Salah Dictionary



thefinalmessage|THE FRIDAY NOTE

The meaning of what we say in our Salah (Prayers);
When we pray we should aim to achieve ultimate concentration and respect as we are engaged in a conversation with our Almighty Creator. One of the best methods of showing this respect to Allah is to understand what it is we say when we are praying to Him.
