ALI 256: Spiritual and Jurisprudential Aspects of Salāt
The Holy Qur’an says: surely Salat prevents indecencies and wrongs (Q 29:45).The famous Prophetic tradition says: Salat is the pillar of religion. Most Muslims say their Salat but many find it challenging to achieve the spirituality and presence of heart which makes the salat an act of soaring to the Lord. This course will look at fiqhi (jurirsprudential) and ‘irfani (spiritual) aspects of salat with the aim of offering prayers to get us closer to the Creator. The course would also provide guidance on the basic rules of preparing and saying prayers correctly.
