Salat Motion 2: Rulings Regarding Prayer; The Qiblah

The Rulings of Prayer: The Qiblah (Direction of Prayer)

The Kaʿba -which is located in Mecca- is the Qiblah of all Muslims, the direction towards which all Muslims must perform their prayers; otherwise their prayer is invalid.

Therefore, one should find the direction of the Qiblah before starting the prayer.

There are four ways to determine the direction of Qiblah:

  1. Trying to determine the direction of Mecca personally.
  2. Following the testimony of two just witnesses or one trusted person who determined the direction of the Qiblah based on sensory indications.
  3. Following the opinion of a trustworthy person who has determined the Qiblah based on scientific methods.
  4. Determining the Qiblah based on the direction of the Miḥrāb  of a mosque, or that of the graves in a Muslim cemetery or in any other way.

However, in the case a Muslim is not able to determine the Qiblah through any of these ways, they should choose one direction and perform their prayer.

Sslat Motion 1: Rulings Regarding Prayer; Obligatory Prayers
Sslat Motion 1: Rulings Regarding Prayer; Obligatory Prayers

Prayer is the way of connecting to our Creator, purifying our heart and cleansing our soul

This precious means of connecting to the Creator has been called the firm pillar of the religion of Islam

And among the different acts of worship, it is the one that is of great importance and every Muslim is obligated to perform it through a series of actions.

Prayer is of such great importance that according to the Islamic narrations, its acceptance by Allah is the prerequisite of the acceptance of all other deeds.

Therefore, it is super important that we as Muslims learn each and every ruling regarding prayers.

Prayers are basically categorized in to two groups:

Obligatory prayers

Recommended prayers

Nafilah (night) prayer, Ghufaylah prayer and Jafar al-Ṭayyār prayer are among the most well known recommended prayers.

Now let’s also have a look at the blessed obligatory prayers which are six in number:

  1. The prayer of the obligatory circumambulation of the the Ka'ba.
  2. The Āyāt prayer which becomes obligatory upon the occurrence of natural phenomena such as eclipse, earth quake,etc.
  3. The Mayyit prayer (Funeral Prayer)
  4. The qada prayers of ones deceased parents (The obligatory prayers that one’s parents missed during their life).
  5. Any Nāfilah prayer [i.e. superarogatory prayer] which has become obligatory due to a related oath, a promise (ʿahd), or a vow (nadhr).
  6. And finally Daily obligatory prayers

We all know that daily prayers are those that are to be performed on a daily basis which are : Fajr Prayer, Dhuhr Prayer, ʻAsr Prayer, Maghrib Prayer and ʻIsha Prayer.
