Welcome to a new episode of this fascinating talk entitled “Prayer: Key to Success” wherein Sheikh Mufti Menk continues his speech about the second pillar of Islam, that is of prayer.
He begins his talk by shedding some light on those who are enabled to preserve and stay steadfast on their prayer. Almighty Allah says:
hose who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they are maintaining their prayers. (Al-An`am 6:92)
According to this verse, only those who believe in Allah, His Messenger, the Last Day, and His Scriptures can maintain their prayer regularly.
Second, any disbeliever who declares the testimony of faith and offers the obligatory prayer, he/she becomes our brother/sister in Islam. This is due to Allah’s saying:
But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (At-Tawbah 9:5)
Third, one should seek sustenance and help through establishing prayer and patience and this matter is absolutely easy for those who have humbleness for the sake of Allah. The Almighty Allah says:
And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah]. (Al-Baqarah 2:45)
After that, Sheikh Mufti explains an important point which is offering the nafl prayers in one’s house as this was the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
