The Relationship Between Salah (Prayer) And Quran

The relationship between Salah and Quran is directly proportional. The more a person knows about Quran the better he would be able to perform his prayers. Actually we recite Quran in most of the prayer activities such as Qayam (when we stand in the prayer and recites Surah fatiha the very first chapter), Qada (when we sit in the middle and end of prayer). We have to recite a Surah (chapter) or at least 3 verses of Quran after Surah Faiha, it means if someone has not memorized Quran (for prayer), he or she can’t actually offer prayer as well.

A person, who pronounces well, recites well and respects Quran from deep down inside will get more benefits in Namaz in comparison to a person who doesn’t even know what is he saying in prayer. Prayer is one of the pillar of Islam and it can only be refined if someone knows Quran.

there is a Hadith that sates prayer is a pillar of Islam, here is the Hadith: Hadhrat Abdullah bin Umar (Kadhiyallaho anho) narrates that he heard the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) saying: "Islam is founded on five pillars: bearing witness that there is no god but Allah, and Muhanlmad (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) is His servant and apostle: estahlishmerlt of salaat: paying of Zakaat; pertorrnance of Hajj: and fasting in Ramadhaan.

Since prayer is one of the pillar that is why it’s important to offer it with utmost respect and care. One can only get the fruits of prayer if he or she pronounces well the Quranic part in payer.
