Copy of Praying the Prophet's Way
Transcript of Copy of Praying the Prophet's Way
The prophet was best at perfoming prayer, ever. The prophet, when he prayed he included Qiyam, Rukoo, Sujood, and Juloos.
" Pray as you see me praying."
- The Prophet
Qiyam: The Standing Part of Salah
You start praying by saying ''Allahu Akbar" After this point all actions that are non prayer related are haram. They only become halal when we are done praying. When the prophet used to pray he faced Al- Qiblah and raised his hands by his ears and said Allahu Akbar. The prophet also put his right hands palm on his left hand when he prayed. The prophet used to say, Wajjahtu wajhya lilathi fatar-as-samawati wal arda,hanifan Musliman wama ana minal Mushrikeen Inna salatee wa nusukee wa mahyaya wa mamatee lillahi rabb-il-Alameen La shareeka lahu ,wa bithalika umirtu wa ana min-al-Muslimeen after the takbeer. It is preferred that when you start prayer that you say Al-Ist'athah. Afer saying Al-Isti'athah you recite Surah Al-Fatiha.And when the imam is done saying the surah you say ameen because if it matches with the angels ameen then all your past sins will be forgiven.And after that say a part of the Quran.
Rukoo: The Bowing Part of Salah
There is one Rukoo' in each Rak'ah of the Salah. Instead of saying Allahu Akbar after rising from Rukoo the prophet used to say, Sami'allahu liman Hamidah. The prophet performed one rak'ah of the salah by making the first Takbeer after the 'Iqamah was made. Then he recited Al-Fatiha and a part of the Quran. When he was done he would then say the Takbeer again and bow into Rukoo'. When you are in Rukoo' you put your palms on your knees while your legs are straight and a little apart from eachother. Your back should be almost parallel to the ground. In Rukoo' we say Subhana rabiyal azeem. After Rukoo' the prophet would stand up and say, Sami'allahu liman Hamida then he would say Rabbana wa lak-al-hamd or Rabbana wa lak-al-hamd kama yanbaghi lijalali wajhika wa atheemi sultanik or Rabbana wa lak-al-hamd hamdan katheerantayyiban mubarakan feeh. After that he stood up.
Sujood: The Prostration Part of Salah
The prophet said that the Muslim is closest to Allah while in Sujood.There are 2 Sujoods in every rak'ah during Salah. After making Rukoo' the prophet would stand and then make Takbeer and go down for Sujood. During Sujood your forehead has to be between your palms and your arms have to be seperated from your body. Your nose and forehead have to be touching the floor and your hands have to be parallel to your shoulders. So only seven parts of the body has to touch the floor, your forehead, two hands, two knees, and two feet. Then after the prophet came up from the first sujood he would say Rabbighfirlee then he would go down into another sujood, he would do this in every prayer. In sujood we say Subhana Rabbiyal A'la 3 times.
The Importance of Prayer
As you already know Salah is the second pillar of Islam. It was made obligatory when the prophet ascended to heaven on the night of Al-Israa' Wal-Mi'raj. First Allah ordered the Prophet to tell his followers to pray 50 times a day. But afterwards it was reduced to 5 prayers a day,because the prophet thought it might be too difficult for us. But if you pray 5 times a day it is equivalent to 50 prayers a day.
"The head of this matter is Islam,its pillar is the prayer and the top of its hump is Jihad in the way of Allah."
This tells us how great prayer is in Islam.
Praying the Prophet's Way
Since the prophet had no clocks,Angel Jibreel came to the prophet for two days and told him to pray at the right times. At Salat uth Thuhr, the shadow of something's length was almost like the actual length of the object.At Asr prayer the shadow of an object was twice the length of the actual thing.Maghrib was at sunset and Isha was one third into the night.Fajr was at dawn when the sky was yellowish.So this is how the Prophet learned the times of each prayer.
Juloos: The Sitting Part of Salah
Some Du'aa After Prayer
After prayer the prophet used to say du'aa after prayer. Some of them are, Allah humma antas salamu wa minkas salamu tabarata ya thalijalali wal ikram, Allahumma antas-salamu wa mink-as-salamu tabarakta ya thaljalali wal ikram. And Subhan-Allah 33 times Alhamdu-lillah 33 times Allahu Akbar 33 times. If you need more
Du'aa to say look in the Hadeeth book.
There is one Juloos in Fajr And two in the other four prayers, one afte the second Rak'ah and one after the last Rak'ah. In Juloos you say At-Tahiyaat (The Greetings) and As-Salat-Ul-Ibrahimiyyah(The Abrahamic Prayer) in Fajr you say both of these in the only Juloos but in the first Julooos of the other prayers you only say At-Tahiyaat and in the other Juloos you say both of these. The prophet put hisleft palm on his left thigh and his right palm folded except for the index for pointing when making Tashahhud. The prophet sat on the sole of his left foot and his right foot erected and his toes facing Qiblah. After reciting At-Tashahhud and As-Salat-ul-Ibrahimiyyah the prophet used to say a few du'aa before tasleem. To end the prayer you have to make tasleem . First turn your head to your right and say Assalamu Alaikum warahmatullah then turn your head to the left and say the same thing.
