Description of the Prophets Prayer By Imam Muhammad Nasir Al-Din al-Albani
Prayer is a fundamental act of worship and central to Islam; its importance can’t be emphasized enough. Muslims strive to perfect their prayer for it is indeed a dividing line between faith and disbelief, and will also be the first thing mankind is question about by Allah on the Day of Judgment. Therefore much has been dedicated to the topic of prayer from the vast body of Islamic literature – from its rulings to the finer details of its characteristics etc.
Sifatu Salat al-Nabi is a renowned work of the Imam and Scholar of hadith, Muhammad Nashir al-Din al-Albani (may Allah bestow His Mercy upon him). The original work in Arabic was a unique milstone lending a fresh approach in presenting the topic.
He further asserted his preferred methodology employed in the book, by adopting strict principles of adhering to the authentic Sunnah, and the difficult task he was faced in ensuring that. It has thus developed into a study text, and a valuable primer setting a standard in reviving the method of our prayer - and becoming a means in perfecting our servitude towards Allah in the Prophetic manner.
It is our hope that this new English rendering will ensure an earnest continuation in helpingMuslims who wish to follow the guidance of their Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) in their daily worship. And that the utilisation of this work becomes a catalyst for those who truly love the Prophet (may Allah bestow His Mercy upon him) in fulfilling his command to, "Pray as you have seen me praying."
