Toronto Prayer Times for Today:
The Importance of prayer in Islam cannot be understated. It is the first pillar of Islam after the testimony of faith. the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said:
“The first matter that the slave of Allah will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgement is the prayer. If it sound, then the rest of his or her deeds will be sound. If it is bad, the the rest of his or her deeds will be bad.” [Sahih Al-Jami, P. 503]
In the Hereafter, Allah’s forgiveness and pleasure is closely related to the prayers. The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said,
- “Allah has obligated five prayers.
- Whoever excellently performs their ablutions, prays them in their proper times, completes their bows, prostrations and khushu` has a promise from Allah that He will forgive him.
- And whoever does not do that has no promise from Allah. He may either forgive him or punish him.” [Recorded by Malik, Ahmad, Abu Dawud, al-Nasa’I and others. Sahih al-Jami, vol. 1, p. 616.] ]
