Munyatul Musolli 2 Dec 2007
Solah could prevent you from:
- being dazed and shaken by misery
- committing evil and sin
- Syari'ah: You observe the "seen" rules only
- Tariqah: You observe the rules + Allah is present in your heart
- Haqiqah: You do both (1) and (2), but there's a whole lot more Allah in your heart
How to perform solah? Rasulullah (saw) said:
Perform solah like how you see me perform it
How? People didn't have camcorder back then.
Answer: We follow the ulamas (Allah be pleased with them) before us, and what they've written in their kitabs.
