Salah, the second pillar of Islam, is a daily obligation upon all Muslims above baligh (mature) age and is the act of offering prayers to Allah SWT.
Prophet Muhammad said :
“Between Islam and polytheism and unbelief is the abandonment of salah (prayer).“ (Muslim, Iman 134; Abu Dawud, Sunnah 15)
“The agreement between munafiqs (hypocrites) and us is prayers.” (Tirmidhi, Iman 9; Nasai, Salah 8)
Islamic Center of Vernon offers following daily Prayers as follows:
- Fajr – This is performed before sunrise
- Zohr – This is performed midday
- Asr – This is performed between Zohr and sunset
- Maghrib – This is performed just after sunset
- Isha – This is performed between Maghrib and midnight
These are the obligatory prayers only which are offered at Islamic Center of Vernon.
There is special importance dedicated to the Friday prayer, which is also known as Jumaa Namaz. This prayer is performed in congregation at the Islamic Center of Vernon and Khutba starts @ 1:00 PM Every Friday.
The principle of salah is to ensure Muslims maintain their faith and devotion to Allah SWT, to increase taqwa (closeness to Allah SWT) and to remain conscious of the importance of faith and submission to their Creator.
