As I sit here in this cyber cafe there is a reason why I want to blog about praying. No matter what religion you believe in you Pray in different ways and forms. It can be at different worship places and there are different ways to Pray.
Being a young British Muslim girl I have understood the power of praying through reading religious books. However as part of the Muslim faith there are people who may and might only pray when they want something. My parents have always said and taught me: “If you only pray in the time of trouble then you are in trouble.” Makes perfect sense right? I believe to my personal experience prayer is more powerful than anything. You may not think that it is but even if you are an Atheist you must want to look up to someone and you probably asks question like what happens to me after I am cremated or buried?
There are so many ways how it can help and below are my reasons:
As a Muslim every so often I will visit the nearest Mosque whenever my heart wants attention I turn towards a beautiful worship place. It is a place where all your problems seem so little and your heart will be at peace whilst praying at a Mosque. Praying my Namaaz on a prayer mat and reciting beautiful Arabic Surahs is a peaceful feeling. Another formal routine for a Muslim is to recite the Holy Qur’an in Arabic. If you ever need guidance or as a Muslim you need any sorts of answers you can find your answers in the Quran. Yes you may think how can this be true. Well believe it or not the Qur’an has the answers to everything, from seeking guidance on marriage, life, business anything in the world. Praying your Namaaz and being in sujood, when you bow your head and your brain is in a position below your heart and if Muslims new the power of Sujood they will never lift their head off the ground. Praying is done in different postures, sitting, standing, kneeling however in Islam we bow down to Allah. No matter what religion you worship.
Words are proven powerful that words prove the power over anything. When praying to Allah you should not ask for anything negative for any one. If all prayers came true then the world would be a negative place. In Sujood a Muslim should always ask for forgiveness and to make you into a better Muslim.
An individual has to pray five times a day in a Muslims life should be a routine:
Optional prayers are Tahajjud
