Nay, seek help with patience and perseverance and prayer: It is indeed hard, except to those who bring a lowly spirit. Who bear in mind the certainty that they are to meet their Lord, and that they are to return to Him.
(Holy Quran Ch. 2 Ver. 45-46)
Found a good video that gives a simple explanation of prayer, just click on the video bellow, plus I copy-pasted the information bellow the Youtube video here also. I love how she explains it and puts good pictures to help her tell the stories . Plus… there is a short story of the personal experience of Ibnu Sina ^_^ (click the the words ‘Ibnu Sina’ to understand why I’m smiling).
When a person is introduced to Islam and hears that muslims pray five times a day he/she find it shocking and hard to believe! How can a person pray 5 times a day! That is too much! But it’s easy for you to understand the idea of staying late at work to finish a project, to waking up at dawn to head out on a trip with the family, to spend hours studying for a very important exam! To spend so much time just trying to please the one you love!
How come that is easy for you to understand, but the idea of praying to God 5 times a day, each prayer taking about 5 minutes, to thank him for the blessings He gave you, and to remind yourself of the purpose of life..is so hard to understand?!
Do not stray away from prayer
Do not let this world fool you
There will come a day when it’s too late
So be careful of what you do
It is not prayer that interrupts life
But life that interrupts our prayer
Wake up and see the truth
Before you’re buried under the earth’s layer
The following video will explain who muslims pray to? And How can a muslim pray 5 times a day?
