Salat is the second pillar of Islam. Salah is offered five times a day individually or preferably, in congregation.
We offer Salat (prayer) to remember Allah. It brings us closer to Him.
The Qur’an says:
“Indeed, I am Allah; there is no god except Myself; so worship Me and establish Salah to remember Me.” (20:14)
Salat purifies the heart, develops the mind and comforts the soul. It is a constant reminder of Allah and His greatness. It develops gratitude, humility and refinement. It is a program which prepares us to match our actions with our words.
