Narrated Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, I heard Allah's Apostle, peace and blessings be upon him, saying:--
"IF THERE WAS A RIVER AT THE DOOR OF ANYONE OF YOU
AND HE TOOK A BATH IN IT 5 TIMES A DAY, WOULD YOU
NOTICE ANY DIRT ON HIM?". They said, "NOT A TRACE OF
DIRT WOULD BE LEFT". The Prophet, Peace be upon him,
added, "THAT IS THE EXAMPLE OF THE 5 PRAYERS WITH WHICH
ALLAH BLOTS OUT (annuls) EVIL DEEDS". [Bukhari; Book 10, No.506]
In yet another Hadith, the Prophet, peace be upon him, was quoted saying:--
"THE FIRST MATTER THAT THE SERVANT WILL BE BROUGHT TO
ACCOUNT FOR ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT IS THE PRAYER. IF
IT IS SOUND, THEN THE REST OF HIS DEEDS WILL BE SOUND.
AND IF IT IS BAD, THEN THE REST OF HIS DEEDS WILL BE BAD"
It is sad, however, to note that today may Muslims do not accord this important second pillar of Islam (Sallah) the importance and priority it deserves. You hear some say 'I am busy' or 'I have no time' to pray now (at its stated time)... I will pray later.
You/We must drop that attitude and say our Prayers on time and preferably in congregation. We must remember that what distinguishes us, Believers, from Munafiqs (hypocrites) is Sallah-- the 5 daily Prayers.
