Why is Salah/Prayer so Important?

By Muhammadrasul Saaduev : Imam of Central Jum`ah Mosque | Makhachkala | 02 Sept 2011

The Man who Broke the Connection with the Creator is Unreliable.

There is a connection between each of us and the Creator. This is the connection that determines our destiny, our success in this world, our well-being, both in this world and in the Eternal one. The break of this connection will bring chaos into society; man will regress, commit crime and pass the limits set by Allah.

What is the connection and how to find it? It is through Salah, prescribed by the Almighty. If this connection is strong, infallible, the slave is always with his Creator. He will do well both in this world and in the Eternal life. And he will be rescued from adversity and misery in this world and from the punishment on the Judgment Day.

As the great historian of Islam, Bernard Lewis, remarked some years ago at a lecture in Washington, D.C., Sufis, followers of the mystical way in Islam, are "peaceful but not pacifist." That is, Sufis dedicate themselves to personal and collective spiritual cultivation, and seek fruitful and mutually respectful relations with non-Sufi Muslims and members of the other religions. But Sufis also fight to defend themselves and their communities from aggression and oppression.
