Dear brothers, the basic Ayah of the topic we are discussing today is the one in which Allah the Almighty says:

Allah the Almighty says:

﴾ (Successful indeed are the believers* Those who offer their Salat (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness.) ﴿

[ [Al-Mu'minun, 1-2] ]


Performing Salah submissively is the result of steadfastness and offering a righteous
