Your soul needs salah [daily prayers]

Dear Readers,

Today I want to talk to you about a serious matter

How many times, have you heard about prayers? So many times, I am sure

Many people, not only Muslim men and women, but the whole humanity, do not pray

They believe that this is a waste of time because prayers mean subordination, superstition, something that men have invented in order to enslave others, that the church has invented in order to control the masses…..

Or there are others who do not deny the fact that prayer is obligatory but are indifferent to any form of worship. They think :”I don’t have enough time” or they say: “When I will grow old, i’ll do it because old people have nothing to do so they can pray instead of staying idle”…….there are so many reasons that we give to ourselves and this is so sad!!!

Religion has been marred by human hands and human minds. it has been corrupted yet if you make an effort to research, you will surely realize that God exists. Yes, He does!! He is the Creator of all and He knows specifically your needs

Your body has been created with many elements. That is why you  need oxygen to breathe because your body has ether. You need water because your body contains a high percentage of water. Likewise, inside your body, there is a SOUL.


My point here is to make you understand. if you have a physical body, you need to feed it but  your soul is made of spirit, so how do you feed it?

O please don’t tell me that your soul does not need food. It does not require material food but it requires SPIRITUAL FOOD BECAUSE THE SOUL IS SPIRITUAL

I hope by reading this, it is making sense to your mind because the mind understands things through the intellect. [in our next topic we can discuss the food for the mind]

Right now, I am saying that your soul needs food this is why the Creator of the whole universe has prescribed FOOD FOR YOUR SOUL and this is SALAH [obligatory prayers]

If you do not feed your soul, you will feel depressed, lethargic, confused and very often you don’t even realize that you are starving your soul. You are doing a great injustice to your SOUL because you are taking care of your stomach and you are neglecting your soul. The reason for this is clear, when your body is hungry, you are used to feed it. Often we feed it too much that we fall sick. When the heart aches because somebody has hurt you and left you, then you cry because you feel the pain. So, you try to feed your heart with loving people and having people who can love you. But what about the soul? The soul is hidden. it does not manifest itself in the same way as does the heart or the stomach. So you have the tendency to neglect it because it does not manifest itself in the same way. You think it does not require food and this is where you are wrong

In fact, all your problems come from this ignorance. You need to feed your soul with spiritual food. As I mentioned above, your soul is spiritual. So, salah with awareness and consciousness brings solace to the soul. The soul must be nourished five times daily. like you feed your stomach three times daily with a complete meal, so your soul needs five times to be nourised.


Uthman bin ‘Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying: “One who performs ‘Isha’ prayer in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat for half of the night. And one who performs the Fajr prayer in congregation, is as if he has performed Salat the whole night.”

reference : Book 9, Hadith 81

Putting your head to the ground five times daily is a unique opportunity given to those whom Allah loves – Ammaara Uddeen 

Raising your hands up and asking the Creator for your needs, is a sign of humility. Only God the proprietor of the Worlds possess all the treasures and wealth while you are needful of Him. So, everyday, raise your hands in supplication and ask


I wish you all a happy life

May you take care of your soul by nourishing it five times daily
