Salah/Namaz Mentioned In The Holy Quran

Assalam Alaykum Brother and sisters,

Actually this Article is published for 2 reasons,

1) To Inform muslims about gain and loss for prayering and not praying.

2) To distroy a claim of  from Christian Islam hater in one of our page,by making such claims he just showed how much they know about islam.I listend and talked with few ex-muslims ,they always raise this point too.

You can view the claim done by christian brother by clicking here .

so,Its totally fake claim that salah is not mentioned in Holy Quran.

Salah is based on  Quran and Hadith.

hope you find it useful too..

May Allah make this Article useful for readers,

1) Establishing  Salah Develops Taqwa (Fear and Awareness of Allah)

ذَ‌ٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِلْمُتَّقِينَ الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنْفِقُونَ
“This is the Book in which there is no doubt, a guidance for those who have Taqwa; who believe in the unseen, and who establish Salah, and spend out of what we have provided for them” (Surah Baqarah 2: 2-3)

2) Salah Is the Sign of a Believer.

وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتُ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ ۚ يَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَيُطِيعُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۚ أُولَـٰئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ اللَّهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

“The believers, men and women, are protecting friends of one another; they enjoin good and forbid evil, and they establish Salah, and give Zakah, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them, and surely, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” (Surah Tawba 9: 71)

3) Establishing Salah Leads to Allah’s Eternal Blessings.

فَمَا أُوتِيتُمْ مِنْ شَيْءٍ فَمَتَاعُ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ۖ وَمَا عِنْدَ اللَّهِ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَىٰ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ وَالَّذِينَ يَجْتَنِبُونَ كَبَائِرَ الْإِثْمِ وَالْفَوَاحِشَ وَإِذَا مَا غَضِبُوا هُمْ يَغْفِرُونَ وَالَّذِينَ اسْتَجَابُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَأَمْرُهُمْ شُورَىٰ بَيْنَهُمْ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنْفِقُونَ
“So whatever you have been given is but (a passing) enjoyment for this worldly life, but that which is with Allah is better and more lasting for those who believe and put their trust in their Lord. And those who avoid the great sins and lewdness, and when they are angry, they forgive. And those who answer the Call of their Lord, and perform the Salah, and who conduct their affairs by mutual consultation, and who spend of what We have bestowed on them.” (Surah Ash-Shura 42:36-38)

4) Those Who Pray Shall Have Nothing to Fear on the Day of Judgment.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ لَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

“Truly, those who believe and do righteous deeds, and perform Salah, and give Zakah, they will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (Surah Baqarah 2:277)

5) Remain in Allah’s remembrance after prayer.

فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُمُ الصَّلَاةَ فَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِكُمْ ۚ فَإِذَا اطْمَأْنَنْتُمْ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ ۚ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ كِتَابًا مَوْقُوتًا
“When have finished performing the Salah, remember Allah standing, sitting, and reclining, but when you are free from danger, perform the Salah. Surely, Salah is enjoined on the believers at fixed times.” (Surah Nisaa 4:103)

6) Command to Pray with Congregation.

وَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ وَارْكَعُوا مَعَ الرَّاكِعِينَ

“And establish Salah and give Zakah, and bow down (in worship) along with those who bow down (in worship)” (Surah Baqarah 2:43)

7. Special Command Regarding Punctuality of Prayer.

حَافِظُوا عَلَى الصَّلَوَاتِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْوُسْطَىٰ وَقُومُوا لِلَّهِ قَانِتِينَ

“Guard strictly the Salah, especially the middle Salah. And stand before Allah with obedience.” (Surah Baqarah 2:238)

8. Allah’s Help Comes Through Salah.

وَاسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ ۚ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلَّا عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ

“Seek help through patience and Salah; truly it is extremely difficult except for the humble true believers.” (Surah Baqarah 2:45)

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ

“Oh you who believe! Seek help through patience and Salah. Truly, Allah is with those who are patient.” (Surah Baqarah 2:153)

9.) Special Emphasis on Friday Prayer.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا نُودِيَ لِلصَّلَاةِ مِنْ يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ فَاسْعَوْا إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَذَرُوا الْبَيْعَ ۚ ذَ‌ٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ فَإِذَا قُضِيَتِ الصَّلَاةُ فَانْتَشِرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَابْتَغُوا مِنْ فَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

“Oh you who believe! When the call is made for the Salah on Friday, come to the remembrance of Allah, and leave off business. That is better for you, if you only knew! And when the Salah has ended, you may disperse through the land, and seek the Bounty of Allah, and remember Allah much so that you may be successful.” (Surah Jumuah 62:09-10)

10) Shaytaan Tries His Best in Finding Ways to Take You Away from Salah

إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَنْ يُوقِعَ بَيْنَكُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاءَ فِي الْخَمْرِ وَالْمَيْسِرِ وَيَصُدَّكُمْ عَنْ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَعَنِ الصَّلَاةِ ۖ فَهَلْ أَنْتُمْ مُنْتَهُونَ

“Shaytaan desires only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from Salah. So will you then not abstain (from these evils)?” (Surah Maeda 5:91)

11) Prayer Protects Against Evils.

اتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ ۖ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ تَنْهَىٰ عَنِ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنْكَرِ ۗ وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ
“Recite that which has been revealed to you of the Book, and perform Salah. Verily, Salah prevents from lewdness and evils. And indeed, the remembrance of Allah (by you) is greatest. And  Allah knows what you do.” (Surah Ankaboot 29:45)

12)Friendship Should Be with Those Who Pray.

إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ

“Indeed, your protecting friend (Wali) is none other than Allah, His Messenger, and the Believers who establish Salah, and give Zakaat, and bow down (in prayer). (Surah Maeda 5: 55)

13) Allah’s Special Order to Women.

وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ الْأُولَىٰ ۖ وَأَقِمْنَ الصَّلَاةَ وَآتِينَ الزَّكَاةَ وَأَطِعْنَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۚ إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا
“And stay in your houses, and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance, and perform Salah, and give Zakah, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah wishes only to remove uncleanness from you, Oh people of the House, and to purify you with a thorough purification.” (Surah Ahzaab 33:33)

14) Hypocrites Are Lazy in Salah.

إِنَّ الْمُنَافِقِينَ يُخَادِعُونَ اللَّهَ وَهُوَ خَادِعُهُمْ وَإِذَا قَامُوا إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ قَامُوا كُسَالَىٰ يُرَاءُونَ النَّاسَ وَلَا يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا
“Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He who deceives them; When they stand up for Salah, they stand with laziness, only to be seen by men; and they do not remember Allah but a little.” (Surah Nisaa 4:142)

15) Laziness in Salah Leads to Rejection of Sadaqah.

وَمَا مَنَعَهُمْ أَنْ تُقْبَلَ مِنْهُمْ نَفَقَاتُهُمْ إِلَّا أَنَّهُمْ كَفَرُوا بِاللَّهِ وَبِرَسُولِهِ وَلَا يَأْتُونَ الصَّلَاةَ إِلَّا وَهُمْ كُسَالَىٰ وَلَا يُنْفِقُونَ إِلَّا وَهُمْ كَارِهُونَ

“And nothing prevents their Sadaqah from being accepted from them, except that they disbelieve in Allah and in His Messenger, and that they do not come to Salah except in a lazy manner, and that they do not give Sadaqah except unwillingly.” (Surah Tawbah 9:54)

16) Leaving Salah Leads to Shirk.

مُنِيبِينَ إِلَيْهِ وَاتَّقُوهُ وَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَلَا تَكُونُوا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ

“(And remain always) turning to Him (only), and be fearful and dutiful towards Him, and perform Salah and be not of those who commit Shirk.” (Surah Room 30: 31)

17) Previous Nations Were corrupted when Salah Was Left.

فَخَلَفَ مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ خَلْفٌ أَضَاعُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَاتَّبَعُوا الشَّهَوَاتِ ۖ فَسَوْفَ يَلْقَوْنَ غَيًّا
“Then, there came after them a generation who gave up Salah and followed lusts; so they will be thrown in Hell.” (Surah Maryam 19: 59)

may i know in which surah about protection of salah is mentioned


protection of salah,
im sorry,i didn;t get…


good Information brother……

May Allah bless you the reward……….



then what about christ ?
They even make human into god, even make 1 human into three definition
then what about buddhist ?
They even create they own god because their god is their prophet in the past

oh shut up if you dont know anything about islam, how dare you said those bad useless thing..gerr


salah means not namaz(prayer), it means laws created by god to human kind, quran is full of laws (rules and regulations)created by allah to human beings. in some surah allah said , plants, animals and other non living things also make salah, it means they dont pray namaz, they accept and follow the laws wht allah had gaven to them, like these we have to follow the rules and regulations given by allah, islam is too easy for us, but unfortunately hadiths like bukhari, muslim , they make it too hard , i request every one to follow only quran and practically apply in ur life, sure allah guarantee the peace and harmony , inshallah.


Absolutely correct only wish all brothers would use their minds and seriously study what the actual message from Allah. The brother showed some very good examples in the above surahs but failed to see the correct meaning.


Obviously what you have said contradicts what you are trying to imply. If Salah means all the laws then Namaz is also a part of those laws. Thus Namaz is one of the Salah of MANY others that you must obey and follow. However, all sahaba and tabieen including the Khalifa Rashideen which includes the 4th Khalifa as well mandated salah/Namaz as an integral part and made special amends to ensure that muslims could perform so without hindrance. I agree that Islam is easy but when we create doubts because we feel we are more learned than the religious leaders of centuries ago it is only than that we make it complex for the believers of today.


Islam is not a religion, but a cult and Muhammad was its lone, self proclaimed prophet, and Allah was his Demonic Illusion. Muhammad was a liar, pedophilia, mass murderer etc, if you find these allegation shocking. See the evidence yourself here:- [Link removed]
I bet if you prove me wrong, I m ready to remove my site..


Rahul :

it WAS shocking when i read first time…now i know how low character thinking you people have…
and don;t make false claim…i know you didn;t created website to remove it… deceive ur brother.s..

and find out,ur many lies are already busted here…!


Well said mate,

I cannot understand why anyone would follow mad muhammad (he was pedophile, murderer rapist, sexual preditor, bigamist etc etc.).
But then again if someone is brainwashed from birth, what chance do they have to see the real truth.
Mate, muslims will never accept the facts, they just make exuses for their cult., without any backup proof.


Aldo, you are the child of Satan, no doubt when you die definetly you are going to hell, Christians are barking dogs, &
barking dogs cant do anything


talk to my hand!
So prove me who are you following now?
Died jesus?

Geez, you must be crazy


no need to thinking regarding Muslim or Islam cause your brain doesn’t exist. Just check with your brothers that what people find from “Holy Quran”
And you don’t Know Prophet Mohammed that’s why you comments this “May Allah Forgive You”


I have a brain, that is why I realised a long time ago that religion is a load of crap, which is followed only by people who are brainwashed by the imams & priests, parents etc.
I do not need allah’s forgiveness because no one has ever proven to me that allah exists.
If you can I would really welcome any proof, of his existance.


@aldo: have u ever thot of how the earth, universe stars, all are made. do u think its all d creation of human being, or our ancestors. whom do u think is controlling the planets, stars, and all other lifeless things, without making any harm to human or other living things? is it human itself? do u think so? then i’ll tell, a human being cant even control his car on a road clearly, so how he is gonna control the universe. he cannot control his own family, then how he is gonna control the world human being or other living things.. have u heard the saying “An Idle Brain is the Devil’s Workshop”. that is wot u have. an idle brain. u dont know how to use it, u only know how to misuse it. I’m a muslim, and my culture is of ISLAM. And my Prophet never did any thing wrong. And that too have evidences. if u can prove it either, then u can prove it on the time of ending day. surely we all human being will meet there.

That you may warn a people whose forefathers were not warned, so they are unaware.(Holy Qur’an 36:6)

Already the word has come into effect upon most of them, so they do not believe.(Holy Qur’an 36:7)

Indeed, We have put shackles on their necks, and they are to their chins, so they are with heads [kept] aloft.(Holy Qur’an 36:8)

And We have put before them a barrier and behind them a barrier and covered them, so they do not see.(Holy Qur’an 36:9)

And it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them – they will not believe.(Holy Qur’an 36:10)

You can only warn one who follows the message and fears the Most Merciful unseen. So give him good tidings of forgiveness and noble reward.(Holy Qur’an 36:11)

And when it is said to them, “Spend from that which Allah has provided for you,” those who disbelieve say to those who believe, “Should we feed one whom, if Allah had willed, He would have fed? You are not but in clear error.” (Holy Qur’an 36:47).

may the almighty forgive you.


hello Aldo, as I respect you as a human being, similarly you should also respect all teachers and great personalities of other religions.

If you dont like any personality or leader, dont abuse or use bad words for them. If you do, it will show your thinking and attitude towards mankind. so any bad words spoken or written in this universe for special personalities are recorded, which may let you down at any stage of life or during transfer !!.

The “person” you are abusing , taught us “never disgrace or devalue other’s religion, respect always, and represent your religion in a positive manner”

good one


Jazaakallahu khairan for the article. Keep it up.


Jazaak Allaah Khairan!

Allah (SWT) has said in the Noble Qur’an: “I have not created the jinn and humankind for any other purpose except that they should worship Me.” (Noble Qur’an 51:56)

It is clearly mentioned the purpose of creation human being not other than but to worship of Allah Almighty.


Mashallah, These are excellent references of Salaat in the Holy Quran. Undoubtedly, Salaah is an integral part of Islam.
I just have one issue I want to raise out. It is regarding the manner in which the comment raised by a non-muslim was answered. The comment of this person, which in turn generated the above article, was answered with harsh words calling him idoit, ignorant, etc. This is not the way one preaches Islam to people. The beauty of Islam is in its truthfullness and clarity. There is nothing in Islam that is to be defended or be offended about.
One of our purpose as Muslims in this world is to spread the word of Allah. To all people, ignorant or otherwise. And that should be done in the best possible manner as it was done by our beloved prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He is the best of us. And he too was shouted at, tormented at, laughed at, jeered at, but Alhamdulillah, he never resorted to degrading the other person, whosoever he may be.
May Allah help us in spreading Islam throughout His world and bring guidance and enlightenment to all it may reach. Ameen.


Jazakallah Khair! I had also heard a hadith regarding the importance of the middle prayer (asr). Could you also publish an article on that? As-salamu alaykum


InshahAllah….. brother..I will do …

how ever here another salah related post…its hadith…Salah is Gift from Allah swt to mankind.


Mashalllah, Nice Article brother.
May Allah reward you with GOOD, Ameen
