PLEASE WATCH STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PERFORM THE SALAH

Uploaded by khalifahklothing
Fajr 00:01 | Dhuhr 05:55 | Asr 15:46 | Maghrib 25:41 | Isha 33:54
My Prayer have put together all the 5 daily prayers in full, in order to see first hand how the prayer is performed. Please note: The recitation is read out aloud for the purpose of demonstrating what needs to be said during prayer. Some prayers require the recitation and other aspects to be said silently. For further details, please consult your local Islamic centre. Step by step instructions on how to perform the Salah, please watch "My Prayer - Step by Step Guide to Salah" Prayer is a unique training and developmental program which, if well and devotedly performed, can achieve for a Muslim many valuable spiritual, physical, and ethical gains. Salah is the daily ritual prayer enjoined upon all Muslims as one of the five Pillars of Islam. It is performed five times a day by all Muslims. Salah is a precise worship, different from praying on the inspiration of the moment. Muslims pray or, perhaps more correctly, worship five times throughout the day: · Between first light and sunrise. · After the sun has passed the middle of the sky. · Between mid-afternoon and sunset. · Between sunset and the last light of the day. · Between darkness and midnight. Each prayer may take at least 5 minutes, but it may be lengthened as a person wishes. Muslims can pray in any clean environment, alone or together, in a mosque or at home, at work or on the road, indoors or out. Under special circumstances, such as illness, journey, or war, certain allowances in the prayers are given to make their offering easy. Having specific times each day to be close to God helps Muslims remain aware of the importance of their faith, and the role it plays in every part of life. Muslims start their day by cleaning themselves and then standing before their Lord in prayer. The prayers consist of recitations from the Quran in Arabic and a sequence of movements: standing, bowing, prostrating, and sitting. All recitations and movements express submission, humility, and homage to God. The various postures Muslims assume during their prayers capture the spirit of submission; the words remind them of their commitments to God. The prayer also reminds one of belief in the Day of Judgment and of the fact that one has to appear before his or her Creator and give an account of their entire life. This is how a Muslim starts their day. In the course of the day, Muslims dissociate themselves form their worldly engagements for a few moments and stand before God. This brings to mind once again the real purpose of life. These prayers serve as a constant reminder throughout the day to help keep believers mindful of God in the daily stress of work, family, and distractions of life. Prayer strengthens faith, dependence on God, and puts daily life within the perspective of life to come after death and the last judgment. As they prepare to pray, Muslims face Mecca, the holy city that houses the Kaaba (the ancient place of worship built by Abraham and his son Ishmael). At the end of the prayer, the shahada (testimony of faith) is recited, and the greeting of peace, "Peace be upon all of you and the mercy and blessings of God," is repeated twice. Though individual performance of salah is permissible, collective worship in the mosque has special merit and Muslims are encouraged to perform certain salah with others. With their faces turned in the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca, the worshipers align themselves in parallel rows behind the imam, or prayer leader, who directs them as they execute the physical postures coupled with Quran recitations. Although not religiously mandated, individual devotional prayers, especially during the night, are emphasized and are a common practice among pious Muslims.

NADA اهل الصلاح - ندى القلعة - عيد الاضحى

TODAY PRAYER GOES TO THE SICK AND THE NEEDY


There is not strength and power besides the strength and power of Subhaanahu Wa Taala.
In the light of the Hadeeth "LA HAWLA WALA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH" is a cure for ninety nine sicknesses, worry and anxiety being the least of them.
O Allah, they beg your forgiveness for every sin (they have committed) and they repent to you "Al-Wakil" O Allah, Lord of Jibreel, Mika-Eel, Israfeel and Lord of Ibraheem, Isma-Eel and Ishaaq, grant them safety and ease their pain. Do not let anyone of your creation whom they cannot fight have the better of them. They're pleased with you as their Lord, Islam as their religion, Muhammad as their messenger and the Holy Qur'aan as their judge and leader. O Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala have mercy on them all and deliver them at once from their difficulties and hardships. Only you alone have the power to fulfil one's needs.
"Oooooohn ba ni be me Oooooohn"
"Oooooohn ba ni be me Oooooohn"
"Oooooohn ba ni be me Oooooohn"
"Oooooohn ba ni be me Oooooohn"
I declare the purity of Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in numbers equivalent to His creatures;
I declare the purity of Ya-Muqsit in a manner befititing to his pleasure;
I declare the purity of Al-Afuw in weight equal to his Throne;
I declare the purity of Dhul-Jalal-Wal-Ikram in quantities equal to the ink of his words.
Alhamdulilah
All praises are due to Subhanahu Wa Taala in weight equal to the ink of his words. Rasoolullah Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam and his messenge Muhammad/Ibrahim Sallallahu alahyi-wasallam

MILLION HOODIES MARCH FOR TRAYVON MARTIN ...UNION SQUARE, NEW YORK CITY ON WEDNESDAY EVENING 03/21/2012

17-year-old Travyvon Martin.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, you’ve probably heard about 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was tragically killed last month at the hands of a demented gun-toting neighborhood watch leader at an upscale neighborhood in Sanford, FL.

After repeated requests for the release of the audio recordings of the numerous 911 calls that were placed that night, the Sanford police department finally released the recordings over the weekend.

Trayvon Martin's mother and father speak to the media during a press conference in Sanford, FL on Friday, March 16th 2012
Trayvon Martin’s family and their lawyers were given the opportunity to listen to the audio before it was made public.
Before the release of the audio recordings, police tried to say that Zimmerman was the one who was heard screaming, however now that we — the public — can hear the tapes for ourselves … we all now know the truth.
“You hear a shot, a clear shot, that we can only assume is a warning shot,” said Natalie Jackson, a family attorney. “Then a 17-year-old boy is begging for his life. Everything tells me that that was Trayvon Martin.
Tracy Martin — the teenager’s father — broke down crying as he listened to the audio on Friday, the family lawyers said. “My son was crying for help, and he still shot him,” Mr. Martin said, according to Benjamin Crump, another family attorney.
Barely lasting through half the tapes, Trayvon’s mother Sybrina Fulton ran out of the room screaming and crying.

Here is a video snapshot of the Million Hoodies March for Travon Martin in Union Square, New York City on March 21, 2012.

The speaker is Brian Jones a Teacher, Writer and Activist we interviewed during the rally/march. He connects the killing of Trayvon Martin to Michelle Alexander's book, The New Jim Crow and the view of black and brown men as criminals. The results of this criminalization has not only led to the mass incarceration of black men but also the murder of them like what happened with Trayvon Martin.
