Commentary

 

Zulafa – (watches/parts of night), this word is plural of zulfatun. Zulfatun is that part of the night which is adjoining to that part of the day.

 

Allah Almighty taught His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) about the Rules pf Practice regarding the life of the Muslims and commanded that at first, you should act upon these verses, so that other Muslims do the same in your imitation naturally. You should establish prayer (worship) at both ends of the day i.e. beginning and ending of the day (morning and evening) at fixed times, and determine some watches of night also for offering the prayer.

 

In accordance with this commandment, Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) established two prayers in the first part of the day {(Fajr – (the dawn of the day) and Zuhr – midday (the time immediately after the declining of the sun)}, one prayer in the last part of the day {‘Asr (afternoon prayer)}, and two prayers in the first part of the night {Magrib – (evening prayer) and ‘Ishaa’ – (the prayer of the first watch of the night)}.

 

Accordingly, prayer of these five times is compulsory for the Muslims to be offered. The person who may not offer any prayer of these times due to any excuse, he should offer the omitted appointed prayer afterwards. And the individual who could not attend congregational prayer due to any reason, he should offer it alone separately.

 

“The Prayer” is such an act which is performed purely; only for God, Allah Almighty. Without any doubt, it is a best work. Due to any error or omission, influence of any person or seducing by anyone else, some times a person talks unreasonably. This prayer is expiation for such little sins, because it is a prescribed rule that bad works are reduced to nothing by performing good works. It should be remembered that there should not be any shortness in offering the prayer.

 

Then, it is commanded that these prayers should be established being bound, regularly and steadily. It aims “Patience”. Allah Almighty does not destroy reward of any individual’s good work.
