What is the nature of the daily prayers?
...the spirit, the heart, and the mind find great ease in prayer. And it is not tiring for the body. Furthermore, with the right intention, all the other acts of someone who performs the prescribed prayers become like worship...
Why should they be performed?
O my soul! Know that yesterday has left you, and as for tomorrow, you have nothing to prove that it will be yours. In which case, know that your true life is the present day. So throw at least one of its hours into a mosque or prayer-mat, a coffer for the hereafter like a reserve fund, set up for the true future. And know that for you and for everyone each new day is the door to a new world.
Why are they prescribed at certain times?
...since each of these five times is an indication to a mighty revolution, a sign to the tremendous Dominicial activity, and a token of the universal Divine bounties, the prescribed prayers, which are a debt and an obligation, being specified at them is perfect wisdom...
Tashahhud
The words of the tashahhud, which were fitting for the Divine presence, were spoken during the Supreme Ascension of Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him), and by reciting them, believers recall that sacred conversation.
Fasting on the month of Ramadan
Those whose stomachs are full and especially if they are rich, do not understand the degree of bounty there is in a piece of dry bread. But when it is time to break the fast, the sense of taste testifies that the dry bread is a most valuable Divine bounty in the eyes of a believer.
