About the Book
"To glorify Allah" means to proclaim Allah's being free from, and exalted above, the defects, faults and weaknesses, which the idol worshippers ascribe to Him due to their idolatry and denial of the Hereafter. The best form of expressing this is the Prayer. That is why many commentators say that "to glorify" means to offer the Prayer, as it has been commanded to be offered. This is the formula for eradicating evil from the world: “Do good deeds and defeat evil with them.” The best way of making you clean living is to establish Prayer, which will remind you of Allah over and over again. Which will produce those good characteristics in you, that help you successfully fight against the systematic, and united front of evil, that has been formed against the mission of the truth. This will enable you to establish the system of virtue and reform. There is great wisdom in this system of the timings of Prayer. One of these is to avoid the timings of the worship of the sun worshipers. In every age the sun has been one of the greatest deities of the idolaters, who worshipped it at the time of sunrise and sunset. Therefore, these two times have totally been forbidden for Prayer. Besides this, they worshipped the sun at the time of its zenith. That is why Islam has ordained that the Muslims should offer their two prayers during the day time after the sun has declined, and the Fajr prayer before the sun rises. The Prophet (saws) himself has mentioned this wisdom of the timings of prayer in several traditions.
