The Benefits of Namaz Prayer (Salah) in Islam:

Namaz, Salah, or Prayer is second and most important pillar of Islam that is obligatory on every Muslim above the age of 10. Salah means “worship” and it is an Arabic word. Salah is a wellspring of direct correspondence with Allah Almighty. In addition, it also ceases an individual from bad deeds.

There are five daily prayers that need to perform at their specified times and are as follows;

  • Fajr: should be prayed before sunrise
  • Zuhr: should be prayed after the sun passes its highest point
  • Asr: should be prayed after the late part of the afternoon
  • Maghrib: should be prayed just after sunset
  • Isha: should be prayed between sunset and midnight

Namaz (Salah) have many benefits, some of them are mentioned below:

  • Remembrance of God

As Allah SWT has mentioned in the Quran “Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” Because of this recalling our Lord that we love the most and mentioning His name comforts our troubled souls, extends our chests, and comforts our hearts. The most effective way to recall God is to pray. Salah is the most beautiful and valuable gift that God had given to us.


  • Reminder of Judgement Day and Hereafter

One of the benefit of performing Salah is that it reminds you of the judgement day and hereafter. Individuals who do not keep the judgement day in their minds and do not remember it, they will do anything for their mere benefits. So, there should be something that reminds a person of the judgement day and hereafter. Salah performed intentionally and cautiously helps us to remember God, the hereafter, and the Day of Judgment 5 times a day. As we recall the hereafter and the Day of Judgment, we try to refrain from all evil because we know that we will be held accountable on the day of judgement.


  • Salah Purifies Us from Sins

Salah is the hour of meeting with our creator. As we pray, we realize that we are before our All-powerful creator. In the event that we pondered committing a wrongdoing, we would change our mind any problems by considering of praying and being before God. By this, we would purify our hearts from evil thoughts and feelings.

  • Salah Keeps Us Clean

At the point when we make wudu (ablution), we clean parts of our body that get grimy the most daily. We focus on our body, our clothes, and make sure that we are clean as well as our clothes when we are praying. By making ablution a couple of times day to day, we clean our hands, face, and feet. Thus we gain the habit of keeping ourselves clean.
