What do I do if I get too late to pray?
We normally delay the Salah from its proper time. This is the most common mistake in Prayers made by most of us. We always think that Praying is the last thing to do and we must attend to other matters first. Many workers delay Zuhr and Asr Prayer till night-time. One must guard his/her Prayers, which means to perform it at its preferred time and to be steadfast upon it Ibn Umar (R.A): Allah’s Messenger (P.B.U.H)Said: “Whoever omits the Asr prayers (intentionally), then it is as if he lost his family and property. Reported by [Al- Bukhari]
Am I wrong to read the Surah in my Salah very quickly?
We must take a pause and take breaks while reciting the Holy Quran during Prayers. We should avoid reciting the Surahs so fast that the verses get intermingled. One of the Hadith emphasized this issue:According to [Abu Dawud] “The Prophet (P.B.U.H) used to pause after each verse of Surah al-Fatiha.
Is it wrong to make Sujud before the Imam?
One should not race with the imam i.e. try to move before the Imam because the most correct ruling is when Imam says Allahuu Akbarr, then the person who’s following the Imam in Prayers should say Allahuu Akbarr. Not before Imam or with Imam. “The imam is there to be followed” [Muslim]
Is it ok if I read my Salah quickly?
Salah should be performed slowly and calmly with respect. Rukuu or Sujuud must be performed unhurriedly. In order to complete the Rukuu one must stay in Rukuu posture long enough to recite “Subhanah Rabbi yal Adzeem” at least three times. In the same manner, for the Sujuud the person should say “Subhanah Rabbi yal-alaa” three times slowly. This is the best way to complete the Rukuu and Sujuud in proper manner:
What happens if I look around in the Salah?
To avoid losing of concentration while performing prayers or salah,one should concentrate on looking at the point where the forehead is placed during Sujuud rather than looking upwards. Because this may cause mistakes while praying. According to Sahih Muslim the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “Let those who raise their gaze up during salah stop doing so, or else their eyesight would not return to them”[Muslim]
If I lift my feet in Sujud is my Salah valid?
Most common mistake observed in Prayers is to perform Sujuud by resting only the tip of head on floor. It is commanded to prostrate on seven bones, the forehead and the nose, the two hands [palms], the two knees, and the two feet.
Am I forgiven if I miss Salah while I am ill?
Prayer is obligatory and must be performed in any condition. If a person cannot perform ablution due to his illness then he may perform tayamum (Dry Ablution). If he cannot stand in prayer, he may perform Salah while lying down or sitting as well.The same case while traveling. The person can combine two Salah while traveling i.e. Zuhr Prayer and Asr Prayer. or Maghrib Prayer and Isha Prayer.
Will I get a sin if I walk in front of someone when they are praying?
It was stated by the Prophet (P.B.U.H) said: “Were the one who crosses in front of a praying person to know the consequences of doing so, he would have waited for forty better than to cross in front of him”
I was late, and ran to the Salah, is this ok?
When the time of Prayer has approached and some of us has the fear that he might miss his Salah; for the fear of missing some part of the Salah, most of us try to walk quickly or run to join prayers. This is not allowed in Islam: we must proceed calmly and reposefully When prayer has already started, then join in whichever part you catch up, and complete whichever part you missed”
I ate onions before I went to the Masjid, is this wrong?
Consuming foods that have bad smell like onion or garlic etc. should not be taken before the prayers because the bad smell may irritate the angels and the people in prayers. As all angels are bothered by that which bothers men.[Muslim]
May Allah (S.W.T) guide us all to perform our Salah correctly and help us to guard our prayers so when on the Day of Judgment (Resurrection) we are questioned about our prayers, we may succeed. Amen.
