The Muslim Prayer in Bible
All Prophets Prayed the same Prayer (as Muslims pray).
◕ Ancient Jewish Prayer – תפילה יהודית
◕ Early Christians Prayer
● First thing in Muslim prayer is the Adhan or the call to prayer.
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, make thee two trumpets of silver…that thou mayest use them for calling of the assembly…And when they shall blow them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation” [Numbers 10:1-3]
● When Muslims come to the Mosque they take off their shoes.
(And god said to Moses), “Draw not nigh hither; put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.”
[Exodus 3:5, also ACTS 7:33]
● Muslims perform ablution before prayer. [washing face, hands, feet, etc…]
“And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet threat; when they went into the tent of the congregation they washed as the Lord commanded Moses.” [Exodus 40:31-32]
● After this, the Muslims stand for prayer facing the House of God in Mecca.
“Now when Daniel…went into the house; and his window being open in the chamber towards Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.” – [Daniel 6:10]
● Muslims bow down by their foreheads to the ground before God.
“And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed…”
“And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship…”
“And they (Moses and Aaron) fell upon their faces…”
“And Abraham fell on his face…” [Genesis 17:3]
● When the prayer is over, the Muslims spread out their hands to God, asking forgiveness, seeking his Blessings, beseeching his protection for mankind.
“…when Solomon had made an end of praying all his prayer and supplication unto the Lord, he arose from before the altar of the Lord, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to Heaven” [1 Kings 8:54]
“And Jesus Lifted up his eyes and said, Father, I thank Thee that Thou heardest me. And i knew that Thou heardest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that Thou hast send me.”
Those were the ones upon whom Allah bestowed favor from among the prophets of the descendants of Adam and of those We carried [in the ship] with Noah, and of the descendants of Abraham and Israel, and of those whom We guided and chose. When the verses of the Most Merciful were recited to them, they fell in prostration and weeping. But there came after them successors who neglected prayer and pursued desires; so they are going to meet evil – Except those who repent, believe and do righteousness; for those will enter Paradise and will not be wronged at all. [Quran 19:58-60]
