Abstract

The study was a simple random sampling cross-sectional survey conducted among Muslim female in-patients in Obstetrics and Gynecology, aimed at measuring the prevalence of obligatory salat performed, and to identify the factors associated with non-compliance, as well as offering solutions in an effort to assist them in performing salat. Of the 100 patients recruited, only 36% performed the five times a day obligatory salat, 38% did not performed salat at all and 26% performed salat only occasionally. There was a significant difference in salat performance for those with different awareness and adherence to salat obligation pre-admission, different basic knowledge on salat during illness, and different supportive surroundings in the ward. No association noted between patient’s physical disabilities to salat performance. In conclusion, instilling basic knowledge of salat to our patients is important in improving their salat performance. Guidance from ward staff, improvement of salat facilities and patient’s education on salat during illness may improve future commitment to salat. Kajian ini merupakan kajian rawak keratan lintang mudah yang dijalankan di kalangan pesakit wanita Islam dalam Obstetrik dan Ginekologi, yang bertujuan untuk mengukur kelaziman solat wajib yang dilakukan, dan mengenal pasti faktor-faktor yang berkaitan dengan ketidakpatuhan, serta menawarkan penyelesaian dalam usaha untuk membantu mereka dalam melaksanakan solat. Dari 100 orang yang direkrut, hanya 36% melakukan solat wajib lima kali sehari, 38% tidak melakukan solat sama sekali dan 26% melakukan solat hanya sekali-sekala. Terdapat perbezaan yang signifikan dalam mendirikan solat bagi mereka yang mempunyai kesedaran yang berbeza dan kepatuhan kepada kewajipan solat sebelum berada di dalam wad, mempunyai pengetahuan asas yang berbeza mengenai solat semasa sakit, dan sokongan persekitaran yang berlainan di wad. Tiada kesinambungan yang diperhatikan di antara kecacatan fizikal pesakit untuk menunaikan solat. Kesimpulannya, dengan menanamkan asas pengetahuan berkaitandengan salat kepada pesakit kami adalah penting dalam meningkatkan prestasi solat mereka. Panduan daripada kakitangan wad, memperbaiki kemudahan solat dan pendidikan pesakit pada solat semasa sakit boleh meningkatkan komitmen terhadap solat pada masa hadapan.
