- Status : NO SOURCE AS A HADITH
Among the many exhortations to motivate people for the prayer, the following narration (passed as a hadith) is often brought ie :
Prayer is the ascension of the believer
“As salâtu mi’râj-ul-mu’min”
There is no source in the hadith books for this statement and since the chain is untraceable, it will not be suitable to quote it as a hadith.
However, the meaning of the statement is generally supported by other references of the Quran and Hadith that salah is a means of communicating with Allah.
