Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you the one thing, narrated by the Prophet(SAW), that differentiates the Muslim’s from anyone else: The 5 Prayer’s(Salah).

It may seem difficult to pray 5 times a day but this is our duty and responsibility as a slave and servant of God and it is a sign of being a true believer.

Allah(SWT) says in the Quran: “The believers, men and women, are protecting friends of one another; they enjoin good and forbid evil, and they establish Salah, and give Zakah, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them, and surely, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” (Surah At-Tawbah, 9: 71)

Even the Prophet(SAW) emphasised that the Salah is what defines us as a Muslim.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Between a man and disbelief and paganism is the abandonment of Salat (prayer).‘[Muslim]

Buraidah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “That which differentiates us from the disbelievers and hypocrites is our performance of Salat. He who abandons it, becomes a disbeliever.”[At-Tirmidhi]

Shaqiq bin `Abdullah reported: The Companions of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) did not consider the abandonment of any action as disbelief except neglecting Salat.[At-Tirmidhi]

Let us all strive to establish our fundamentals and foundations with the Prayer(Salah) and Insha’Allah we ask Allah(SWT) for guidance, protection, forgiveness, and Junnah-al-Firdaus.
