Significance of Prayer
Prayer constantly reminds us of the essence of our creation and makes a direct connection to Allah, who has linked success and happiness with humility in prayer. Praying regularly and praying on time are actions that are very beloved in the eyes of Almighty Allah. These prayers are obligatory and everyone will be questioned about it on Judgement day. Aside from its significance, there are many benefits to praying Salah. Some of the benefits are below:
Praying Salah five times a day makes a man active. Because Salah is just like an exercise for your body and acts as a meditation for the mind. It is a good way to eliminate laziness thus ensuring activeness and physical health.
Prevents from Evil
A person who prays five times a day has a strong connection with the High, Exalted One. So it is impossible for a man with such a strong belief to do or think of something evil.
A person who has a habit of praying Salah regularly and on time, Almighty Allah doesn’t leave him alone and shower His blessings upon His beloved.
The sole purpose of mankind on this earth is to worship Almighty Allah. If one doesn’t fulfill that purpose, his soul will not be satisfied with anything but only by worshipping Allah. And if a person recognizes that purpose and tries to fulfill it, then Salah is a source for nourishment for his soul.
Makes us humble:
Allah doesn’t like pride and arrogance. So we should believe that a person who prays the obligatory prayers becomes humble as he bows down to the will of Almighty Allah.
We as Muslims believe that everything we do, must not anger the Highest, Exalted One so that we might be able to receive his bounties and blessings. We as Muslims must realize that whatever we do in life if Prayer is not our first priority, we’ll always be lost. Because if we’re not fulfilling our only responsibility in life, how can we focus on other things or what will be the use of anything else if we’re not setting our priorities right?
The only thing that is differentiating us from non-Muslims is Salah and if we’re not focusing on that, how will we distinguish them from ourselves?
The importance of Salah can’t be denied and our Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him) also emphasized the significance of Salah by stating that: “Know that among your duties, prayer is foremost”.

Jummah Prayer and Timing:
Jummah is a Holy Day for Muslims. On this day, they take shower, brush their teeth, wear clean or new clothes, cut their hair and nails if necessary, use fragrance and then go for praying Jummah.
The meaning of Jummah is the congregation. On this day, Muslims gather and stand in front of One and Only Lord for worshipping. Jummah Prayer praying on Friday instead of Dhuhr Prayer times. Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran: “O you who believe! When the call is proclaimed for Jummah (Friday prayer), come fast to the remembrance of Allah”.
The importance of Jummah Prayer is recognized by the fact that this day brings blessings for Muslims. The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon Him) said:
“There is an hour on Friday and if a Muslim gets it while offering Salat and asks something from Allah Almighty, then Allah will definitely fulfill his demands and Prophet Muhammad (SAW) pointed out the shortness of that particular time with his hands.” (Bukhari)
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) says the value of prayer in congregation in the mosque rather than individual value and promised spiritual rewards, such as answered prayers and forgiveness for their sins. Participation in Friday prayer, the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him) says, corresponds to a full year of prayer and fasting alone. For Prayer times NY read this
