Salah is obligatory on every Muslim to pray five times a day on time. Importance of praying Salah on time can be understood by these hadith: … The earlier you pray and if you pray on time, Allah will guide you and shall refrain you from sinning. We being a Muslim need to prepare for our akhirah and always do a good deed.
Salat is how Muslims show both their physical and spiritual submission to Allah. Just like the other acts of worship such as Sawm (Fasting), Hajj (Pilgrimage to Makkah), and Zakat (alms-giving), the goal of Salat is to bring the Muslims closer to Allah and also build the character of members of Islamic community.
