Why do Muslims Pray?

Assalam u alaikum wr wb,

Many a times , moving with life , we get frustrated and tired. We get to understand that the life we are living isn’t giving us all that we desire. It isn’t pointing out exactly the things we want and making them reach our way. This disappointment leads to something known as frustration. Whether we want or not ,we do get frustrated at times in our lives. Every once in a while no matter what the reason is, life happens. It won’t be wrong to say that sometimes life is a little bit unfair. Although it will also be no wrong to say that life balances out on other times and makes up for our bad times. Life does make sense.

To eradicate the building of negative thoughts inside of us , we all need some peace of mind. This is why Muslims pray, it gives us the motivation to stay positive and it gives us the hope. The connection with Allah subhana wa taala is a very important connection. To realize its importance is only through one way and that is consistent prayer. How can praying remove the negative thoughts? Sometimes we are so down that we complain even in our prayer! Well, that’s the whole point when I see it ,praying helps us talk our mind out to someone who helps us in a way we need to be helped. Isn’t it beautiful? Isn’t it what we all want , for someone to see our situation and then maybe work around with it for our sake. I think this is what we all want at times. It is also a beautiful reminder that the controlling power is the supreme power of Allah and at the end we always ask Him for assistance.

Situations are good and bad but wherever we are, we must pray.

  • Prayer is the contentment of soul and mind.
  • It is a gateway out of the negative thoughts.
  • It keeps us consistent and sharp.
  • It disciplines us.
  • It guides our shame and essence of knowledge.
  • It gives us humbleness in all that we do.
  • It directs us to our destination.
  • It helps us gain motivation and consciousness to do the right thing at the right time.

Pray right to stay right.
Spring
May Allah help us all to pray and to complete our prayer and acknowledge the importance of praying, consistently. Ameen.
