SALAH-The second pillar of Islam

The Five Pillars of Faith:
The first pillar of Islam was the testimony of our faith, but dear kids, a Muslim should not stop on these words. The second pillar, the prayer, completes the first pillar and helps us to practice our sincerity and love for Allah ﷻ.
The importance of this pillar of Islam is so huge that it was the only pillar of the 5 pillars that were revealed to our beloved Prophet ﷺ in the Heavens during the famous Night Journey. Allah ﷻ promised our beloved Prophet ﷺ that we will get the reward of 50 prayers for praying just 5 prayers.

A beautiful Hadith for precious minds:
Abu Hurairah (R.A.) narrated that the Prophet Muhammed ﷺ said,
“If a person had a stream outside his door and he bathed in it five times a day, do you think he would have any filth left on him?” The people said, “No filth would remain on him whatsoever.” The Prophet ﷺ then said, “That is like the five daily prayers: Allah wipes away the sins by them.” (Recorded by al-Bukhari and Muslim.)
