Event description


“Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and give zakah will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.” [Al-Qur’an 2:277)

Prayer is a commandment upon all Muslims. It is one of the 5 Pillars of Islam and forms the basis of our Deen. It is essential for all Muslims to perform Salat 5 times a day, and beyond this requisite, there are many other prayers for us to further enhance our faith through our worship and obedience to Allah the Almighty.

Are we able to perform our prayers adequately and sufficiently? Do we know the inner details of how to perform Wudhu, Salah and Ghusl? How do we perform the Forgetfulness Prostration (Sujud Sahwi)? What are the pre-requisites and practices for shortening or joining prayers for travel or rain?

These are just some of the topics and aspects surrounding prayers that we need to know and understand to perform our prayers effectively and accurately.

This course will discuss these topics in greater detail and further enhance the beauty of your prayers to Allah The Almighty, Insha’Allah. It is suitable for those who wants to learn how to perform the five obligatory Salah/Prayer, and it is also a recommended refresher course for Muslim parents and educators living in contemporary Singapore.

The Essentials of Prayers course consists of 6 lessons which covers the Theory and Practical aspects of Ablution/Wudhu' and Salah. Course Notes and a Prayer Book will be provided.
