  • Why pray in Arabic?
    by: Ahmed H. Sheriff

    The question some times is asked as to why should a Muslim pray only in Arabic language and not his mother tongue.

    It may first seem logical that every Muslim should pray through his own mother language, so that he may understand what he say; but a little more thinking and study, we shall find that there are strong arguments in favour of only one common language and that also Arabic.

  • Why Prostrate on Karbala's Turba
    by: Yasin T. Al-Jibouri

    The reason why Shi`as prostrate on the turbah is based on two sound premises hinging upon two issues:

    First: It is commendable for one who prays to use a pure soil he is sure to be clean regardless of where he takes it from; there is no preference nor any distinction of one soil over another in as far as prostrating upon it is concerned. This is only an indication that the person offering his prayers demonstrates concern about the cleanliness of his body and clothes, and about the place where he offers his prayers.

  • Sala Ni Nguzo Ya Dini
    by: Mustafa Ranjbar Shiraz

    Sala ni nguzo kubwa ya dini. Mtukufu Mtume (s.a.w.) amesema: "Sala ni nguzo ya dini, mwenye kuivunja ameivunja dini, na mwenye kuisimamisha ameisimamisha dini." Mtukufu Mtume ameongeza: "Kila kitu kina uso, na uso wa Uislamu ni sala. Mwenye kuacha kusali ameuchafua uso wa dini." Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) amemnukuu Mtukufu Mtume (s.a.w.) akisema: "Kitu cha kwanza atakachohesabiwa muumini (Siku ya Kiyama) ni Sala. Ikikubaliwa yatakubaliwa matendo mengine, na ikikataliwa yatakataliwa matendo mengine pia."
