Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Books Section > The Muslim Prayer-Book by Maulana Muhammad Ali > Preface


Preface:

A Muslim Prayer-Book has been a long-felt want. Details of the Islamic institution of prayer were first given by me in the preface to my translation of the Holy Quran as long ago as 1917, and they have since been published in many booklets. The treatise I am now placing before the Muslim public, however, contains not only a detailed account of that unique institution of Islam, the five daily prayers and other congregational services such as Friday and ‘Id prayers, but also adds thereto what a Muslim ought to know regarding the most important occasions in his life, such as birth, marriage and death. To this are further added the most important prayers contained in the Holy Quran and prayer for different occasions as taught in Hadith.

A word of explanation may be added regarding the last mentioned prayers. Islam makes a man realise the Divine presence, not only when he is within the precincts of a house of worship but also in the midst of his worldly occupations, thus making a belief in the existence of God a real force in his life. It is for this reason Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, has taught us to resort to prayer on different occasions. The underlying idea is that we should always turn to God and thus feel His presence as a reality even when engaged in our worldly pursuits.

Muhammad Ali,
President,
Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha’at-e-Islam,

Lahore.

30th May, 1938.
