The devotion of the heart and the sentiments of awe and humility, indeed, are the very soul of the Namaz. The ultimate success and deliverance of believers who offer up such a kind of Namaz is assured. Declares the Quran:

The believers must (eventually) win through-those who humble themselves in their prayers.

Says the Prophet (Peace be upon him), “Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) has made the five daily prayers obligatory.

Whoever did the Wazu properly and offered them up at the right time and carried out the Ruku and Sajda as they ought to be, humbly and reverentially, for him the promise of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) is that he will be pardoned; and whoever did not do so (i.e., did not say his prayers in this manner), for him there is no such promise. Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) will pardon or punish him as He will please.”


When the time for prayers comes we should perform the Wazu carefully, believing that this washing and cleansing was necessary before we presented ourselves before the Lord and worshipped Him. The Almighty, in His benevolence, has invested the Wazu with great auspiciousness. The sins and transgressions of the parts of the body that are washed during it are forgiven because of it. The unholy effects of sins are, so to speak, washed away by the water used in the Wazu. After the Wazu, as we stand up for the Namaz, the predominant thought in our minds should be that we, the sinning and defaulting slaves were going to stand before a Lord and Master from whom nothing was concealed, who knew all about us, the hidden as well as the manifest, and before whom we would have to appear on the Day of Judgment. We should then formulate precisely the intention to offer the particular prayer and raising the hands up to our ears pronounces not only with the tongue but with our hearts, too, the formula.


Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) is great

After it, with arms folded across the chest and a full awareness of the fact of our presence before the Almighty we should recite:

Subhaanaka Allahumma wa bihamdika wa tabara kasmuka wa ta’ala jaddo ka wa laa ilaaha ghairuka.

O Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), with Thy glorification and Thy praise; blessed is Thy name, great is Thy glory, and there is no God except Thee.

Aaoozu Billah-i-Minash - Shaitanir Rajeem: Bismilla hir Rahmaanir Raheem.

I seek refuge in Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) from the wicked Devil and begin with the name of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), the Most Benevolent, the All-Merciful.

Alhamdu lil-laahi rabbil Aalameen, Ar Rahmaanir Raheem, Maaliki yaumid deen, Iyyaaka na’budu wa Iyyaaka nas-ta’een, Ihdinas siraatal mustaqeem, Siraatal ladheena anamta alaihim, ghairil maghdoobi alaihim, wa ladh dhaal leen. Aameen.

Praise be to Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), Lord of the Worlds the Compassionate, Thee alone do we worship, and to Thee alone do we beg for help. Show us the straight path: the path of those whom
