Munyatul Musolli October 2007

This book was written in 1827 by the great Syaikh in Makkah. More like a beginner's manual on how to perform solah according to the Syafi'e mazhab. We in the Sout-East Asia still have high regard to it.


I start this risalah in the name of God the Beneficient, the Merciful towards his faithful servants in the Hereafter.

All praise to Allah, the God of the worlds, who made the 5 daily solahs (prayers) a path for those who fear him. And who made in the solah a refreshment/cool for the eyes (heart?) of Nabi Muhammad (saw). And who made the solah as one of the pillars of Islam.

...And mercy and peace upon our Nabi Muhammad (saw) the Messenger of God of the Worlds. Muhammad (saw) is also the intecessor to the sinners, at the day of Rising. And mercy and peace also upon his family members and companions and upon those who follow him...Mercy and peace upon them all until the day of Rising

  • Solah is a pillar to our religion
  • Priority of solah is only preceded by the "kalimah syahadah"
  • Solah to religion is like a head to a body. Religion within a person is dead without solah.

Wallahu a'lam.
