Certain Major Features of Islam

Islam,Spiritual,Non-Profit Organizations
What is Islam? First of all it is indeed necessary to give a brief account of Islam. Islam literally means submission to Allah alone. One who completely submits to Allah and the Divine injunctions is a Muslim. Islam is a very wide term and covers the entire universe and religion of all such things which do not even possess life, will and discretion is Islam. Some fundamental Elements of Islam are discussed below: As the outset come ‘Wudu’. We must bear in first that without Wudu no prayer is acceptable to Allah. Wudu (ablution) is indispensable for every prayer and recitation of the Holy Quran. So, we have to know How to Perform Wudu properly as it is a major requirement.

Method of Performing Wudu: While making ablution one should sit on some raised place facing Kaba, reciting Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem (In the name of Allah, the most Merciful and most Compassionate), first of all both the hands should be washed up to wrists thrice. Then clean and rinse the inner mouth three times and rub the teeth with miswak (tooth-stick). One should gargle properly. We have to bear in mind that while fasting gargle is not permitted. Then inner part of the nose should be washed and cleaned by pushing water up to the soft bone in both the nostrils by left hand. But while fasting water should not be pushed deep into the nose.

Then, wash the face three times wetting the forehead, the forehead from beneath the hair of the head to the lower portion of the ears. No portion of the face should remain dry.

Then, both the arms should be washed up to and including the elbows three times each beginning from the right arm. Pass fingers one hand between the fingers of the other hand. If wearing a ring, it should be moved freely to allow the water to pass under it.

Then, perform Masah, that is wet hands should be passed all over the head and the first fingers of both the hands should be moved in the right and left ears and in the same operations thumbs should be passed around the ears. Then, pass the backs of the hands over the hind part of the neck only. Hands should not be passed on the fore-neck (throat) as it is prohibited.

Then, wash the feet beginning with the right foot up to and including the ankles three times each. The little finger of the left hand should be passed between the fingers of both the feet beginning from the little finger of the right foot and ending with little finger of the left foot. This is the method of performing Wudu as prescribed by Sunnah tradition. Thus we have learnt How to Perform Wudu according to Sunnah Tradition.

Salah Prayer Guide: Allah has stated in the Quran, “I have created Jin and Insan mainly for my Ibadah”. So it is essential for every Muslim to know how to pray. It should be noted that before starting any prayer we must perform Wudu (ablution) which is obligatory. No prayer is acceptable to Allah without Wudu.

Now we shall give a brief account of how to Perform Salah guide. Salah is the second pillar of Islam and it is one of the most obligatory duties of all Muslims. The holy Quran says, “Those believe and do deeds of righteousness and establish regular prayer and give Zakat, will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve”. (2:277). Allah also stated, “Verily, I am Allah: There is no god but I, so serve me (only), and establish regular prayer for my remembrance”. (20: 14). Therefore, we have to perform salah (prayer), five times a day such as Fazar, Zuhor, Asor, Magrib and Eisha as it is obligatory for all Muslims. And of course, we have to perform salah as our prophet performed. Hazrat Umar says, “Prayer will bring a man half way to God and fasting to the door of His palace”. Thus in light of the above facts we have come to realize the significance of Salah. Besides those prayers which are mentioned above Salat-ul-Juma , Friday obligatory prayer. Thus we have come to know certain Salah Prayer Guide which we have to follow with meticulous care.

Ninety Nine Names of Allah: We must give special importance in practicing 99 names of Allah towards achieving His satisfaction as it is of paramount importance. We have to practice 99 Names of Allah at every breath. And Allah loves those who love Allah at every moment. Dhikir (remembrance) is the means by which human ‘Qalb’ (souls) is purified. And ‘Qalb” is the essence whilst it is perfect; everything is perfect and whilst it is spoiled; everything is spoiled. Many references are there in the holy Quran and the Haditch concerning Qalb. It should be noted that our Q’alb’ is the key which can only be purified by remembering the names of Allah. Remember Allah as much as possible day and night. Most saints attained spiritual power by means of practicing those 99 Names of Allah namely, Saint Abdul Qadir Zilani of Iraq and Hazrat Shahjalal of Sylhet, Bangladesh, Khaja Moin Uddin Chishti and so on. In fact, there hundreds of saints all over the world who obtained spiritual power by means of practicing 99 Names of Allah. It develops our Qalb and help us attain nearness to Allah.
