The Muslim Prayer Encyclopaedia (A Complete Guide to Prayers As Taught By The Prophet Muhammad)
The Muslim Prayer Encyclopaedia (A Complete Guide to Prayers As Taught By The Prophet Muhammad)
Description
About the book

An indispensable guide to the content and practice of Muslim prayer, based on a comprehensive study of all the authentic Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad as presented in the collections of Bukhari, Abu Dawud and Muslim.

About the Author

Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood was Head of Religious Studies at various schools in England. She took her honours degree as a Christian theologian at Hull University, in 1963. After extensive travels in the Middle East, she embraced Islam. Among her twenty books on many aspects of religion she has written the much acclaimed Teach Yourself Islam and The Muslim Marriage Guide.

Preface

The aim of this work has been to present before the reader a comprehensive overview of the teachings about prayer, and the particular practice and recommendations of the Blessed Messenger of Allah ( ), as recorded in the authentic hadith collections of al-Bukhari, Muslim and Abu Dawud. It is beyond the scope of the average Muslim to buy and own the full text of these hadiths, and it is hoped, therefore, that this book will provide a useful tool for the Muslim student eager to understand Islamic prayer in its spirit and practice. Every quotation from the hadiths is given with its full reference, so that the scholar can refer back to the source if desired.

It covers every topic, including the basic outline to guide the beginner's performance of the rak 'ah, a selection of prayers and blessings for particular occasions, a guide to the correct behaviour in the mosque and the performance of congregational prayer, thoughts on the importance of the realisation of the Compassion and Mercy of Allah, the ministry of healing, and prayer for the deceased.

True to the spirit of the hadith collections themselves, it also includes interesting details of the Blessed Prophet's private prayers and what it was like for a child to spend a night in his company (recorded by his nephew Anas); it highlights the intimate love of the Blessed Mother of the Faithful, Aishah, the bet's beloved (may peace be upon both of them), and reveals her authority as a faithful witness to the Prophet's thoughts and practice. From the sublime to the mundane, it also picks out such fascinating matters as correct toilet procedure and the medical use of camel's urine!

May Allah be pleased with my humble efforts to work in his service?

'To Him we belong, and to Him is our return.'

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
Love your collection of books! I have purchased many throughout the years. I love you guys!
Stevie, USA

Jason, USA
Excellent quality and service, best wishes to you all.

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
