Quraish Shihab

Prayer is a request of a servant to his God for the gift of care and assistance, both for the petitioner and for others who must be born from the depths of his heart with his submission and admiration.

Shaykh Taqiyuddin Subki

The term pray is more specific than worship. That is, anyone who is arrogant does not want to worship, then surely arrogant does not want to pray.

Abdul Halim Mahmud |

The meaning of prayer is that it is the desire of Allah SWT for what He has of all goodness and complains to Him by asking for something.

Muhammad Kamil Hasan al-Mahami

According to him the prayer was to ask Allah SWT to seek His favor.

Prayer is included in the core of worship, because the reading in each of our worship contains prayer. So, prayer is a plea and acknowledgment that we are servants of God who are weak, helpless, have no ability whatsoever without God, we can only surrender to Him, asking for forgiveness, help, asking for something desired, and prayer is one of our channels communicating with God.
