Translation of Salah, What are we actually praying? 🧵
As Muslims, we offer Salah five times a day, every day, but do we actually understand the meaning of what we recite during our Salah? Do we know the significance of the words we are actually uttering?
It is pertinent for every Muslim to not just know the Arabic recitations of Salah, but to understand what it means as well.
"Allahu Akbar" Allah is the Greatest. "Subhanaka Allahuma wa bihamdika wa tabarak asmuka wa ta ala jaduka wa la ilaha ghairuk" Glory be to You, O Allah, and all praises are due unto You, and blessed is Your name and high is Your majesty and none is worthy of worship but You.
"Aodhobilah Audhu billahi minash shaitanir rajeem" I seek Refuge with Allah from Satan, the accursed. "Bismilahi rahmani rahim" In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
"Alhamdu lillahi rabbil alamin. Ar-rahmanir rahim. Maliki yaumi din. Iyaka na'budu wa iyaka nastain. Ihdina siratal mustaqim. Siratal lazina an amta alaihim Ghairil maghdubi alaihim walad dalin" All the praises are for Allah, the Sustainer of all the worlds,
the Beneficent, the Merciful, Lord of the Day of Judgment. You alone do we worship and You alone do we ask for help. Lead us along the straight path, the path of those upon whom You have bestowed Your favours, not of those who incurred Your wrath, nor (of those who) went astray.
• Ruku "Subhana Rabbiyal Adheem" Glory be to my Lord, the Almighty. • Qayyam "Sami Allahu liman hamidah Rabbana wa lakal hamd" Allah hears those who praise Him. Oh our Lord, all praise is to You. • Sajdah "Subhana Rabbiyal ala" Glory be to my Lord, the Most High.
Athahiyyaatu lillaahi was-salawaatu wattayyibatu. Assalamu 'alaika ayyuhan-nabiyu warahmatullaahi wabarka'tuhu. Assalamu 'alaina wa'alaa 'ibaadillaahis saa'liheen. Ash'had'u alla ilaha illallahu wa ash'hadu anna Muhammadan abd'uhu wa rasoolu.
All compliments, all physical prayer and all worship are for Allah. Peace be upon you, O' Prophet, and Allah's mercy and blessings be on you. Peace be on us and on all righteous slaves of Allah. I bear witness that no one is worthy of worship except Allah
"Assalamu 'alai'kum warah'matullaah" May the peace and mercy of Allah be with you
