Prayer (salah) is the second Pillar of Islam and together with the Shahada is considered the foundations of Islamic Faith. Prayer is performed five times every day and represents the most visible and most outward expression of the believer's attachment to his faith.
The importance of prayer may be judged from the following facts:
The prayer makes a Muslim remember God every moment of the day and helps him to keep away from committing faults intentionally or unintentionally. It must also be said that it becomes increasingly difficult to harbor unkind thoughts or perform ill-deeds when you keep Almighty God in the forefront of your conscience.
In a sense, salah is food for one's own soul. As such, no Muslim
can ask another to do the salah for him, just as no hungry person
can ask another to eat for him. Just as we eat a few specific times
a day to keep our physical body nourished, a Muslim does the salah
five times a day to keep his soul nourished.
