Prayer (salaat) is the most important practice in Islam after declaring faith in Allah and His Messenger. The Prophet described the prayer as a light, the pillar of Islam, and among the best deeds.

The companion of the Prophet Abdullah ibn Mas’ud may ALLAH be pleased with him reported: I asked, “The Prophet of ALLAH, which deed is best?” The Messenger of ALLAH (S.A.W) said:

الصَّلَاةُ عَلَى مِيقَاتِهَاPray in its proper time (Sahih Bukhari 2630).

But this is for the true and sincere prayer that completes its purpose and objectives, both inwardly and outwardly, not simply going through the motions and rituals without presence of the heart in it through concentration. In order for the prayer to be fulfilled, we must allow it to purify our hearts, to keep us away from sin, and to enrich our lives in the remembrance of Allah.
