The Prayer Niche

Welcome¬†to my new site! I’m Maria and this site will focus on the best way to give peace, find peace and maintain a sense of peace in life through prayer. Mostly, I want to share my own experiences with various kinds of prayer and how prayer can change life positively.

There are many types of prayer: ritual prayer, like the kind said by Muslims daily, or for certain holidays in Islam or other religions on special days or nights; there are non regulated prayer not limited to various types of supplications both personal and formal based on what holy people have said according to verified traditions or sunnah, like duas said by the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam for different occasions, or selected praises of Allah, phrases from the Qur’an and sunnah (traditions) or the Names of Allah or His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam; and there are unseen prayer or meditations that is between Allah and His creation either said in the mind or the heart.

All creation – the natural world I mean – also praises Allah (God) according to what they have been inspired with, for example, the birds chirping at dawn and evening has been going on for a long long time. Therefore, all other animals and even things like stars, rocks, planets and other creation that most people tend to think of as either not intelligent or non-living also have their own way of remembering Allah. Isn’t it ironic that man, who was created solely for the express purpose of remembering Allah, thanking him and working toward the goal of pleasing and worshipping Him in the best manner, is at the bottom of the totem pole so to say, of doing that. And even those who do remember are not very regular at it or need to fine tune their relationship with Allah.

Wherever you are, you can renew that line of light that goes back to the Throne of Allah, the source of life that never dies, and recreate a strong and mighty connection to Allah that never breaks. Find solitude by creating spaces or places in your dwelling just for the remembrance of Allah- I call them prayer niches- but anyplace you live dedicated to the Zikr of Allah.

In this world of constant distractions, iPhones, televisions, music, social forums and unnecessary whatever, find a place, a quiet place, where none of that matters, where your sense of equilibrium is focused on real spiritual meaning, pure peace and soul renewing information to create the kind of life you deserve to live.
