Engaging the mind, nourishing the soul five times a day as limbs move blithely to prostration; an expression of servitude to He who created you—that is the prayer of our faith. Have you learned to perfect it?
The weekend of Minnesota’s THIRD AlMaghrib seminar is approaching and scores of ‘ilm-thirsty students are rushing to reserve their seats. The reason is obvious: they are Muslims investing in their Salah.
We have been taught that prayer, one of the five essential building blocks of Islam, is an act where the spiritual, humble impulses of the heart easily take root and flourish. But what is common now is treating Salah as a burden, and like another item on our to do lists, we finish it quickly before checking it off for good.
“It is the tragedy of our times,” one AlMaghribite said. “We find ourselves praying, but not praying.”
Is that the only Salah dilemma? Hardly. Because this class falls under Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence), the knowledge provided delves into specific rulings, descriptions, madhahib (schools of thought), the various forms of prayer—Eid, voluntary, Shaf’i Wal-Witr, Istikharah, Janaazah (funeral)—and their purposes. Let’s be honest: can you count how many times your friends debated about the proper position of sujood?!
