The importance of prayer

Prayer is the second pillar of Islam and the pillar of religion, and it is the first act of worship for which a Muslim will be held accountable on the Day of Resurrection. Muslims pray five times a day and it is obligatory for every sane adult Muslim, whether male or female.

Prayer has great merit, as it raises a Muslim by degrees in Paradise, removes sins and transgressions from him, and is a reason for him to enter Paradise. It also teaches a person order in various aspects of life, and prevents him from indecency and evil, and it demonstrates servitude to God alone and a direct connection between the servant and his Lord. Prayer is also one of the reasons for the descending of mercy, blessing, and the righteousness of all deeds.
