Prayer keeps away from indecency and evil.

[29: 45]: Surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil.

Does it also mean that ‘despite offering prayers, anyone who is indecent and does the evil deeds, his/her prayers is not being accepted by Allah’?

Thanking in anticipations!

Successful indeed are the believers,Who are humble and content in their prayers, And who shun vain conversation, Who are active in deeds of charity; And who guard their modesty -

And those who are keepers of their trusts and their covenant, And who (strictly) guard their prayers;- These are the heirs ,Who will inherit Paradise: they will dwell therein (for ever).

Amin Ahsen Islahi writes in Tadabur ul Qur'an The success mentioned here is the eternal and everlasting success, that is the only true success and should be the goal of every true believer. In the second verse the word " khusooh" is used for namaz. This is in referance to the true spirit of namaz. When a person bows in namaz in front of Allah, not only should his physical being bows but his heart should too. In the namaz of a true believer, every action of namaz should vow for the humbleness of the person towards Allah.

Islahi states that a namaz that is performed with "Khusooh" , has a profound effect on that person.. It protects that person from indulging in useless conversations and activities. It is a constant reminder 5 times a day of his obligations towards his Creator and the Day of Judgment In surah Ankaboot Allah has said " Namaz stops a person from vulgar and unpleasent things".

Islahi states that in the start the Qur;an delinates the effects of "Khusooh" of namaz on a believer and the verses 8-11 highlight the advantages of guarding the namaz. Namaz is a flower of Paradise, it truely is the guardian of the entire Faith.. It is through namaz that all good deeds under divine guidance progress, without namaz our religion is like a tree stem devoid of any greenary or signs of life.

He further adds, it is one of the essential pre requisites for entering the ultimate Paradise.i.e Jannat ul Firdaus.
