  5. 5. Observe ablution: wash face, hands to elbow, toes to ankle ,wet hair n ear..areas exposed is cleaned, water has a soothing effect ,increases blood circulation. What is said in the Muslim Prayer? (this a simple understanding for non Muslims) 1.Makeing Intention to Pray.(Mark14:38, Luke11:1 learn to pray) 2.Raising hands(in submission)-say GOD is the Greatest! Atharva Veda 20:58:3 Psalm 63:4, 48:1, 147:5, 35:27 3.Standing- (Humble posture*)- There is no god but You. Rigveda Book no. VI, Hymn 45, verse 16 I seek GOD'S shelter from Satan. In the Name of GOD , (Ezr.5:1; Dan.9:9 Rigveda 8:1:1, Psalm148:8 The Most Compassionate ; Te Most Merciful. Praise be to GOD , Lord of the WorldsPsalms25:6 Rigveda 5:81:1, Psalms90:2,10:16 04
  6. 6. The Most Compassionate; The Most Merciful! Master of the Day for Judgment! You alone do we worship andPsalms50:6 You alone do we call on for help. Guide us alongPsalms30:8 the Straight Path , The Path of those whom You havePsalm27:11 favored , Not the Path of those who earned Your anger,Deut 8:6 nor of those who went astray .(plus a fewPsalm 119:21. Amen additional verses) *This is a posture generally accepted when listening to somebody extremely high, and also when speaking with eyes to the ground. Muslims when they say these Praises and request they are supposed to have a pause after every statement, as we are told the All Mighty replies his humble slave 4. Bent* - Gloried is my Lord, the Great. Oh God forgive me(saying this you come up) *(2 Chron7:3) 4A. Standing-GOD listens to those who praise Him.. 5&7.Prostrate*- Our Lord, praise be for You only Psalms9:1 (placing the forehead on the ground is done twice per standing and every time you come to sitting position say GOD is the Greatest) *Gen13:3, Num20:6, Jos7:6,5:14, Ez19:8,Sam20:41,Mar26:39,2Chro7:3,Rev7:11,Ju13:20 05
  7. 7. nd 6_9. Sitting- 2 Sitting - All our oral, physical and monetary ways of worship are only for GOD. Peace, mercy and blessing of GOD be on you, O Prophet. May peace be upon us and on the devout servants of GOD. I testify that there is no god but GOD and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and(Deut6:4) messenger.** Final Sitting-( after saying above this is additional) O GOD , send Your mercy on Muhammad and his posterity as you sent Your mercy on Abraham and his posterity. You are the Most Praised, the Mos Glorious . O GOD, send Your Blessings on(Luke2:14) Muhammad and his posterity as you sent Your blessings on Abraham and his posterity. You are the Most Praised, the Most Glorious. Our Lord, grant us the good in this world and that of the Hereafter and save us from the torture of Hell 10-11.Greet -.Peace and Mercy of GOD be on you. Peace and Mercy of GOD be on you. Note Ablution: Sam12:20, Ex30:21, 40:31 ** In Islam note Muhamad(pbuh) is considered the Final Prophet, we therefore remember Him, Abraham(pbuh), and their descendants and followers in our daily prayers as instructed by GOD.
  8. 8. If you read and try to understand Rev22 you will note a similar meaning, except Christians mistook Jesus(pbuh) as GOD. He is the Alpha and Omega form then on in a sense his message is nal, and those who want salvation follow him- note idolators, liars, descendant of David( descendant of Abraham refer booklet Mecca in the Bible) Rev22 13“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the rst and the last, the beginning and the end.” 14Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying. 16“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” (apart from the lying penetc etc (Matthew 23:25 and 28,Jeremiah 23:14,Jeremiah 23:16) a few hundred years before printing oral discourses can indeed be a serious problem as regards accuracy) Further reading - booklet What do you call those The Preaching, Greeting,Who Follow Eating...? If we search we get many more equally compatible Glorification of the Lord in all these Scriptures 07
  9. 9. Call for Prayer Allahu Akbar GOD is the greatest(2) Ash hadu an la ilaha illal lah I bear witness that there is no deity but GOD (2). Ash hadu an-na Muhammadar rasulul lah I bear witness that Muhammad(saw)is the messenger of GOD. (2)Hayya 'alas salah Come to payer(2) Hayya 'alal falah Come to your Good Allahu Akbar GOD is the greatest(2) La ilaha illal Lah There is no deity but GOD . It is a Prayer everyone can adopt! Look for similar words in your scriptures. I am sure the prostration and abolution or bath MUST be in Old Scriptures. Further Readings Medical Benets of Salat The Preventive and Healing Wonders of Ablution By Lamya Tawk Stimulating the Biological Rhythms In an article titled “Muslims Rituals and their Effect on the Person's Health”, 08
  10. 10. Dr. Magomed Magomedov, assistant to the department of the Man's General Hygiene and Ecology in the Daghestan State Medical Academy, speaks about how ablution stimulates the biological rhythms of the body and specically Biological Active Spots (BASes), very much like the idea behind Chinese reexotherapy. Presently we know that a man is a complex system of electromagnetic elds, meridians, biological rhythms and so on. Man's internal organs, in their turn, present a no less sophisticated bioenergetical whole; they all have indissoluble multi-channel bilateral connections with the skin, which hosts special spots, whose functions resemble those of buttons on “control” and “ recharge boards” responsible for particular organs. These spots are called biologically active spots (BASes). While pointing out to the similarities between ablution and the science of Chinese reexology in his fascinating article, Dr. Magomedov also states the main different points. To become a doctor in reexology, he says, one has to take a 15 to 20 year course of study, incomparable with the simple learning techniques of ablution. 09
  11. 11. In another comparison, reexotherapy was primarily used to cure diseases and very rarely for prevention, while, as we shall see, ablution has many preventive benets. There was also a negative side to reexotherapy, he says, one that is not found in ablution; a patient was exposed to traumas since doctors used cauterisation. “The majority of the most powerful BASes are being washed during the Muslim ritual. It is not the doctor, who had studied for many years, who does it, but every Muslim by himself. Besides, praying ve times a day obliges a Muslim to take the preventive measures against diseases beforehand.” According to Dr. Magomedov, Chinese medicine says that there are more than 700 BASes, and sixty-six of them have quick reex therapy effects and are named the drastic (or aggression or antique or prime-elements) spots. Out of these sixty-six spots, sixty-one of them are located in zones required for ablution while the other ve are located between the ankle and knee (an area which is desirable, according to prophetic traditions, to wash).Thus, ablution becomes a kind of treatment complex, which includes the hydromassage of the BAS, their thermal and physical stimulation. 10
  12. 12. The BASes in the face (which are washed during ablution) “recharge” such organs as the intestines, stomach and bladder, in addition to having a positive effect on the nervous and reproductive systems, says Dr. Magomedov in his ndings, adding that the BAS responsible for the osseous system, intestine, nervous system, lumbar area, stomach, pancreas, gall-bladder, thyroid gland, solar plexus and others are situated on the right leg, another area reached by ablution. The left leg has the BAS responsible for the work of the pituitary gland, the brain organ that regulates the functioning of the endocrine glands and controls growing. In the ear's cochlea are hundreds of BASes that “harmonize the work of almost all organs, decrease high blood pressure and relieve tooth and throat pain.” Ear ablution is considered Sunna (Prophetic tradition). Another aspect that Dr. Magomedov stresses on is that Prophetic tradition emphasized the importance of massaging and applying pressure during ablution, which is something that has a scientically-grounded explanation. 11
  13. 13. Dr. Magomedov said that his studies were triggered by his solemn belief that the ve-time-a-day Muslim prayers were bound to have not only an “indisputable spiritual effect” but were also bound to “have a purely physical healing effect as well.” Former research carried out in the Soviet Union regarding BAS was regarded unworthy because they believed that “man was not supposed to have either soul or an energy body, because the opposite would contradict the materialistic (atheistic) ideology of those times,” says Dr. Magomedov. Preventive Cleansing From a non-alternative medicine perspective, Mukhtar Salem, in his book titled 'Prayers: a Sport for the Body and Soul', speaks about the health benets of every aspect of ablution. He does not speak about the BASes in one's body, but nevertheless, he describes the preventive benets of ablution. Ablution, he says, helps prevent skin cancer. This is his explanation: the areas that are washed during ablution are the parts of the body that are most prone to be exposed to pollution, whether it is pollution from the internal secretions of the body on to the skin surface, such as sweat, or whether it is external. 12
  14. 14. Ablution, removes this 'pollution' ve times a day, and hence maintains a clean outside layer of skin, which in turn helps the cells underneath to function properly. Also, washing with water helps invigorate the ends of the blood vessels, as well as the nerves and glands that are near the skin surface, and hence helps them perform their functions efciently. Salem adds that research has proven that one of the main reasons behind skin cancer is that the skin is exposed to chemicals, especially petrochemicals, and that the best way to prevent skin cancer is by constantly removing these chemicals. The obvious reason behind washing the mouth during ablution, Salem says, is to remove the food particles, which could cause teeth and gum problems. That is also the reason why siwak (brushing one's teeth) is also encouraged before ablution. When washing one's nostrils, (a practice, which I myself nd very hard, but will try to work on), one is also performing a preventive health measure as the germs trapped in the nostrils are removed and do not pass on to the respiratory system. 13
  15. 15. According to a study conducted by a team of doctors in Alexandria University, the Prophetic tradition, which urges the exaggeration of washing the nostrils by introducing the water in the nostril then blowing it out, positively affects the inner coating of the nostrils. Those who carried out the washing in the correct form had clean, shiny nostrils with no dust clinging to the small hair inside. However, those who did not perform ablution had light colored, greasy nostrils and their nostril hairs fell off easily. Repeated washing of the face invigorates the facial skin cells and helps prevent early wrinkles as well as having a cleansing effect on the inside of the eyes, which prevents eye infections, says Salem. Washing the ear helps rid them from wax accumulation, which may cause ear infections as well as affecting the inner ear, which eventually causes body imbalances. The Prophetic tradition of encouraging one to wash between the toes while washing the feet, is also extremely important, says Salem, as it prevents the foot, which in our modern times is trapped most of the day inside shoes, from acquiring athlete's foot. 14
  16. 16. Over all, he adds, ablution also has an exercising effect on all the muscles involved in its movement, which are thus being stimulated ve times a day or even more according to repetition. Extinguishing the Fires of Anger Prophetic tradition, with regards to ablution, is also ecologically friendly, as the Prophet repeatedly encouraged water conservation, even if abluting from a running river. Ibn Majah related that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "There is a shaytan (devil) for ablution called 'walhan', meaning greedy, avoid the waste of water.” Muslims are encouraged to ablute not only before praying or going to bed, but also when entering the mosque, making the call to prayer, delivering a sermon, after visiting a graveyard, after touching or carrying a dead person and also before reading the Quran. We are also encouraged to ablute while being in a state of anger for the cooling and refreshing effect of the water, as we are told that anger is from the devil who is made out of re and can therefore be put off by water. 15
  17. 17. Finally, there is a moral to this article, besides understanding tbenets of ablution. One should never take things at face value, and must have strong faith that everything that Allah prescribes has a wisdom behind it that we may or may not know. "And they say: 'We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.'" (Chapter 2, Verse 285) 7 Physical Benets of saying Salat January 14th, 2010 | Islamic Knowledge Salat is an obligatory act of worship for Muslims. The importance of Salat has been given in the Quran. God says “Surely Prayer restrains one from indecency”. (29:46) Surah e Luqman The benets of Salat are as follows: 1. Salat is an exercise that reduces cholesterol in the body that causes heart failures, strokes, diabetes and many other ailments. 2. Salat is an exercise that prevents indigestion. 16
  18. 18. 3. In salat the part of takbir increases the ow of blood towards torso. 4. In tashah'hud provides a form of relaxation to our entire body and releases tension. 5. In sajda when you touch your fore head on the ground increases fresh supply of blood to our brain. 6. Holy Prophet said, “There is an organ in the body, when it is healthy, the whole body is healthy, and when this is sick, the entire body becomes sick”. It is the heart. Salat gives exercise to the heart and makes one healthy. 7. Salat has many orthopedic benets for all Muslims. Salat is a perfect exercise to protect the body from Bacteria and viruses'. It prevents the body forms the diseases like arthritis, painful joints and paralysis. You don”t need to understand Science understand this. The benets are for those who Practice.
