a reminder…

…for myself as much as for my readers:

Allah (swt) says in the Qur’an:

“Guard strictly As-Salawat (the prayers) especially the middle Salat.” (2:238)

Ibn Mas`ud (ra) reported: I asked the Messenger of Allah (saws): “Which act is the best?” He (saws) said, “As-Salat at their fixed times.” I asked, “What next?” He (ra) said, “Being dutiful to parents.” I asked, “What next?” He (saws) said, “Jihad in the way of Allah.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

Jabir (ra) reported: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, “Between a man and disbelief is the abandonment of Salat.” [Muslim]

Jabiru (ra) reported: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, “The similitude of the five Salat is like a river running at the door of one of you in which he takes a bath five times a day.” [Muslim]
