Importance of Prayer (Salah) in Jama’at
Jamm’at means to offer prayer (Salah) in congregation. Jamm’at is referred to a group of Muslims who gather in the form to a group to bow before their lord and offer their Salahin jamm’at. At the same time, when Muslims collect to make Salah in which one who is at the front is called the Imam means the one who leads and the rest of the Muslims who are following him are called are muqtadee who follow him and hence, they pray together to call of Azan.There is countless reward for praying Salah and offering it in jamm’at.
Importance of Jamm’at in Hadith:
Imam Muhammad Gazali (Rahmatullahi Alaih) speaks, “Salah was so important to our salafsaliheen [pious predecessors] that if they missed the first takbeer they would mourn for three days and if anyone missed jamm’at then they would mourn for seven days.” (Mukashifatol Quloob)
In the same way, Sayeduna Abdullah bin Umar (Radi Allahu anhu) describes that the Much-loved Prophet (Swall Allahu alaihi wasallam) held,
“Salah with Jamm’at is twenty-seven times greater than salah prayed alone.”
“The fazilat (auspiciousness) of this [jamm’at] is better than ruling over Iraq.” (Mukashifatul Quloob)
Sayeduna Anas (Radi Allahu anhu) narrates that the Beloved Prophet (Swall Allahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever reads Salah with Jamm’at for forty days with the first takbeer *;
two salvations will be written for him: one from hell and one from hypocrisy.”
At another occasion, Sayeduna Abu Hurairah (Radi Allahu anhu) relates that the Much-loved Prophet (Swall Allahu alaihi wasallam) said, “If the people knew what was in the [calling of] Azaan and [being a part of] the first saf [row of jamm’at] then they would not get it without drawing names. So they would draw names [i.e., they would compete for the honor of these two acts]. (Bukhari)
Jamm’at is obligatory for every single sane and matured male who has the capability to implore salah. It is rightly significant for the persons breathing in the locality of the masjid to join the jamm’at.
To travel closer to a masjid or madarsa with the objective of getting Jamm’at is a rightly a praise worthy act. May Allah provide us the taufeeq to retain our Masjids and Madarsas filled, aameen. In circumstance, reserve this in attention when shifting or purchasing a house.
One should not contemplate ‘I can’t make it for Jamm’at, I am besides hectic with university or work and household, this if on or after the Shaitan or our ill-Conscious. If you mark the purpose and exertion, Allah-willing, the destitution will go away.
Point to be noted:
Always stand in the saf (rows) from shoulder to shoulder so that, there is not at all any space left in between. Quran Coaching extend its prayers to everybody that May Allah make all of us a true Muslim and may give us taufeeq to offer Salah in Jamm’at.
