The connection between knowledge and prayers

SHAFAQNA – As the knowledge of God is increased, worship and prayers by a human being get better and stronger and as the prayers get better, the rate of knowledge increases because the result of worship and prayers to God is divine piety. Ayah 21 of Surah Al-Baqarah says: O’ mankind, worship your God who created you as well as those before you, so that you become pious. Ayahs 179 and 183 of the same Surah refer to prayers and piety. As the divine piety increases so does knowledge, as mentioned in Ayah 282 of Surah Al-Baqarah and Ayah 29 of Surah Al-Anfaal. Therefore we should not wait till our knowledge increases and then start praying; we need to act on whatever we know and this will lead us to better and stronger knowledge of God.
