Meaning of Salah (Prayers)

Posted on March 28, 2014


As-Salah:  In the Arabic language it means du’aa’ (Invocation).

As-Salah:  Islamically it means to worship Allaah through certain known and prescribed sayings and actions starting with Takbeer (saying Allaahu Akbar Allaah is the Greater), and ending with Tasleem (saying: as-salaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatul-lahi wabarakaatuh may Allaah’s Peace, Mercy, and Blessings be upon you).
