Allah says in the Qur'an:
'Prayer keeps you from profanity and bad actions.'
Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said,
'Tell me, if one of you had a stream running at his door and he bathed in it five times every day, would any dirt be left on him?'
He was answered, 'No, no dirt would be left.'
He continued, 'It is the same with the five prayers. By them Allah wipes out every wrong action.'
NB. This little booklet, while it contains all the necessary information, is no substitute for direct human transmission and it should only be used as an aide-memoir. There is no real way to learn the basics of Islam except by keeping close company with other Muslims on a day to day basis.
