The Clear Evidence
Salah is the biggest source for establishing relations with Allah, and asking for one’s needs. Allah says in His Holy Book:
Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 153O believers! Seek comfort in patience and prayer. Allah is truly with those who are patient.
Surah Al-Baqarah, Verse 45And seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, it is a burden except for the humble
Surah Al-Ma’idah, Verse 12Allah made a covenant with the Children of Israel and appointed twelve leaders from among them and ˹then˺ said, “I am truly with you. If you establish prayer, pay alms-tax, believe in My messengers, support them, and lend to Allah a good loan, I will certainly forgive your sins and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow. And whoever among you disbelieves afterwards has truly strayed from the Right Way.”
When we face any difficulty and trouble we should keep patience, and establish relation with Allah by offering Salah with intense care. Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) faced any difficulty, he would at once turn to Salah. As it is mentioned in a Hadeeth: Huzaifah (RA) said: “Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) faced any difficult situation, he would hasten for Salah with intense care.” (Abu Dawud, Musnad Ahmad)
Besides five times Salah, the Prophet (PBUH) used to perform Salatut Tahajjud (Salah offered at midnight or any time at night before the Dawn), Slatul Ishraq (its time begins twenty minutes after the sunrise), Salatudh Dhuha (its time begins after the sunrise and ends at the meridian (Zawale Aaftab), Tahiyyatul Wudhu (thanksgiving Salah after the completion of wudhu), and Tahiyyatul Masjid (thanksgiving prayer after entering into the mosque). Whenever there was an earthquake or wind storm, the prophet (PBUH) would go to the mosque and start offering Salah. When he faced starvation or any other problem, he would go to the mosque. When he came back from a journey, he would, first of all, go to the mosque. So, we should take special care of Salah, and if we face any trouble, we should seek help through Salah.
