and Allah said "And proclaim the pilgramage among men; they will come to thee on foot and on every kind of camel. Lean on account of Journeys through deep and distant mountain highways" Surah 22 ~ Al Hajj Part 27
Bismillaah arakhmaan nira heem
Asalaamwalaikum wah rahmatulaah wah barakaatuh
My name is Nabihah, I'm Nine years old and my talk is about:
As-Salaah is the second pillar in Islam, because it is the second pillar it becomes more important to pray than to give Zakah, Sawm and Hajj. The other pillars are very important also. Practicing Muslims pray Five times a day facing Makkah from all over the world.
Men and older boys pray in congregation. Women and girls can also join, if they are separate. They can join in if they are of the same mehram without being separate but must be behind the Men and older boys.
Salaah is the second most important act of our Ehmaan and brings us very close to Allah because when you pray it is like talking to Allah fives times every day. It was a command to our beloved prophet Muhammad (saws) to order all Muslims to do Salaah.
On the night of ascension (Miraj or Lailatul Qadir), our prophet ascended the seven heavens and felt the presence of Allah. Allah ordered Prophet Muhammad to ask his followers to pray fifty salaahs a day. On decent Prophet Muhammad met Prophet Moses (Musa Alay Salaam) who asked Prophet Muhammad to return to Allah and ask for fewer prayers as it would not be possible for his followers to carry out Allah's command. Prophet Muhammad went to and fro between Prophet Musa and Allah many times until Allah told Prophet Muhammad to ask his followers to pray five prayers a day with each multiplied ten times in ajr! Making the Five times ten equal to fifty prayers. Now Prophet Muhammad refused to go back to Allah Subhanatallah to ask for a further reduction despite Prophet Moses' (Musa Alay Salaam) insistence. Prophet Muhammad said he was ashamed to go back and ask for more reduction and ever since all Muslims pray Salaah five times a day.
Jazakallah khair and If I have made anything wrong can you please forgive and correct me.
