Elements of Solah (MM 9/12/07)

Munyatul Musolli 9 Dec 2007

Interesting analogy from the Syaikh about solah to human body:

  • The preconditions (sah or batal) to solah is like the soul to a human body
  • The rukuns to solah is like the head
  • The sunnah ab'ad is like the the limbs
  • The sunnah hai-ahs are like the hair
A body won't look nice if you don't hair in certain places (where you should have). So you don't want to miss any of the above in solah.

While perform the physical movements to establish the solah, we shouldn't neglect the "unseen" aspects of it:
  • Khusyu's
  • Presence of heart
  • Ikhlas (sincerity)
  • Tazallul (humble)
  • Know the meaning of what being recited

Wallahu a'lam
