surah Al Kawthar [108:2] Therefore, you shall pray to your Lord (Salah), and give to charity.


These verses provide additional insights into the significance of Salah ( Prayers) in the life of a believer:

  1. Observance on Fridays: Believers are instructed to hasten to the commemoration of God when the Congregational Prayer (Salah Al-Jumu’ah) is announced on Friday. Dropping all business for this purpose is deemed better for believers.

  2. Consistent Observance: The consistent observance of Salah is highlighted in several verses, emphasizing its regularity and punctuality as a fundamental aspect of a believer's life.

  3. Night Vigil and Flexibility: The flexibility of the night vigil is acknowledged. While there is encouragement for extended meditation during the night, the understanding that individuals may not always be able to do so is recognized. Reading what one can of the Quran, observing Salah, giving Zakat, and striving in the cause of God are mentioned as part of a believer's devotion.

  4. Association with Other Acts of Worship: The lack of observance of Salah is mentioned in the context of those who did not observe the charity as well. It underscores the interconnectedness of acts of worship in the life of a believer.

  5. Remembering the Name of the Lord: Salah is associated with remembering the name of the Lord. This reflects the spiritual and meditative aspect of Salat, highlighting the conscious remembrance of God during the prayer.

  6. Worshiping God Alone: The perfect religion is described as one where believers worship God alone, devoting the religion absolutely to Him, observing the Contact Prayers, and giving the obligatory charity (Zakat).

  7. Warning for Heedlessness: There is a warning for those who observe the contact prayers but are heedless of their prayers. This emphasizes the importance of maintaining mindfulness and sincerity in one's prayers.

  8. Praying to the Lord: Believers are instructed to pray to their Lord (Salah) and give to charity. This association of prayer with charity signifies the holistic nature of religious practice.


These verses collectively reinforce the multifaceted role of Salah in a believer's life—ranging from regular observance and flexibility in practice to the association with other acts of worship and the importance of mindfulness and sincerity in prayer.
