The Meaning of Qabliyah and Ba’diyah in Prayer ~ Hi readers! In several previous articles, I have explained several things about prayer in Islam. One of them is about Qabliyah prayer and Ba’diyah prayer. There is one interesting thing when I looked at some keywords in “Google Search Console“, that there were some people who did not understand the meaning of Qabliyah and Ba’diyah. This is evidenced by the many searches about the meaning of the word. That’s why I wrote this article.
Before I explain more about the meaning of Qabliyah and Ba’diyah, I want to explain that the words “Qabliyah” and “Ba’diyah” are two terms related to the recommended prayer (sunnah prayer) in Islam. The meaning is that a Muslim is not obliged to perform the prayer. But if he does that, then it’s better for him.
Meaning of Qabliyah in prayer
Actually, the word Qabliyah is Arabic. The writing is: قَبْلِيَّةٌ. The word is a transitional form of the word قَبْلَ. The meaning is “Before”. Specifically, the word describes an act that is done before a certain time, before a certain event, or before a job is done.
The word Qabliyah (قَبْلِيَّةٌ) is an adjective. The word characterizes an event or work that is done before another incident is carried out or before other work is carried out.
Thus, if the word Qabliyah (قَبْلِيَّةٌ) is associated with the word prayer, it means that the prayer is performed before another prayer is performed. In Islam, Qabliyah prayer is a type of sunnah prayer or one that is recommended to be performed before the obligatory prayer.
