This is a book for every Muslim - it clarifies the true meaning of Prayer and its great significance. We increasingly find that for too many people Prayer has become a set of ritual actions to be performed mechanically without any meaning. The author emphasizes the spiritual dimensions of Prayer: he discusses the state of heart that one should be in when one stands to offer the Prayer; things that will help one to develop such a state of mind; and the effect that Prayer should have on one’s life. The book is filled with examples of the Prophet (s) and the Companions regarding their way of performing the Prayer and their attitude towards it.
“Indeed the well being of the soul begins with rectification of one's belief (aqeedah) and one's Prayer, and I do not think that I am exaggerating when I say that correct Prayer done with full attentiveness and humility is one of the most important means for the success and victory of this Ummah. So let us reflect upon our Prayer and compare it with the Prayer of the Prophet (s) and his Companions, radiyallaahu 'anhum, since that is the way to change the souls and turn them to that which is loftier. That is the way to success, well being and salvation in this life and the Hereafter."
