Welcome to this fascinating series of The Prayer of Fear (Salat Al-Khawf), which will be in six episodes, with Sheikh Haitham Al-Haddad who will clarify its rulings, etiquettes, conditions and the manner of performing it.
Prayer is the first pillar of Islam that was mentioned by the Prophet (peace be upon him) after the testimony of faith. It was made obligatory upon all the Prophets and for all people.
Buraidah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “That which differentiates us from the disbelievers and hypocrites is our performance of Salah. He who abandons it, becomes a disbeliever.” (At-Tirmidhi)
In this talk, Sheikh Haitham gives a brief introduction to the position of prayer in Islam. Then he goes on explaining the meaning of fear prayer and its purpose.
