Why Is Dhuhr Prayer Silent? Read This!

Hi all readers! Are you looking for an explanation of "why is Dhuhr prayer silent?"? If your answer is “Yes”, congratulations! Now you are reading the right article. Why? Because that is what I will explain in this article. As Muslims, we must understand that. That's why I wrote this article. So, you should read it to the end!

why is dhuhr prayer silent, dhuhr prayer,

Specifically, there are two important things about "why is Dhuhr prayer silent?" which I will explain in this article. Two important things I mean are as follows:

Which Prayers Are Silent and Loud in Islam?

The first important thing about "why is Dhuhr prayer silent?" What I will explain now is "which prayers are silent and loud in Islam?". I want you to understand that first before you read any further explanations in this article because that is one of the important questions in this discussion that should be well understood.

In Islam, the silent prayer is called "as-Shalah as-Sirriyyah (الصَّلَاةُ السِّرِّيَّةُ)". The point is that when Muslims perform the prayer, they must recite the readings in the prayer, especially surah al-Fatihah and other suras after surah al-Fatihah, in a quiet voice.

As for the loud prayer it is called "as-Shalah al-Jahriyyah (الصَّلَاةُ الجّهْرِيَّةُ)". The point is that when Muslims perform the prayer, they must recite the readings in the prayer, especially Surah al-Fatihah and other suras after Surah Al-Fatihah, in a loud voice.

The difference between silent prayer or "as-Shalah as-Sirriyyah (الصَّلَاةُ السِّرِّيَّةُ)" and loud prayer or "as-Shalah al-Jahriyyah (الصَّلَاةُ الجّهْرِيَّةُ)" is the way of pronouncing the readings in prayer. One is said in a quiet voice, while the other is said aloud as I have explained earlier.

If we read some Islamic legal literature on prayer, we will find an explanation that there are two types of silent prayer. The two prayers I mean are Dhuhr and Asr. While the loud prayer are Maghrib, Isha, and Fajr.

So, if you ask me, "which prayers are silent and loud in Islam?", the answer is: Dhuhr and Asr are silent prayers, while Maghrib, Isha and Fajr are loud prayers. That's the answer.

That is a brief explanation of "which prayers are silent and loud in Islam?". As Muslims, we must understand that.

Why Is Dhuhr Prayer Silent?

The second important point about "why is Dhuhr prayer silent?" what I'm going to explain now is a specific answer. So, I really hope you read the explanation below very well.

If you ask me, "why is Dhuhr prayer silent?", the answer is because the Prophet Muhammad silenced the Dhuhr prayer. He did not recite the readings in the Dhuhr prayer in a loud audible voice as when he prayed Maghrib, Isha, and Fajr. As Muslims, we are required to imitate the way he prayed. We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ مَالِكٍ بْنِ الْحُوَيْرِثِ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : صَلُّوْا كَمَا رَأَيْتُمُوْنِيْ أُصَلِّي . رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ

From Malik bin al-Huwairits radliyallahu anhu, he said, "The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, "Pray as you have seen me praying." This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari.

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : فِيْ كُلِّ صَلَاةٍ يَقْرَأُ فَمَا أَسْمَعَنَا رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَسْمَعْنَاكُمْ وَمَا أَخْفَى عَنَّا أَخْفَيْنُا عَنْكُمْ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallahu anhu, he said, "In every prayer he reads, what he listens to us (read aloud) then we listen to you (read aloud too), what he hides from us (read silently) so we hide also to you (read silence too)."

Prophet Muhammad is the best example for all people, especially Muslims. He is the most perfect person when he prays.

لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِيْ رَسُوْلِ اللّٰهِ اُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُوا اللّٰهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْاٰخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللّٰهَ كَثِيْرًا

There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often. (Al-Ahzab [33]; 21).

All readers! That is a brief explanation of "why is Dhuhr prayer silent?" and some important things about it. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!

I think that's enough for this article. May be useful. Amen.

See you again in the next article!
