How To Pray Isha, How To Pray Isha Namaz
The Virtues Of Isha Prayer
You should know the isha prayer is the last of the five prayers,it has many virtues, Because many people work at work all day, and at night they feel tired and lazy, for this reason they do not pray the isha prayer, But those who are truly Muslim, do not forget to remember God Almighty at the time of Laziness and fatigue as well, For that, it came in the hadith:
عَنْ عُثْمَانِ بْنِ عَفَّانَ قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، يَقُولُ: «مَنْ صَلَّى الْعِشَاءَ فِي جَمَاعَةٍ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَامَ نِصْفَ اللَّيْلِ». (صحيح مسلم: 656)
In English Text: an euthman bin eaffan qala: samietu rasul allh salla allh ealayh wasallama, yaqulu: “man salla salatal isha’ fi jamaeatin faka’annama qama nisf alllayli”. (Shih Muslim: 656)
Translation: On the authority of Othman Bin Affan, he said: I heard the Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, saying: Whoever prays the Isha prayer in congregation, as if half of the night.
It has been evident from this hadith that the isha prayer is a great virtue, in which the reward for half-night worship occurs.
