The Importance of Prayer
The Importance of “SALAH”
From the last verse we can see the importance of prayer is so great that one is ordered to observe it while riding if one is in fear. Prayer must also be performed while travelling or when one is ill. Prayer can be performed standing, sitting or lying down if circumstances necessitate it. There is absolutely no excuse or situation other than unconsciousness, sleep, forgetfulness, madness etc., accepted for omitting the mandatory prayers. Prayer can be performed anywhere with the exception of toilets, graveyards, places where animals are kept and obvious dirty places.
