The Benefits of Prayer

Learn about sholat and the benefits of it.

"O you who believe!
Seek help in patience and prayer.
Truly! Allah is with the patient."

[surah al Baqarah; 2:153-154]

And I created not the Jinn and mankind
except that they should worship Me"
[51: 56]

"Verily, the prayer keeps one
from the great sins and evil deeds"
[al Ankabut 45]

18 Benefits of Prayers:

1. Prayer is something that causes one to receive sustenance.

2. It is something that safeguards one's physical health.

3. It keeps away harmful things.

4. It casts away illnesses.

5. It strengthens the heart.

6. It brightens one's countenance.

7. It delights the soul.

8. It gets rid of laziness.

9. It makes the limbs active.

10.It increases one's physical strength.

11.It expands the chest (making one at ease and giving him insight).

12.It is nourishment for the soul.

13.It illuminates the heart.

14.It safeguards one's blessings.

15.It repels catastrophes.

16.It brings on blessings.

17.It keeps away the Shaytaan (the Devil).

18.It draws one close to Ar-Rahmaan (Allaah, the Most Merciful).

And overall it has an amazing effect on the health of the body and heart, and in strengthening them and expelling harmful pollutants from them. No two people have been afflicted with any disability, disease, or other calamity, except that the portion of the one who prays is less and his outcome is cleaner.

Also, prayer has an amazing effect on the evils of the dunyaa (the worldly life) and how it repels them, especially when the prayer is performed properly and completely, inwardly and outwardly. Nothing keeps the evils of the dunyaa at bay and brings on the benefits of it like prayer.

The reason behind this is that prayer is one's connection to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic.
