Prayer Is the Head of Everything

Listen to Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:

Yesterday we read from the blessed Hadiths of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. Hadiths about ablution and prayer. What our Holy Prophet ﷺ told us and the biggest gift from Allah ﷻ that Muslims must do is prayer.

Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, “Whoever goes to the mosque to pray in congregation will be forgiven a sin for every step with his left foot and written Thawab for every step with his right foot.” It is so for every step no matter near or far. The more steps are made, the more Thawab is given by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. And then our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says, “If they know how rewarding it is to pray Isha’ and Fajr prayer in Jama’ah, people will not only go by walking, they will even crawl”. There is so much virtue and Thawab in them.

Prayer is the pillar of religion. Without prayer, there is no religion. The religion is not complete. Some people say “I make Tasbihat and all”. Even if you make Tasbihat throughout your whole life, it is not as valuable as one prayer. It doesn’t have the same value as a Fard prayer. That is why you must pay attention to prayer.

Prayer is the door to every goodness; goodness in this world and goodness in Akhirah. The Dua of people who don’t pray is not accepted. Their work doesn’t go well. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim used to say even if Awliya make Dua, Dua made for someone who doesn’t pray is not accepted. So along with making Dua, we must pray. He used to say “Don’t pass a day without prayer”. The more you do, the more benefit there is. They say “We can’t do it”. They should do little by little until they get used to it. Little or many, the benefit comes to people only that way.

The whole world is in distress now. The key to removing those troubles is prayer. They must certainly pray. And they will make up what they have missed later insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ not leave us in the hands of shaytan. May He ﷻ not leave us in the hands our egos.

The shaytan and ego make people so lazy that they run after other things. And they show praying as very difficult even though it is not that difficult. They show it as if it is impossible to do. Allah Azza wa-Jalla doesn’t order something that people cannot do. Prayer is the food of the soul. It is the head of everything. Therefore, may Allah ﷻ accept our prayers. May Allah ﷻ let everyone taste have this taste of worship insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
