The main objective in compiling this book about the Salah is to emphasise the importance of this ‘Pillar’ of Islam and to acquaint the reader with the rulings concerning this most important activity of a believer. It would be a pity and a great loss if we were not able to derive the full benefit of this spiritual exercise designated as ‘Miraj ul Mumin’ (the ascension of the believer) simply because we are unaware of its basic rulings. Salah undoubtedly deepens a person’s faith in his Lord, develops his spirit and helps to improve his character.
