IMPORTANCE HAS A GREAT SIGNIFICANCE IN ISLAM

islam

Namaz is the first pillar of Islam that the Prophet (PBUH) mentioned after mentioning the Testimony of Faith (Imaan), by which one becomes a Muslim.  Namaz was made obligatory upon all the prophets and for all peoples.

Verse 20:13-14 of Holy Quran,

And I have chosen you, so listen to what is revealed [to you]. Indeed, I am ALLAH. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance.

In the same way, the prayers were made obligatory upon the Prophet Muhammad, furthermore, when ALLAH Almighty praises the believers, such as in the start of the chapter entitled ‘al-Muminoon’ (the Believers), one of the primary descriptions ALLAH Almighty states is their adherence to the prayers.

The significance of the namaz lies in the fact that no matter what actions an individual performs in his life, the most significant aspect is one’s relationship to ALLAH Almighty, that is, person’s faith (imaan),

God-consciousness, sincerity and Ibadah of ALLAH Almighty. Thus, if the prayers are sound and appropriate, the rest of the deeds will be sound and proper; and if the namaz are not sound and proper, then the rest of the deeds and actions will not be sound and proper.

In actuality, the namaz is performed properly with true remembrance of ALLAH Almighty and turning to Him for pardon it will have an eternal effect on the person.  After he finishes the namaz, his heart will be filled with the remembrance of ALLAH Almighty.  He will be frightened as well as hopeful of ALLAH Almighty. ALLAH Almighty has mentioned this aspect of the namaz when He has said in verse 29:45 of Holy Quran,

Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of ALLAH is greater. And ALLAH knows that which you do.

Verse 70:19-23 of Holy Quran,

Indeed, mankind was created anxious: When evil touches him, impatient, And when good touches him, withholding [of it], Except the observers of prayer – Those who are constant in their prayer

As for the Hereafter, ALLAH Almighty’s forgiveness and pleasure is closely linked to the prayers. The prayers are a kind of purification for a human being. He turns and meets with his Lord five times every day. This repeated standing in front of ALLAH Almighty should keep the person from doing sinful acts during the whole day.  Moreover, it must also be a time of regret and repentance, such that he earnestly asks ALLAH Almighty for forgiveness for all those sins that he committed.  In adding up, the namaz in itself is a superior deed that wipes away many of the evil deeds that he performed.

During the Tawaaf (circumambulation) it is essential for a man to do two things

Tawaaf

  1. Al-ldhtebaa’ from the beginning of Tawaaf (circumambulation) tills the end. Al-ldhtebaa’ means placing the middle of a person’s Rida under his right arm and ends of it over his left shoulder.

When he is done with performing Tawaaf (circumambulation), he may return his Rida to its original position because the time for Idhtebaa’ is just during Tawaaf (circumambulation).

  1. Al-Raml during the initial three circuits. Al-Raml means speeding up person’s speed or pace with small steps. A pilgrim must walk at a normal speed during his last 4 circuits.

When he completes seven rounds or circuits of Tawaaf (circumambulation), he approaches Maqam-e-Ibrahim (station of ibrahim) and recites.

Verse 2:125 of Holy Quran

And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], “Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer].

Pilgrims prays two short Rakats nafil namaz, as near as conveniently possible, behind the Maqam-e-Ibrahim. When pilgrim completes the two Rakats namaz he or she must return to the Hajr-e-Aswad (Black Stone) kiss it or touch it, if convenient. Then pilgrim performs Saaee

Pilgrim ascends As-Safaa until he or she is able to see the Holy Kaabah. Facing the Holy Kaabah and raising his hands, pilgrim praises ALLAH Almighty and makes any supplications (dua).

He descends As-Safaa and heads for mountain Al-Marwah at a normal speed until he reaches to the green marker. He should then run speedy until the next green marker. He continues toward Marwah at a normal speed. When he reaches it, he ascends it, faces the direction or Qibla, raises hands and repeats what said on Safaa.

Verse 2:158 of Holy Quran

Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of ALLAH. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs ‘umrah – there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good – then indeed, ALLAH is appreciative and Knowing

Pilgrim continues this process until he or she completes seven laps.

During Saaee pilgrim may recite what he or she wills of supplications (dua), recitation of Holy Quran, and mentioning ALLAH Almighty. In completion of Saaee men completely shaves his head hairs, whereas women just clips her head hair the length of a finger tip.With that, Umrah is completed and now pilgrim is free from to the restrictions of Ihraam and to dress in other clothing, applies perfume etc.
