Prayer in Islam is the most fundamental act of worship. It  is means of achieving closeness with the One that created us and facilitates Divine love. Significantly it fulfils our ultimate and most profound purpose in our lives: worship.

Muslims do not believe in worshipping idols or making pictorial representations of God. These are considered sacrilegious. Rather, they believe in worshipping God alone without any intermediaries or saints. Worship is the essence of man’s nature, allowing man to fulfil his true purpose in this world.
