The five daily contact
prayers are the main meals for the soul. While a soul may attain some growth and
development by leading a righteous life, and without observing the contact
prayers, this would be like surviving on snacks without regular meals.
We learn from 2:37 that we can establish contact with God by uttering the
specific Arabic words given to us by
God. Sura 1,
The Key, is a mathematically composed combination of sounds that unlocks the
door between us and God:
- The Dawn Prayer must be observed during two
hours before sunrise (11:114, 24:58).
- The Noon Prayer is due when the sun
declines from its highest point at noon (17:78).
- The Afternoon Prayer can be observed
during the 3-4 hours preceding sunset (2:238).
- The Sunset Prayer becomes due after
- The Night Prayer can be observed after the
twilight disappears from the sky (24:58).The Friday noon congregational prayer is an
obligatory duty upon every Submitting man and woman (62:9). Failure
to observe the Friday Prayer is a gross offense.
Each contact prayer is valid if observed anytime
during the period it becomes due until the next prayer becomes due. Once missed,
a given contact prayer is a missed opportunity that cannot be made up; one can
only repent and ask forgiveness. The five prayers consist of 2, 4, 4, 3, and 4
units (Rak'ahs), respectively.
The proof that Salat was already established
through Abraham is found in 8:35, 9:54, 16:123, &
most important duty in Islam (Submission) has been so severely distorted that
the contact prayers (Salat) have become a practice in idolatry for the vast
majority of Muslims. Although the Quran commands that our contact prayers must
be devoted to God alone (20:14; 39:3, 45), today's
Muslims insist on commemorating "Muhammad and his family" and "Abraham and his
family" during their prayers. This renders the prayers null and void (39:65).
The following text, pertaining to the miracles
confirming the contact prayers, is excerpted from the January 1990 issues of the
Submitter's Perspective (the regular and special bonus issues), as written by
Dr. Rashad Khalifa:
