Beginning with the definition of the term Prayer. It is also known as Namaz. It is a fulfillment of a worship that is offered to Allah.

History of Namaz/Salah:

Before the time of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H), there was no such obligation of prayer nor was it introduced.

The duty for the obligation of performing a prayer was granted as a gift to the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) for his Ummah on the visit to Allah Almighty.

Allah granted the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) with the gift of fifty prayers. However, many people said that they were too much for them and asked the Prophet (P.B.U.H) to request Allah to reduce the number of prayers.

In another hadith reported by Hz. Abu Umama (ra), the Prophet states the following: “There is nothing superior to a person who is given by Allah the opportunity to perform a two-rak'ah prayer giving. As he is busy with praying, goodness and good deeds are poured onto him.” (Musnad Ahmad)

The following is reported from Jabir Ibn Abdullah (r.a): The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Between faith and unbelief is abandoning the prayer.” (Muslim, Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Musnad)

The following is reported from Jabir Ibn Abdullah (r.a): The Prophet (pbuh) said: “The key to Paradise is prayer; the key to prayer is wudu (ablution).” (Musnad Ahmad)

Ultimately, five prayers were finalized as the obligatory prayers. They include;

  • Fajr
  • Dhuhr
  • Asr
  • Mughrib
  • Isha
This is not all. There are other prayers like Tahajud, Ishraq, Chaasht and Salat ul Awabein which can be offered with free will to satisfy Allah and to earn good deeds along with a higher place in Jannah.

More About Prayer:

Prayer is one of the pillars of Islam. It has a lot of significance as it is also mentioned in the Holy Quran. It is said that the first question about which man will be asked after his death will be about the performance of the five obligatory prayers.

Apart from the five obligatory prayers, there are also other prayers that can be performed but they are not compulsory. However, in NYC, only the compulsory prayers are offered in congregation.

Preparation of Prayer Time in NYC:

The majority of Muslims offers the five prayers in the mosque in congregation. This is because of the encouragement provided to the Muslims by the government who had provided them with a facility of freedom and security.

The government also provides funds to the mosques even though the population of Muslims is about 3% only.

The Muslims also have the freedom to live their life according to their religion as there are no restrictions upon the way one likes to live.

Moreover, if someone wants to offer other prayers, then he is allowed to enter the mosque. During morning and night people have the opportunity to do Ibadat until they want. In Ramadan, rooms are provided to those who want to sit on Itekaf.
