The Best Practice of Prayer
Face meridian chart. These are a part of Chinese medicine. The theory is this – whereever you get a blemish or breakout, a cyst or a liver spot it correlates to a body part.
Very informative and later I will add further details to this post:
Well Being Muslim when we offer prayer we do a perfect exercise and before offering prayer we do ablution and while doing that we move hands on face, ears and arms and feet as well nose, ears, forehead etc so its a remedy whoever offer prayers without knowledge they do a perfect remedy and exercise for all body at-least five times a day 🙂
To everyone who can read it well:
Where is our attention?
What gonna happen if doctor while operating someone do a mistake and do not work attentively ?
What gonna happen if a driver do not focus on drive ?
What gonna happen if pilot or captain of a plane/or aircraft do not focus?
What gonna happen if an architecture do not focus on building base and they raise a building and miss something in base?
There are so many whats gonna happen if you miss the attention in day to day jobs and our duties.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
When we stand before ALLAH ALMIGHTY with understanding our every bit of the concept of ALLAH and ALLAH existence and MIGHT.
How we can loss our focus and attention?
How we can not focus to HIM rather thinking other things?
How we do not focus the way we are suppose and should be ?
Bottom line : Understand and again I will say understand:
Our dress and directions and tidy are all important but the fact is when we be bow our existence to ALLAH that is the demand of prayer. This is the way to stand before the Owner of all universes and creatures.
And this is demand of faith and believe
Not people and not what others thing but focus and attention with understanding of ALLAH.
I pray and seek from ALLAH to the path and understanding and faith and believe for us and for all of us. When we leave all our matters to ALLAH with Faith. ALLAH will take care of all our matters and issue in best way because ALLAH is best Caring and Wiser and Owner of ALL.
As some blessing reach to us its equal responsibility on all of us to reshare to people around us because blessings are for all none of us owns it 🙂 Allah Bless you all and keep you in peace and understanding to objective of life.
Learning knowledge as equally necessary as to re-share to people around as this is the very first right of the knowledge to share among people for the more betterment and understanding among people. and re-sharing bring more improvement and re-define the first thought and with collective effort of people the very first idea get more effective with the collective effort and help of minds from around the world. Stay Blessed all.
How to offer prayer:
From Holy Quran:
O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu’ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew.
Volume 2, Book 13, Number 33 :
Narrated by Salman Al-Farsi
Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) said, “Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons (assembled in the mosque for the Friday prayer), and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven.”
Volume 3, Book 39, Number 539 :
Narrated by Sahl bin Sad
We used to be very happy on Friday as an old lady used to cut some roots of the Silq, which we used to plant on the banks of our small water streams, and cook them in a pot of her’s, adding to them, some grains of barley. (Ya’qub, the sub-narrator said, “I think the narrator mentioned that the food did not contain fat or melted fat (taken from meat).”) When we offered the Friday prayer we would go to her and she would serve us with the dish. So, we used to be happy on Fridays because of that. We used not to take our meals or the midday nap except after the Jumua prayer (i.e. Friday prayer) .
Volume 4, Book 54, Number 433 :
Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet said, “On every Friday the angels take heir stand at every gate of the mosques to write the names of the people chronologically (i.e. according to the time of their arrival for the Friday prayer and when the Imam sits (on the pulpit) they fold up their scrolls and get ready to listen to the sermon.”
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 326 :
Narrated by Nafi
Ibn ‘Umar was once told that Said bin Zaid bin ‘Amr bin Nufail, one of the Badr warriors, had fallen ill on a Friday. Ibn ‘Umar rode to him late in the forenoon. The time of the Friday prayer approached and Ibn ‘Umar did not take part in the Friday prayer. Narrated Subaia bint Al-Harith: That she was married to Sad bin Khaula who was from the tribe of Bani ‘Amr bin Luai, and was one of those who fought the Badr battle. He died while she wa pregnant during Hajjat-ul-Wada.’ Soon after his death, she gave birth to a child. When she completed the term of deliver (i.e. became clean), she prepared herself for suitors. Abu As-Sanabil bin Bu’kak, a man from the tribe of Bani Abd-ud-Dal called on her and said to her, “What! I see you dressed up for the people to ask you in marriage. Do you want to marry By Allah, you are not allowed to marry unless four months and ten days have elapsed (after your husband’s death).” Subai’a in her narration said, “When he (i.e. Abu As-Sanabil) said this to me. I put on my dress in the evening and went to Allah’s Apostle and asked him about this problem. He gave the verdict that I was free to marry as I had already given birth to my child and ordered me to marry if I wished.”
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 657 :
Narrated by Ibn Abbas
The first Friday (i.e. Jumua) prayer offered after the Friday prayer offered at the Mosque of Allah’s Apostle was offered at the mosque of Abdul Qais situated at Jawathi, that is a village at Al Bahrain.
Volume 7, Book 65, Number 315 :
Narrated by Sahl bin Sad
We used to be happy on Fridays, for there was an old lady who used to pull out the roots of Silq and put it in a cooking pot with some barley. When we had finished the prayer, we would visit her and she would present that dish before us. So we used to be happy on Fridays because of that, and we never used to take our meals or have a mid-day nap except after the Friday prayer. By Allah, that meal contained no fat.
Volume 8, Book 74, Number 265 :
Narrated by Abu Hazim
Sahl said, “We used to feel happy on Fridays.” I asked Sahl, “Why?” He said, “There was an old woman of our acquaintance who used to send somebody to Buda’a (Ibn Maslama said, “Buda’a was a garden of date-palms at Medina). She used to pull out the silq (a kind of vegetable) from its roots and put it in a cooking pot, adding some powdered barley over it (and cook it). After finishing the Jumua (Friday) prayer we used to (pass by her and) greet her, whereupon she would present us with that meal, so we used to feel happy because of that. We used to have neither a midday nap, nor meals, except after the Friday prayer.” (See Hadith No. 60, Vol.2)
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 223 :
Narrated by Shaqiq bin Salama
I was sitting with Abu Mas’ud and Abu Musa and ‘Ammar. Abu Mas’ud said (to ‘Ammar), “There is none of your companions but, if I wish, I could find fault with him except with you. Since you joined the company of the Prophet I have never seen anything done by you more criticizable by me than your haste in this issue.” ‘Ammar said, O Abu Mas’ud ! I have never seen anything done by you or by this companion of yours (i.e., Abu Musa) more criticizable by me than your keeping away from this issue since the time you both joined the company of the Prophet.” Then Abu Mas’ud who was a rich man, said (to his servant), “O boy! Bring two suits.” Then he gave one to Abu Musa and the other to ‘Ammar and said (to them), “Put on these suits before going for the Friday prayer.”
The method of performing Salaah according to Sunnah (Hanafi) Note. Complete evidence of the Sunnah method of Performing Salaah can be obtained by reading:The Salah of a Believer in the Quran and Sunnah distributed by www.shariah-institute.orgHow should one perform two rakaat namaaz according to Sunnah (Hanafi)BEFORE NAMAAZ
Ensure that clothes are Paak and make Wudhu. Stand respectfully on a Paak place facing Qibla. Keep feet parallel about four fingers apart with toes pointing towards the Qibla and submit totally to Allah.
VERY IMPORTANT (for MALES).
No garment, jubba or trousers should be allowed to overlap the ankles. It is Makroohe Tahreemee to perform Namaaz whilst any garment is overlapping the ankles. This means that the Farz of Namaaz will be considered as performed but there is very little Sawaab or benefit in such a Namaaz.
Return to Contents of this page FEMALES NAMAAZWomen also perform their Salaat in the same way except for a few differences. WITHOUT HANDS BEING EXPOSED WOMEN should raise their hands to the height of their shoulders when saying Takbeer Tahreema.
NIYYAHMake Niyyah (Intention) of whichever Namaaz one wishes to perform.
“I am performing two Rakaats Farz Namaaz of Fajr (to please Allah) facing towards the Qiblah.”
When performing Namaaz led by an IMAAM, one should also make intention that: I am following this IMAAM.
It is not necessary to make a verbal intention but it is better if one makes a VERBAL intention. NIYYAT can be made in any language: Arabic, Urdu, Gujarati, English, etc TAKBEER-E-TAHREEMA (To say at the beginning.) After making NIYYAH, lift the two hands upto the earlobes in such a manner that both palms face towards the Qibla. Then say ALLAHU AKBAR and fold them below the navel. Place the hands in such a way that the palm of the right hand is placed over the back of the left hand, with the right thumb and little finger gripping the wrist of the left hand and the three middle fingers of the right hand kept straight and together. While in Qiyaam (standing posture) the eyes should be fixed to the spot where the forehead will rest in Sajda.
WOMEN DO NOT RAISE HANDS HIGHER THAN SHOULDERS AND PLACE ARMS ON THE CHEST.
Place the right hand over the back of the left hand above the breast and do not hold it like the MALE. Also, women should keep the feet together.
NOW READ THE THANA:
All Glory be to You O Allah! and praise be to You. Blessed is Your name and Exalted is Your Majesty, and there is none worthy of worship besides You.Then read: TA’AWWUZ.
I seek refuge in AIlah from Shaytan the accursed!AND TASMIYAH
I begin in the name of Allah. The Most Gracious The Most MercifulFIRST RAK’AH:
SURATUL FAATIHA AND ADDITIONAL SURAH.
Recite Suratul Faatiha and after WALAD DHALLEEN say AAMEEN (softly), then recite BISMILLAHIR RAHMAANIR RAHEEM and any Surah thereafter. It is necessary that a minimum of three short Aayahs or one long Aayah be read in proper sequence as in the Quraan.
Saying (Allahu Akbar) go in RUKU
The eyes should be fixed on to the feet
In RUKU hold both the KNEES with the fingers APART.
Ensure that the ARMS do not touch the BODY.
Keep the BACK straight, while the HEAD should neither be LOWERED nor RAISED.
ln RUKU recite softly at least THREE or FIVE times.
Saying (Allahu Akbar) go in RUKU
When making RUKU a WOMAN should only BEND over sufficiently so that her HANDS reach her KNEES.
The HANDS should be placed on the KNEES, with the FINGERS kept together.
In RUKU the ELBOWS should TOUCH the sides of the BODY and the FEET kept TOGETHER.
How Glorious is my Lord the GreatTASMEE: To say Sami Allahu Leman Hamedah.
QAWMAH: To stand up after RUKU.
Now stand up straight and whilst coming up say: TASMEE
Allah has listened to him who has praised Him.Then in the upright position say: TAHMID Rabbana Lakal Hamd.
O Our Lord Praise be to You.If one does NOT stand erect after RUKU and merely lifts ones head and goes into Sajdah, then the NAMAAZ will NOT be VALID, and it will be NECESSARY to repeat the NAMAAZ.
Now saying ALLAHU AKBAR and placing the hands on the knees, go into Sajda. (On completing the Takbeer one should have reach the position of Sajdah). When going into Sajda first place the KNEES on the ground, then the HANDS, then the NOSE and then the FOREHEAD. The FACE should rest between the two HANDS with FINGERS pointing towards the Qiblah. When in Sajdah the FEET should upright with the TOES pointing towards the Qibla. The ARMS should not touch the sides the BODY nor the ground. The STOMACH should be away from the THIGHS. In Sajdah recite softly at least THREE or FIVE times (All Glory be to my Lord, the Most High)
The feet should be upright with the toes pointing towards Qiblah.
If there is a valid reason, the forehead could kept off the ground, otherwise the Sajdah is not be valid. When in Sajdah the feet should not be lifted from the ground. If they are lifted for a duration more than three “SUBHANALLAH” the Namaaz will be void
In Sajdah the upper part of the leg (the thigh should not be upright but in as flat a position as possible with the feet spread towards the right.
While in Sajdah the stomach and thighs must be kept together.

JALSA (To sit between two Sajdahs)
Saying ALLAHU AKBAR sit up straight do not sit with the back crooked or stooped. It is important to sit up and pause after the first
Sajdah, merely lifting the head from the ground without sitting up before the second Sajdah will nullify the Namaaz.
Sit resting the BACK on the LEFT LEG and having the RIGHT LEG raised, the TOES facing the QIBLA.
NOTE that a GIRL does NOT sit on her LEFT LEG.
The second Sajdah is performed as the first one, i.e. going into Sajdah saying ALLAHU AKBAR and reading SUBHANA RABBIYAL AA’LAA softly at least three times. One Rak’ah is now complete. (All Glory be to my Lord, the Most High)
Return to Contents of this pageSECOND RAK’AH
Saying ALLAHU AKBAR stand up for the second Qiyaam. On getting up from the Sajdah first lift the FOREHEAD, then the NOSE and then the KNEES. Ensure that the HANDS are on the KNEES and not on the ground for support, except for a valid reason. Saying BISMILLAHIR RAHMANIR RAHEEM recite SURATUL FAATIHA and a Surah and COMPLETE THE SECOND RAK’AH IN THE SAME MANNER AS THE FIRST ONE.
After completing the second Sajdah of the second Rak’ah saying ALLAHU AKBAR sit up for Qai’dah. The method of sitting is placing the LEFT FOOT flat on the ground and sitting on it with the RIGHT FOOT upright and its TOES facing towards the Qiblah. The HANDS must be placed on the THIGHS with the tips of the FINGERS near the KNEES. It is important that the fingers are kept close together and that they face the Qiblah and not towards the ground. The EYES should be fixed on the LAP.
FIRST QAIDAH then read TASHAHHUD. All reverence, all worship, all sanctity are due to Allah. Peace be upon you O Prophet, and the mercy of Allah and His blessings. Peace be upon us and all the righteous servants of Allah. I bear witness that none Is worthy of worship besides Allah and Muhammad is His devotee and Messenger.On reaching the KALIMA form a circle with the thumb and middle finger and lift the index finger of the right hand and at (ILLALLAHU) drop it onto the thigh. The circle should be maintained to the end.
THIRD AND FOURTH RAK’AHS
If one wishes to perform four Rak’ahs one should not read anything more than the TASHAHHUD, but saying ALLAHU AKBAR stand up and perform the remaining two Rak’ahs. No other Surah should be read after SURATUL FATIHA in the THIRD and FOURTH Rak’ahs of any FARZ Namaaz, but it is WAAJIB to do so in any SUNNAT or NAFL Namaaz.
In the second Qai’dah after the Tashahhud read DUROODE IBRAHIM
O Allah shower Your mercy upon Muhammad and the followers of Muhammad as You showered Your mercy upon Ibrahim and the followers of Ibrahim. Behold, You are praiseworthy, glorious. O Allah shower Your blessings upon Muhammad and the followers of Muhammad as You showered Your upon Ibrahim and the followers of Ibrahim. Behold, You are praiseworthy, glorious.THE DUAS AFTER DUROOD

O Allah I have been extremely unjust to myself and none grants forgiveness against sins but You therefore forgive me with forgiveness that comes from You and have Mercy upon me. Verily, You are the Forgiving, the Merciful.SALAAM
Complete the Namaaz by turning the face to the right saying
Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah.Then turn the face to the left and repeat the Salaam. When making Salaam one should make intention of greeting the Angel. When making Salaam the eyes should be fixed onto the respective shoulders.
Return to Contents of this page COMPLETION OF NAMAAZOn completing the Namaaz one should recite ASTAGFIRULLAH thrice. Then one should raise both hands to the level of the chest and make Du’aa to ALLAH TA’ALA:
Holy Qur’an 2:255
Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime,the Tremendous.
In this post you will find how to offer prayer and what are the meanings of Salat/Namaz/Prayer.
This is a very nice STEP-BY-STEP prayer guide to teach new Muslims the correct w…ay of prayer :)!!! It is a really nice and made easy animation :)!!! This video is for TWO Rakaats… this is only applicable in Fajr prayer and the other 2 Rakaat prayers… In prayers which are 3 or 4 Rakaats you should return back again to the upright position from the sitting position AFTER THE WORDS WHERE YOU SAY: “Ash’hadu An La ilaha Illa Allah wa Ash’hadu Anna Muhammadan Rassol Allah”(the words which you pointed your finger in :)!!! Then in the 1 or 2 remaining Rakaats you pray with Surah Fatihah ONLY without the short Surah and then continue and finish the prayer as it was stated here :)!!!
