Dear Brothers and Sisters, Salah is one of the most important pillars of Islam, falling only behind the Declaration of Faith, the Shahadah. It is a cornerstone of our religious beliefs, and a great blessing for us all. Some may view our prayer obligations as more of a burden than a reward, but it is quite the opposite. The supplications in our prayers rigorously remind us of the oneness of Allah (swt); it also ingrains the concepts of life and death, mercy and punishment and the ultimate journey through life in the hereafter.
Our salah also serves as a gentle reminder that this life is only temporary and is used as a tool to keep us away from committing sins over and again. It brings light to our hearts and minds and cleanses our souls. It truly is a blessing, and any true Muslim will tell you – offering Salah is only as hard as you make it. If there is a will, there is a way in sha Allah and even in this regard, Allah (swt) is the most understanding, the most merciful if one cannot offer their prayer in a timely manner.
Haji Hamith worked to put this salah book together for our Cham/Khmer Muslim brothers and sisters so that we may all learn how to offer salah properly. Please enjoy reading the book and let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We ask Allah (swt) to forgive us for any omissions or mistakes we may have made.
