Importance and virtue of prayer
Since the world is full of darkness, it is only fitting that we should fearlessly ask for light to dispel the shadows. Prayer is a powerful weapon in our spiritual warfare against the forces of evil.
The importance and virtue of prayer, in Islam. Prayers are obligatory on Muslims. There are many reasons why a Muslim should pray, not least of which is to establish a direct connection with their Lord.
The power of prayer
Prayer is a powerful form of communication with God. It is the act of expressing thoughts and feelings to God, either silently or out loud.
Prayer can be done as a form of meditation, to help calm one's thoughts and emotions or to express gratitude or love for God. Prayer may be done privately and individually, or it may be done corporately in front of others.
Many people pray for specific things which they want from God, such as healing from sickness, safety from danger, forgiveness for sin, protection from evil spirits, deliverance from addiction and guidance in the way they should live their life.
The event of prayer
Prayer is a form of religious communication with the divine. Its purpose is to change the spiritual state of the person who prays, as well as their physical state.
Prayer can be a response to a situation that has not yet occurred. It can also be an act of worship, or an act of thanksgiving for what has already occurred.
It may involve some form of ritualistic action such as kneeling, bowing and prostrating oneself before the divine being. Prayer could also involve chanting, singing or music and reading from scriptures or other texts from a religious tradition
The necessity of prayer
The necessity of prayer is a hotly debated topic. It is a religious practice that has been around for centuries. It has also been the subject of many debates and discussions as to whether it is necessary or not.
Prayer, in its most basic form, is communication with God through words, thoughts, or actions. This practice can be done at anytime and anywhere.
The Quran says: "Call on your Lord with humility and in private." (Quran 7:55)
Muslims are encouraged to pray five times a day at specific times throughout the day (dawn, noon, afternoon, evening and night). Prayer can also be done at any time if there's an emergency or something bad happens (like death).
Prayers mentioned in the hadith
The hadith is a record of the words and actions of the Prophet Muhammad. The word "hadith" means "report, story, or tradition."

The prayers mentioned in hadiths are:
- Prayer before sleeping
- Prayer after waking up
- Prayer before eating
- Prayer after eating
