Prayer is a way for recognizing one s religion. In reality prayer is the most beautiful way to express one s belief, but it should not be without marifat (recognition). He must understand not only what he is doing but why he is doing it. This is the basic mistake which every parent makes. They teach their children the method of prayer.
Then they think they have fulfilled their duties, and their child has become a namazi (one who prays). This makes their children have a tendency towards blind following. If he has this tendency towards worshiping blindly, then throughout his life he will become more and more deviated from the right path. His relationship with his beliefs will become weaker and weaker.
Until such a time will come, when he completely rebels against the beliefs he has been taught. He believes these apparent acts of worship will take him into the jannah (paradise). During this time, shaitan starts to teach him about these beliefs. He becomes a follower of shaitan. He becomes joyous because he feels he now has a guarantee of jannah because of his worship of Allah.
In reality he is worshiping shaitan.
A famous poet, Josh, said:
When someone reads namaz without marifat, This is a deviation from shaitan Look around yourself and see how many people have signs of sajda (prostrations) on their foreheads. They only talk about prayer and always keep themselves in wudhu (ablution), but you can see they are the fiercest enemies of Ahlul Bayt (as) in their words and actions.
They consider the azadari of Imam Hussain (as) as if it was an ordinary everyday occurrence. They openly insult Ahlul Bayt (as). If you say one word against their so called scholars, there are some who will not hesitate in killing you.
This is a result of the wrong teachings they learned in childhood. They were taught the method of namaz (prayer), but no one explained to them what the true meaning of namaz is. This is why, in our book, we have divided the explanation of namaz into three parts.
1. Order of Prayer
2. Method of Prayer
3. Description of Prayer
