Praying Together – A Worthy Deed…

No matter how far man has gone in conquering this world and gaining the badge of modernism today, the fact remains undoubted that some of the most primitive values, traditions and cultural practices still affect the man with the same intensity as they did some hundreds of years ago. And of these, religion is a very important one. Yes, religions are truly considered the drivers of human nature and living patterns. Every individual is greatly affected by the values of the religion he follows. The way we live, make relationships, share feelings, exchange commodities and celebrate events largely depend on the preaching of our religion. Certain religions, most notably Islam, preach the concept of praying together. Now, what does it mean? As a matter of fact, the concept and advice of worshipping or praying is there is almost all religions. To make God pleased and to ask for HIS mercy, all men pray. But Islam urges its followers to pray in a group, to pray while whole the community sits together. A number of social scientists think that this concept it a very valuable one since it does not only suffices the needs of worshipping and praying but also present a novel opportunity to the community members to come and sit together every day and discuss what is going on around them. Thus, praying together is not just praying in a group, it is about a social bond that always make you feel that you are a part of living community. People come across the problems of each other; they listen to the issues going on with their neighbors and in this way, the social relationship between people gets stronger. Therefore, praying together ensures a strong bond between God and men as well as between men themselves. And it is something really worthy!
