Pray As A Group – A Noble Deed…

There are many religions in the world, most of them having millions of followers living in different parts of the world. Statistically speaking, Islam and Christianity are the most prevailing religions of the world at the moment since the number of followers in these two religions are the maximum. Taking a look into these religions, especially that of Islam, a great focus has been laid on the social grouping and social interactions between people living in a community. Similarly, many religions are there which appreciate people getting together, sharing and living in harmony with each other.
Praying or worshiping may be considered as an act of pleasing God and seems to have nothing to do with the social interactions. However, religions like those of Islam have asked its followers to make sure that they pray as a group for most of the time so that this praying together may become a source of social interactions between them. In fact, once people get together for the purpose of praying, they stand together without any social difference of rich and poor and once they get a feel that they are standing before the Lord of all lords, they feel humble and more like a family. This is why praying as a group has been such a great activity. Besides religious point of view, a number of social scientists have a highlighted many benefits of praying as a group. When people pray as a group, they are more likely to be aware of the problems others are facing and they are more likely to share the moments of happiness. Therefore, it just becomes an ideal sort of an activity which not only pleases God but also pleases men and makes man get the feel that he is a true social animal by all means.
