Prayer is the first pillar of Islam; in Islam, it is made obligatory for all prophets and all people. For all Muslims, it is compulsory to learn Salaah and then offer it five times a day that is named Fajr, Dhuhur, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha.
Salaah is an excellent way through which we can connect with ALLAH SWT; through it, we can improve our connection with the Creator of the universe. No doubt every prayer is equally important in Islam, but Fajr and Isha are considered as one of the factors to measure the difference between Munafiqeen who are pretenders of faith, and Momineen who are true believers.
