Salaah is Programming towards Righteousness – Dr Zakir Naik

SBIC-14

The second pillar of Islam it is Salaah. And normally people translate Salaah into English as prayers. To pray means to beseech, to ask for help.
I personally don’t think that Prayer is the correct translation of the Arabic word Salaah. Because to pray means to beseech, to ask for help. In our Salaah besides asking for help from almighty God, we are also praising Him. At the same time we are getting benefit from Allah (swt), from almighty God we are getting guidance. That’s the reason I personally prefer calling prayer a sought of programming towards righteousness for example.
If after surah Fathia the Imam, he may recite

Surah Maidah ch. no. 5 verse no. 90 which says

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا
“O you have believe”

إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ
“Most certainly intoxicants and gambling”

وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ
“Dedications of stones, divination of arrows”

رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ
“These are satan’s handiwork”

فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
“Abstain from this handiwork that you may prosper”

Here we are been programmed we are been guided by Allah (swt), that Alcohol is prohibited, Gambling is prohibited, fortune telling is prohibited, idol worshipping is prohibited. We are being programmed towards righteousness.
And Allah says in the Quran in Surah Ankaboot Ch 29 verse 45
اتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ ۖ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ تَنْهَىٰ عَنِ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنكَرِ
That “Recite of that which We have reveled to thee, by inspiration and establish regular prayers for verily prayer restrain you from shameful and unjust deeds.”
The Quran says that prayer restrains you from shameful and unjust deeds.
Therefore I prefer calling sallah rather than prayers as programming towards righteousness.
Or in lay mans terminology it’s called as brain washing.
But normally when here the Aadan and somebody ask’s where are you going? And if you say I am going for brain washing, it sounds a bit odd.
So I have got no objection if someone uses the English word prayer for the Arabic sallah. But I would like to remind them that it is not the appropriate translation.
Similarly when I say that Allah is the correct word God is not the appropriate translation but if someone uses God for Allah, when they are speaking to Non Muslims like what I am doing today, when I use the word God for Allah I have got no objection but I would like to remind them that God is not the appropriate translation of the Arabic word Allah.
Similarly prayer is not the appropriate translation of the Arabic word Salah

  1. Here are 7 tips from our Prophet (peace be upon him) to save yourself from Hellfire in sha Allah.

    1) Performing 4 rak’aat before Dhuhr salah and 4 after it

    2 rakah of Sunnah then salam and again 2 rakah of sunnah (Before dhur)

    2 rakah of Sunnah then salam and again 2 rakah of nafl (after dhur)

    Umm Habibah, the wife of the Prophet (peace be upon him), heard Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) saying:

    “Whoever maintains four Rak’aat before Dhuhr and four after it, Allah makes him prohibited for the Fire.”

    [Sunan At-Tirmidhi 428, Sahih]

    According to the scholars, the 4 rak’aat should be performed by 2 prayers of 2 rak’aat.

    2) Fasting

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said :

    “Whoever fasts a day in the way of Allah, then Allah will move his face away from the Hellfire by a distance of seventy years.”

    [Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim]

    Try to fast some Mondays and Thursdays outside Ramadan in order to get further away from Hellfire. Also the three white days (13th, 14th and 15th of each Islamic month), and many other recommended voluntary fasting days.

    3) Making dua which will make Paradise and Hellfire supplicate for the believers

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

    “Whoever asks Allah for Paradise three times, Paradise will say: O Allah, admit him into Paradise. Whoever seeks protection from Hellfire three times, Hellfire will say: O Allah, save him from the Hellfire.”

    [Sunan At-Tirmidhi 2572, Sahih]

    The dua is as follows:

    Allahumma inni as’aluka al-jannah, Allahumma ajirni min al-nar

    Try to say these duas regularly in sha Allah.

    4) Whoever has faith, prays and fasts will enter Paradise whether he fights in Jihad or not

    Abu Huraira (may Allah have mercy upon him) reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

    “Whoever believes in Allah and His Messenger, establishes prayer, and fasts the month of Ramadan will have a right upon Allah that he will be entered into Paradise whether he strives in the cause of Allah or remains in the land in which he was born.”

    [Sahih Bukhari 2790]

    That’s three pillars of Islam being believed in and being put into practice.

    5) Having a good behaviour

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

    “Shall I not tell you for whom the Hellfire is forbidden? It is every person accessible, polite, and mild.”

    [Sunan At-Tirmidhi 2488, Hasan]

    It means he is accessible to people, he is against harshness, easy-going in his character and generous in his personality.

    6) Giving charity

    According to Ady Ibn Hatim (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

    “Guard yourself from the Hellfire even with half of a date in charity. If he cannot find it, then with a kind word.”

    [Sahih Bukhari 1417 and Sahih Muslim 1016]

    7) Crying out of fear of Allah

    It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

    “A man who weeps for fear of Allah will not enter Hell until the milk goes back into the udder, and dust produced (when fighting) for the sake of Allah and the smoke of Hell will never coexist.”

    [Jami’ at-Tirmidhi 1633]

    The last part of the hadith is a metaphor for it being impossible, as in the verse where Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “and they will not enter Paradise until the camel goes through the eye of the needle” [7:40].

    These are just seven of many other ways of saving ourselves from the hellfire. The most important actions are to correctly believe in the Oneness of Allah and status of the Prophet (peace be upon him) followed by the five times salah.

    May Allāh Azzawajal protect us and our loved ones from His wrath, forgive our wrongs and have mercy upon us all.

  2. good word. (the good thing is: Muslems are awaiting Jesus (they are further than Jews) and we take His righteousness as a gift (it is part of His armor): His salvation, His righteousness, His truth, His peace, His faith, His word. Blessings dear Naik.

  3. What I saying is equal to Quran Mai sabhi Muslim se request karta hu ki ap apna dharm badal ke koi aur dharm apnao kyoki aj Muslim sari duniya me atankwad /khunkharaba ki pahchan ban chuke hai achhe Muslim bhi paresan hai to Muslim log apna dharm badal ke shanti wala rasta apnao

  4. First get the basics of the Deen right.When you send salawat to rasoolullah what do you get ? 10 hasanat? That's secondary. For each Salam you send to rasoolullah you get a Salam back from him(saw). His(sallalahu alayhi wassallam) Salam is purification,healing and Illumination.

    Some ulamas highly recommend to send at least 1000 salawat day.

    Ubai bin Ka’ab (may Allah be pleased with him), who said; ‘I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I supplicate often, so how much of my supplication should I devote to you?’ He replied, ‘as you desire’. I said, ‘a quarter of it?’ He said ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ I said, ‘half of it?’ He said, ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ I said, ‘two-thirds of it?’ He said again, ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ Finally I said, ‘and if I dedicate my supplication in its entirety to you?’ He said, ‘then your needs will be satisfied, and your sins forgiven.’

  5. Assalaamu alaikum, Dr.Zakir
    It would be more correct if you had used the word "conditioning" instead of "programming' because if something is programmed
    it won't change…conditioning is something to be done at regular intervals.
    I'm nowhere close to your knowledge sir but hoping that word would be apt….
