Recognition of the Creator, faith in His existence and unity is the greatest privilege, the most delightful experience of a human's life. Faith is strongly interrelated with worship, and worship is both a spiritual nourishment and protection of faith; therefore, if a human is deprived of worship, then faith weakens gradually with each day that passes.
God Almighty created every entity with a purpose, ascribing every creation on earth, ranging from the tiniest grain to the stars in the Heavens, with a specific duty and rendered this duty a form of worship. We humans are honored to be His representatives on earth with innumerous blessings bestowed upon us; the only thing our Creator asks from us is to recognize and glorify Him.
Worship is the most excellent means of expressing our gratitude, the means of showing affection and glorification for all the divine blessings that have been granted. Fulfilling our duty of worship to perfection is dependent on having accurate knowledge of how to perform various forms of worship, whether this is praying, fasting, reciting the Qur’an, or giving charity.
This book is a form of guidance for the youth of today, a guide for their everyday lives. Aiming to meet the practical needs of English-speaking readers for their daily worship, this guide is one that is essential for every Muslim young person
