Two Benefits of The Prayer
Shaykhul Islam Ibn al-Qayyim رحمه الله stated: “Allah تعالى said:
وأقم الصلاة إن الصلاة تنهى عن الفحشاء والمنكر ولذكر الله أكبر
[سورة العنكبوت:45]
“And establish the prayer, indeed the prayer prevents one from indecency and evil, and certainly the remembrance of Allah is greater.”
[Soorah al-‘Ankboot:45]
And I heard Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله say: -The meaning of this verse: Indeed there are two great benefits in the prayer: One of them: It prohibiting one from the matters of indecency and evil. The second: It comprising and consisting of the remembrance of Allah. And that which it consist of the remembrance of Allah is greater than its prohibiting of the indecency and evil.”
