Status of Solah (MM 2/12/07)

Munyatul Musolli 2 Dec 2007

Solah could prevent you from:

  • being dazed and shaken by misery
  • committing evil and sin
Ther'e 3 status of solah:
  1. Syari'ah: You observe the "seen" rules only
  2. Tariqah: You observe the rules + Allah is present in your heart
  3. Haqiqah: You do both (1) and (2), but there's a whole lot more Allah in your heart
Once you're at (3), you achieve Ma'rifah. (You've obtained knowledge of Allah).

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.

Wallahu a'lam
