THE MESSAGE

PRAYER: A PILLAR OF ISLAM

by Dr. Suhaib Hasan

The Messenger of Alah once said: "Prayer is the pillar of religion.' [Al-Baihaqi]

He also informed us that Islam is built upon five pillars, the second being to establish prayer five times a day. [Sahih Al-Bukhari]

This makes the image very clear: Islam is like a building supported by five columns; remove just one column and the entire building weakens. In the same way, when a person stops praying, his faith becomes weak, and the mildest blows can cause it to crumble. The prayer is so very important that the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said:

'Verily, between man and polytheism and disbelief is abandoning prayer' [Muslim]

How true is this statement! If you look at people walking down the road, it may be difficult to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims. Islam is not marked upon a believer's forehead, and neither is Kufr stamped on an infidel's face. But at the time of prayer, you can separate the two groups with ease. The believer will abandon his work, his business to join the rows of Muslims in prayer, while the disbeliever will carry on with his worldly affairs.

Surah Al-Muddathir narrates an interesting dialogue which will take place on the Day of Judgement. The believers will ask the people of Hell-fire: "What has caused you to enter Hell?" They will say: "We were not of those who used to offer their prayers. Nor we used to feed the poor; and we used to talk falsehoods (all that which Allah hated) with vain talkers, and we used to belie the Day of Recompense. Until there came to use (the death) that is certain." [Surah 72 :42-47]

The rejecters of truth are silent in this world, but in the next world they will themselves speak the truth.

FIQH
1. When a person intends leaving his home in order to undertake a journey, it is Mustahab (preferable) for him to offer two rakaats of Nafl Salaat before leaving the home. When he returns from his journey, it is Mustahab for him to go to the Masjid first. He should offer two Rakaats of Nafl Salaat in the Masjid and then go to his house.

Hadith: Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: "A person does not leave behind at home anything better than the two rakaats which he offers before embarking on a journey." It is related in another Hadith that when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to return from a journey, he used to go to the Masjid first and offer two rakaats of Nafl Salaat.

2. It is also Mustahab for a Musafir (traveller) to offer two Rakaats of Nafl Salaat when he intends staying over at any place during the course of his journey. These two Rakaats should be offered before he sits down.

THE SMILE
NO FREE LUNCH

Expenses were out of control at our company, and our bosses were not happy.

"When you travel," the vice president said in a meeting with his sales force, "lunch cannot be expensed. Lunch is a normal employee cost. And while we are on the topic, your dinner expenses have been way too high."

A rep shouted, "That's because we do not eat lunch."
