Ask an Alim

In what pace should I pray my salah?

Q:

In which pace should i Pray my salah? When I pray Ishaa it takes up to 30 – 1H?My parents tell me that I pray very slowly what should I do?!

Is there any hadith about this topic?

A:

Alaykum Al-Salam

As I understood, you must have the issue of waswas (scrupulosity). If this is your issue, you must finish your Salat under 5min. Imam Sadiq, “Waswas is from Shaitan”. There are lots of Hadith that the people with the waswas are doing their Actions, even Salat, for Shaitan. Try to leave it as soon as possible!

If you are looking for more Sawab, the best way for you is to go to Salat Jamaat. Prophet said, Salat Jamaat is 70 times better than Furada (individually).

best regards!
