The Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) says,
“Salaat is the Pillar of Islam and it has ten virtues, viz:
1) It is a charm of the face.
2) A light of the heart & health.
3) A company in the grave.
4) A means for the descent of Allah’s Mercy.
5) A key to the Heaven.
6) A price of Paradise and a protection against the fire of Hell.
7) A person who is particular of salaat, in fact, establishes deen and one who neglects it demolishes (so to say, the structure of) deen.”
8) Refreshment for the body.
9) A weight of the scales (of good deeds) .
10) A means of winning Allah’s pleasure.
