Before the Isha prayer, Muslims are recommended to perform ablution or ablution. This is done by washing the face, hands, and feet with clean water. Muslims should also ensure that they pray in a clean place free from any kind of impurity.
The Isha prayer is a valuable part of the Muslim faith, and by following the recommendations above, Muslims can ensure that they are praying in the best possible way.
How to pray Isha?
Make the intention of prayer (Niyat).
There are two things that are intended by the Shariah:
- Differentiating acts of worship from habits (for example: standing sometimes is simply due to physical desire and this standing becomes worship when it is done with the intention of prayer).
- Distinguishing some acts of worship from others (for example: Zuhr and Asr isha rakats are the same, but due to the different intentions, they are considered separate acts of worship).
Intention is only the name of intention from the heart, so it is not necessary to perform the words of intention with the tongue for the health of the intention. If you are not able to prepare your heart, then it is enough to make a verbal intention; Rather better. This is the order of Fard, Sunnah and Nafil.
It is enough for one who prays alone to make the intention from his heart that he is performing the obligatory prayer at such and such time (for example, Zuhr, Asr) (the number of rak’ahs and the direction of the Qibla are not required) and the muqtadi who joins the congregation.
It is necessary to have two intentions: First, to determine which prayer is being offered. The other should make the intention that I am standing in this mihrab and praying under the guidance of the imam, and in order to become the imam’s imam in the congregational prayer, it is not necessary for him to intend to be his own imam along with the prayer; Rather, it will be correct for the followers to follow him even without the intention of Imamate, however, the Imam will receive the reward of Imamate only when he intends to perform Imamate.
Also, in general prayers (in which the congregation is not large), the inclusion of women in congregational prayers will be valid only when the imam (generally or specifically) intends to follow them.
will not be correct; However, on Fridays and Eids (or where there is a large congregation, for example, the two holy shrines), it is permissible for women to pray without the intention of the imam (but in the present era, women coming to the mosque to pray in congregation is makruh tahrimi).
Enter the Qiyaam and say Takbeer.
First of all, after making the intention, stand up straight and while saying Takbeer Tahreema (Allahu Akbar)
raise your hands up to your ears and clasp your hands (below the navel on top of each other, lower left and upper right) and start reciting Sanaa. will:
سُبْحَانَکَ اللّٰهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِکَ، وَتَبَارَکَ اسْمُکَ وَتَعَالٰی جَدُّکَ، وَلَا اِلٰهَ غَيْرُکَ.
subhanak alllhumm wabihamdika, watabarak asmuk wataealy jadduka, wala ailh ghayruka.

اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلٰی آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، کَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَی إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَعَلَی آلِ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ، إِنَّکَ حَمِيْدٌ مَّجِيْدٌ.
اَللّٰهُمَّ بَارِکْ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلٰی آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، کَمَا بَارَکْتَ عَلَی إِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَعَلَی آلِ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ، إِنَّکَ حَمِيْدٌ مَّجِيْدٌ.

Time for Isha prayer
What are the benefits of prayer?
Prayer is the greatest pillar of Islam after Tawheed and Prophethood. Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) have called it the boundary between faith and disbelief. The spiritual and religious blessings of prayer are Muslim in their place, our main question is the role of prayer in medical research. Because no better light and continuous exercise can be imagined than prayer. Physiotherapy experts (physiotherapists) say that there is no benefit in the exercise which is not continuous or is done so much that the body gets tired. Allah the Exalted has given as His worship the practice in which almost all forms of exercise and physiotherapy are found in the best form.
While the prayer of a believer provides him with a package of complete spiritual and physical benefits, one of the signs of the hypocrites is laziness in their prayer. Allah’s guidance is:
And when he stood up for prayer, he stood up.
Al-Nisa, 4: 142
“And when they stand for prayer, they stand with laziness.”
There is no spiritual, medical or physical benefit to praying in a loose manner without adjusting the organs, while performing the prayer correctly is a permanent and balanced means of keeping cholesterol levels in check.
The Qur’anic injunctions are further explained by this blessed hadith of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him):
So in the prayer of healing.
Ahmad bin Hanbal, al-Masnad, 2:390
“Surely there is healing in prayer.”
According to modern scientific research, the fat that accumulates in the arteries gradually narrows our arteries and as a result of this, deadly diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke are born.
Normally, the amount of cholesterol in the human body is between 150 and 250 mg. After eating food, its amount in our blood suddenly increases. A simple and natural way to dissolve cholesterol before it coagulates has been given by Allah in the form of Namaz-e-Panjgana. Three of the five prayers obligatory on a Muslim throughout the day, namely Fajr (morning), Asr (afternoon) and Maghrib (sunset), are performed at times when the human stomach is usually empty, so these The rakats of prayers were kept short. Zuhr and Isha prayers are usually performed after meals, so keep their rak’ats twelve and seventeen respectively to resolve high cholesterol levels. In Ramadan, after breaking the fast, due to the consumption of relatively large amounts of food and drinks, the amount of cholesterol in the body increases to an unusual level compared to normal days, so along with the seventeen rak’ats of Isha, twenty rak’ats of Taraweeh prayer are also performed.
The wisdom of keeping the cholesterol level in moderation through prayer has not only come to light through modern research, but the hadith of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is also very important. Hazrat Aisha Siddiqa (RA) narrated that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:
Bring your food with the remembrance of Allah and prayer.
Al-Tabarani, Al-Mu’jam Al-Awsat, 5: 500, Amount: 4949
“Resolve your diet (of cholesterol) by remembrance of Allah and prayer.”
If we perform five prayers according to the guidance and practice of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) at their appointed times, there is no part of the body that does not get light exercise in a good way.
Allah and His Messenger know best.
