Ij’al lii min kulli hammin ashbahtu aw amsaiytu fiihi farajan wa makhrajaa, Allahumma inna ‘afwaka ‘an dzunuubiy, wa tajaawazaka ‘an khathii’athiu, wa sitraka alaa qabiihi a’maaliy, athmi’niy an as-aluka maa laa astawjibuhu minka mimma washhartu fiihi, ad’uuka aaminan, wa as aluka musta ‘anisaa.
Wa innakalmuhsinu ilayya, wa analmusii’u ilaa nafsiy fiima bayniy wa bainika, tata waddadu ilayya bini’matika, wa atabagghadhu ilaika bilma’ashiy, walakinnatsiqata bika hamalatniy ‘alal Jaraa-ati ‘alaika, fa’ud bifadhlika wa ihsaanika ‘alayya.

The Virtue of Prayer According to Islam
The main purpose of prayer is to worship Allah SWT and worship is mandatory for Muslims. Worship itself is the most noble thing that can be done and shown to Allah SWT.
2. Put your trust in Allah
Another virtue of prayer is as proof that we put our trust in Allah SWT. With us as diverse people praying to Allah SWT, we have surrendered everything that happens in the life that is lived to Allah SWT.
3. Demonstrates the power of God
Prayer in Islam can show the power of Allah SWT. Therefore another virtue of prayer is to show that only Allah SWT is the Almighty.
By praying, it means that we as Muslims have realized that Allah SWT has given us all pleasures and accepted all our repentance.
Allah SWT said, “Who allows (prayers) people who experience difficulties and when he prays to Him, and who eliminates distress and who makes you caliphs on earth? Is beside Allah SWT there is (another) God? You remember very little of Him.” (QS. An Naml: 62).
4. Increasing piety
Praying is the same as we interact with Allah SWT or also communicate with Him. So that people who pray will be closer to Allah SWT. The way to increase faith and piety to Allah SWT is by getting closer to Allah SWT. So it is recommended for Muslims to balance all the efforts in the world by praying.
5. In order to avoid disaster
Praying to Allah SWT is also done to ask for help to always be kept away from disasters in any form. However, there is one thing that needs to be known that the prayers we pray can actually be postponed and replaced with something else which according to Allah SWT is much better than what was asked.
“And I will pray to my God, hopefully I will not be disappointed by praying to my God.” (Maryam: 48).
6. To be kept away from the wrath of Allah SWT
According to a hadith, Allah will feel angry if we as His people never ask or pray to Him. Therefore, so that we do not make Allah SWT angry, we must pray and ask Him.
Rasulullah SAW said, “Whoever does not ask Allah, Allah will be angry with him.” (HR. Tirmidhi no. 3373).
7. The heart becomes calm
Another way to make our hearts calm is one of them by praying. Whatever we are experiencing and feeling, pray that our hearts will be much calmer. Prayer in Islam is believed to be a way for humans to live peacefully in this world and in the hereafter.
Allah SWT says, “That is, those who believe and their hearts find peace by remembering Allah. Remember, only by remembering Allah will the heart find peace.” (QS. Ar Ra’du: 28).
8. To be kept away from seashore
Praying is also one way for humanity in Islam to keep away from harm and find the door of mercy from Allah SWT.
Rasulullah SAW said, “Whoever among you has opened the door of prayer, the door of mercy must also be opened for him, and Allah is not asked for something that He gives He likes more than being asked for strength.”
In addition, Rasulullah SAW also said: “Indeed, prayer is beneficial for both what has happened and what has not happened, so you should pray.” (HR. At-Tirmidhi V/552) no. 3548.
9. Can know Allah SWT
With us as Muslims praying, we can know Allah SWT well from what we have prayed for and Allah SWT has given. The prayer offered is a form of our belief in Allah SWT that He is the Most Adequate, and the Most Loving.
10. Eliminating despair
For those of you who feel that while in this world you are experiencing hopelessness and feel unable to finish it, then pray. Allah SWT will listen to the complaints of his sincere people. Be assured with strong faith that Allah SWT will help you and eliminate that despair and provide the best solution to the problem you are experiencing.
11. As gratitude
By praying it means we are also grateful for what has been given by Allah SWT. When we get abundant sustenance and enjoyment then be grateful and keep praying so that these good things can always come to us. With thanksgiving that we often mention, we will be closer to Allah SWT.
That is the prayer of the Prophet Khidir which can be read when we are feeling difficulties and calamities given by Allah SWT. Hopefully those who have a wish or wish will soon come true, don’t forget to keep praying.
