Hadhrat Uthmarl (Radhiyallaho anho) is reported to have said. “Allah bestows nine fdvours on a person who guards his salaat and is particular in performing it at its appointed hours: viz;
1) He is loved by Allah.
2) He enjoys good health.
3) He is constantly under the protection of angels.
4) His home is blessed.
5) The light of righteousness shines on his face.
6) His heart is made soft.
7) He shall cross the Bridge Siraat with the speed of lightning.
8) He is saved from Hell and
9) His neighbors in Paradise are those about whom Allah has said.
“‘There shall be no fear come upon them, neither shall they grieve (11: 36).”
