PostSubject: Levels of prayer    Sun 29 Jul - 12:24

Levels of prayer

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said,

"And mankind, with regard to their performance of prayer are in five levels."


The First:

The level of the one who is negligent and wrongs his soul. He is the one who falls short in performing ablution

properly, performing the prayer upon its time and within its specified limits, and in fulfilling its essential

pillars.


The Second:

The one who guards his prayers upon their proper times and within their specified limits, fulfils their

essential pillars and performs his ablution with care. However, his striving is wasted due to whisperings in his

prayer so he is taken away by thoughts and ideas.


The Third:

The one who guards his prayers within the specified limits, fulfils their essential pillars and strives with

himself to repel the whisperings, thoughts and ideas. He is busy struggling against his enemy (Shaitan) so that

he does not steal from the prayer. On account of this he is engaged in (both) prayer and jihad.


The Fourth:

The one who stands for the prayer, completes and perfects its due rights, its essential pillars, performs it

within its specified limits and his heart becomes engrossed in safeguarding its rights and specified limits,so

that nothing is wasted from it. His whole concern is directed towards its establishment, its completion and its

perfection, as it should be. His heart is immersed in the prayer and in enslavement to his Lord, the Exalted.


The Fifth:
The one who stands for the prayer like the one mentioned above. However, on top of this, he has taken and

placed his heart in front of his Lord, the Mighty and Majestic, looking towards Him with his heart with

anticipation, (his heart) filled with His love and His might, as if he sees and witnesses Allah. The whisperings,

thoughts and ideas have vanished and the coverings which are between him and his Lord are raised. What is

between this person and others with respect to the prayer, is superior and greater than what is between the

heavens and the earth. This person is busy with his Lord, the Mighty and Majestic, delighted with Him.



The first type will be punished, the second type will be held to account, the third will have his sins and

shortcomings expiated, the fourth will be rewarded and the fifth will be close to his Lord, because he will

receive the portion of the one who makes his prayer the delight and pleasure of his eye. Whoever makes his

prayer the delight and pleasure of his eye, will have the nearness to his Lord, the Mighty and Majestic,

made the delight and pleasure of his eye in the hereafter. He will also be made a pleasure to the eye in this

world since whoever makes Allah the pleasure of his eye in this world, every other eye will become

delighted and pleased with him.
