This video was in a campaign to encourage youth to perform their Salat (Prayers).
The verses that were recited in the video are from Surah 75, verses 26 - 30:
كَلَّا إِذَا بَلَغَتْ التَّرَاقِيَ (26)
وَقِيلَ مَنْ رَاقٍ (27)
وَظَنَّ أَنَّهُ الْفِرَاقُ (28)
وَالْتَفَّتِ السَّاقُ بِالسَّاقِ (29)
إِلَى رَبِّكَ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْمَسَاقُ
The translation is:
"26: Yea, when (the soul)
Reaches to the collar-bone
(in its exit),
27. And there will be a cry,
"who is an enchanter
(to restore him)?
28. And he will think
That it was (the time)
29.And one leg will be
joined with another:
30.That day the Drive
Will be (all) to thy Lord!
The importance of the prayer in Islam cannot be understated. It is the first pillar of Islam that the Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned after mentioning the testimony of faith, by which one becomes a Muslim. It was made obligatory upon all the prophets and for all peoples. Allah has declared its obligatory status under majestic circumstances.
The importance of prayer is demonstrated in the many of the Prophet's statement. For example, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
"The first matter that the slave will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment is the prayer. If it is sound, then the rest of his deeds will be sound. And if it is bad, then the rest of his deeds will be bad." [Recorded by al-Tabarani. According to al-Albani, it is sahih. Al-Albani, Sahih al-Jami, vol.1, p. 503.
The importance of the prayers lies in the fact that no matter what actions one performs in his life, the msot important aspect is one's relationship to Allah, that is, one's faith (imaan), God-consciousness (taqwa), sincerity (ikhlas) and worship of Allah (`ibaadah). This relationship with Allah is both demonstrated and put into practice, as well as improved and increased, by the prayer. Therefore, if the prayers are sound and proper, the rest of the deeds will be sound and proper; and if the prayers are not sound and proper, then the rest of the deeds will not be sound and proper, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) himself stated.
In reality, the prayer is performed properly -- with true remembrance of Allah and turning to Him for forgiveness -- it will have a lasting effect on the person. After he finishes the prayer, his heart will be filled with the remembrance of Allah. He will be fearful as well as hopeful of Allah. After that experience, he will not want to move from that lofty position to one wherein he disobeys Allah. Allah has mentioned this aspect of the prayer when He has said,
"Verily, the prayer keeps one from the great sins and evil deeds" (al-Ankaboot 45). Nadwi has described this effect in the following eloquent way,
