‘Fiqh – Salah’
The Prayer: is the second pillar from the pillars of Islaam and the most important pillar of Islaam after the Shahaadah (testimony) of Faith.The Prayer is a link between the servant and his Lord. The Prophet ﷺ said: “Indeed, when one of you prays, he speaks privately with his Lord.” [Reported by Al-Bukhaaree]
The Prayer is the joy and delight of the believers’ souls. The Prophet ﷺ said: “My delight was placed in the prayer.” [Reported by Ahmad and An-Nasaa’ee]
It is the first Deeds we will be asked about on the Day of Judgement, it is what keeps us Muslim.
Islam has prescribed specified time limits for each of prayer as can be noted from the following verse of the Qur’an: “ Prayer is enjoined on believers at stated times” (Qur’an 4:103).
And in an authentic prophetic saying it is confirmed that someone once asked the Prophet ﷺ about the best action in the sight of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) and the Prophet ﷺ replied:“ Offering prayer at its prescribed time” (Reported by Imam Bukhari).
Thus, the arrival of the time for prayer is a fundamental condition for performing it and if, therefore, a prayer is intentionally performed before or after its designated time it shall not be acceptable in the sight of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). However, persons who may forget (without intention) to perform any of the obligatory prayers within its ordained time or who are overtaken by sleep, then such persons should perform the prayer as soon as they remember it and/or as soon as they wake up from their sleep.
We shall now enumerate the different timings of the five obligatory prayers:

Before you begin your Salah, however, you must make sure that you have a clean body, a clean place to pray, and that you are wearing clothing free of impurities.

§ For males: Any clothing that covers from the naval to the knees. It is preferable to cover the shoulders.
§ For females: Any clothing that covers all of the body (including the head) except the face, hands, and according to Imam Abu-Hanifah the toes and a portion of the front of the feet.
