How to Pray in Islam

Article in PDF format Article in PDF format Salah (prayer; pluralsalawat) is one of the five pillars of Islam, and it is the most important. In order for their prayers to be genuine, it is mandatory for all mature Muslims, and highly encouraged for youngsters aged 10 and older, to complete their five daily prayers in the manner in which the Prophet (PBUH) conducted them. People think that communicating with Allah would give them new life and provide them strength when they are in prayer. We Muslims believe that Allah communicates with us via the Qur’an, which serves as our channel of communication with Allah.

  1. 1 Make certain that the space is clean and free of contaminants. This includes your physical body, your clothing, and the location of your prayer.
  • Put on your wudu. Before you begin praying, you must first cleanse yourself ritually. If you are not, it is necessary for you to do Wudu “ablution” prior to doing so. If you have urinated, defecated, passed gas, bled heavily, or fallen asleep deeply since your last prayer, you must perform wudu
  • Otherwise, you should refrain from doing so. For males, entering the amasjid (mosque) softly is recommended because other Muslims may still be praying and you don’t want to disturb them
  • For women, entering discreetly is recommended because other Muslims may still be praying. Using a mat or towel on the floor will help you determine the cleanliness of your environment if you are doubtful about its cleanliness. For Islamic culture, this mat (also known as a prayer rug) is extremely essential.
  • 2 If necessary, take a ghusl (whole shower). It may be necessary to do ghusl rather than wudu in order to be cleaned before and after eliminating najas (impurities), as well as before praying in certain circumstances
  • This will be explained further below. In order to pray after having sexual relations, ending your menstrual period or postpartum bleeding, giving birth, having a wet dream or ejaculating, you must first do ghusl
  • Otherwise, you will not be able to pray.
  • To prepare for ghusl, you must thoroughly cleanse your entire body, including your hair. When doing wudu or ghusl, it is important to remember that everything that stops water from reaching the required regions of the body must be removed, including nail paint, jewelry, and waterproof mascara.

  • s3 If tayammum (dry purification) is required, it should be done. It is permissible for a Muslim to opt out of wudu and ghusl in the event that he or she is unable to utilize water. It is necessary to utilize fresh soil or dirt or a natural rock that has not been used previously in order to execute tayammum for this ceremony. 4 Face the direction of the Qibla. Towards the Holy Ka’bah, this is the direction in which all Muslims should look when turning in prayer. Islam’s holiest site of devotion, the Holy Mosque in Mecca, is considered to be the holiest site of worship in the whole world. When saying their prayers, all Muslims are obligated to turn their faces toward the Ka’bah five times a day.
  • If you are traveling by ship or airline and you are concerned that the time for prayer will expire before you reach a location where you can discern the direction of the Ka’bah, you can give Salat without facing the Ka’bah in this situation. In order to face the Ka’bah at least during the takbeer of ihram (saying “Allahu Akbar” at the beginning of Salat), it is Mustahab (recommended).
  • 5 Pray at the appropriate time of day. The five prayers of the day are held at certain times throughout the day. Each one has a limited amount of time in which it may be completed, which is governed by the rising and setting of the sun each day. Salah takes around 5 to 10 minutes from start to finish, but it is important not to rush through it.
  • Fajr, Zuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha are the five prayers that are observed. They occur at many times of the day, including the morning, midday, mid-afternoon, sunset, and night. Due to the fact that they are dictated by the sun, which changes its route throughout the year, they do not occur at the same time every day. The following are the rak’ah (units) required for each of the five salah: Prayers that are required: The Fajr prayer (Rak’ah) consists of two components. 4 units (Rak’ah) for the Dhuhr prayer. 4 units (Rak’ah) for the Asr prayer. (Rak’ah) – Maghrib prayer (3 units (Rak’ah)) In the morning, say the Isha prayer (4 units (Rak’ah)). Further information, as well as optional prayers, may be found at:
  • Fajr – Two rak’ah sunnah mu’akkadah (optional but highly recommended), followed by two rak’ah fardh (obligatory)
  • Zuhr – Four rak’ah sunnah mu’akkadah (optional but highly recommended), followed by four rak’ah fardh (obligatory), followed by two rak’ah nafl (optional)
  • Asr – Four rak
  • 6 Acquire the ability to recite prayers in Arabic. In order to comply with Islamic law, Salah must be conducted in Arabic because that is the language in which the Qur’an was revealed. It also enables Muslims who live outside of Arabic-speaking nations to perform prayers and comprehend what is being stated during the services. It is less confusing to say all prayers in the same language, rather than having to translate words into several languages.
  • Online resources like as Rosetta Stone, Salaam Arabic (provided by Pangaea Learning), Madinah Arabic, or YouTube sources can assist you in pronouncing the compulsory prayer phrases. Take an Arabic course at your local community college
  • Find an Arabic speaker with whom you may learn and practice the right pronunciation
  • 7 Take care of yourself. Both men and women are required to cover their bodies with clothing that will keep the flesh covered during the prayer. Men must cover the space between their navel and their knees, and women must cover everything except their faces and hands.
  • During prayer motions, the material must be used to cover the body. As a result, if, for example, bending causes a piece of material to slide and show flesh on a woman’s neck, she would need to check that her garment is correctly tucked in or put on more clothes before she could begin praying.
  1. 1Make your objective apparent to yourself in your mind. It is essential that you have the purpose to pray before beginning the salat
  2. Else, you will fail. 2 To pronounce Allahu akbar (God is greatest), raise your hands near to your ears and shoulders and say it three times. “Allah is the greatest,” as the phrase is translated. If you are unable to stand, sit on the floor instead of standing.
  • It is important that the fingers are evenly separated when the hands are lifted.
  • Position your right hand above your left hand in the third position. Place your hands either on your navel, on your chest, or anywhere in between
  • There is a difference of opinion between Islamic schools of thought on where to place your hands. Keep your gaze fixed on the ground at all times. It is beneficial to keep your gaze concentrated on the spot where your head will rest when you prostrate later. Keep your gaze fixed on the task at hand.
  • Recite the optionalIstiftah Du’a (opening prayer): Subhanakal-lahumma Wabihamdika watabarakas-muka wataaaala Judduka wala ilaha ghayruk (Subhanakal-lahumma Wabihamdika watabarakas-muka wataaaala Judduka wala ilaha ghayruk). A’auodu billaahi minash-shaytaanir rajeem a’auodu billaahi minash-shaytaanir rajeem a’auodu billaahi minash-shaytaanir rajeem Bis-millaahir rahmaanir raheem
  • Bis-millaahir rahmaanir raheem Surah Al-Fatiha (which is repeated in each Rak’ah) should be recited immediately after it: Rahmaanir Raheem Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem Alhamdu lillaahi Rabbil ‘aalameen (Praise be to Allah) Ar-Rahmaanir-Raheem ‘Alaihim Ghayril-maghdoobi ‘alaihim Ghayril-maghdoobi ‘alaihim Ghayril-maghdoobi ‘alaihim Ghayril-maghdoobi ‘alaihim wa lad-daaalleen, Maaliki Yawmid-Deen Iyyaaka na’budu wa lyyaaka nasta’een Recite any other surah or any other section of the Quran, such as Surah Ikhlas, in its entirety: Qul huwal laahu ahad ahad ahad Thank you, Allah hus-samad. Lam yalid wa lam yoolad (lam yalid and lam yoolad) In the name of yakul-lahu, I’d want to thank you for your service. After Al-Fatiha, the recitation of a surah is only done in the first two units (Rakaa’s) of fardh salat, however in sunnah mu’akkadah, it is done in all of the units (Rakaa’s).
  • 4 Say “Allahu Akbar” and come to a crouch. Bend your body so that your back and neck are as straight and level as possible with the ground, keeping your eyes fixed on the ground and your fingers and palm resting on the knees, as shown in the illustration. Your back and head should be at a 90-degree angle to your legs when you sit. The angle does not need to be exact
  • Instead, your body should be comfortable. This posture is referred to asruku.
  • While bowing, repeat the phrase “Subhanna Rabbiyal Adheem three times” three times. In English, this means, “Glorious is my Lord the most great.”
  • 5 Get back to your feet (raise from ruku). As you rise to your feet, reciteSamiallah Huliman Hamidah with your arms beside your body. This signifies that “Allah hears the praises of those who seek Him.”
  • While standing, say once the phrase Rabana Walakal Hamd (Our Lord, all praise is due to you). “Hamdan Katheeran Tayyiban Mubaarakan Feeh” (praise that is plentiful, good, and blessed) can be added after the end of each sentence.
  • 6 Say Allahu Akbar and bow your head. Your head, knees, and hands should all be on the floor. Make sure that your forehead and nose hit the ground when performing the “sujood” (prostration). This is referred to as the “sajdah” posture.
  • When you have completed your positioning, recite three times, “Subhanna Rabbiyal A’laa” (Glorious is my Lord, the Most High). Neither your forearms nor your elbows should be on the floor. Your index and middle fingers should be together
  • 7 As you rise from sajdah, bend your knees and sit on them. Placing your left foot on the ground from ball to heel is a good idea. Only the toes of your right foot should be on the ground. Put your hands flat on your knees and close your eyes. This prayer can be recited in many different ways: Allahu akbar, forgive me, have mercy on me, strengthen me, elevate me in status, pardon me, and provide me with provision
  • Allahu akbar, forgive me, have mercy on me
  • Allahu akbar
  • If you are in this circumstance, you can repeat various duas such as Allahu-ghfirleetwice (O Allah, pardon me twice)
  • Allahu-ghfirleetwice (O Allah, forgive me once)
  • And Allahu-ghfirleetwice (O Allah, forgive me once). Return to the sajdah and repeat three times the phrase Subhanna Rabbiyal a’laa.
  • 8 Say Allahu akbar and rise to your feet. You have completed one rak’ah of the Quran. You may need to do up to three additional salahs, depending on the one you’re doing.
  • Every second rak’ah, immediately following the second sajdah, sit on your knee once again. Invoke the following verse: Tashahhud: At-tahiyyaatu Lillahi was-salaawaatu wat-tayyibaat As-salaamu ‘alayka ayyuhan-Nabiyyu wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu, as-salaamu ‘alayka ayyuhan-Nabiyyu wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu Please accept my sincere greetings and best wishes in the name of Allah (swt) and His Saaliheen (God is great).

  • Ash-hadu al-aa ilaaha ill-Allaah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasooluhu
  • Ash-hadu al-aa ilaaha ill
  • “It is Allaah who is deserving of all praise, petitions, and clean speech. Peace and blessings be with you, O Prophet, as well as the kindness and blessings of Allah. The blessings of Allah be with us as well as upon the upright slaves of Allah. I declare that there is no god but Allah, and I declare that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. I declare that there is no god but Allah “in addition to this, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected]
  • Durood: Allaahumma salli ‘ala Muhammad, wa ‘ala aali Muhammad, kama sallayta ‘ala Ibraaheem, wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, fil aalameen innak hameedun majeed,wa baarik ‘ala Muhammad, wa ‘ala aali Muhammad, kama baarakta ‘ala I
  • “O Allah, send prayers upon Muhammad and his family in the same way that You sent prayers upon Ibraaheem and his family in the same way that You sent prayers upon Muhammad and his family in the same way that You sent prayers upon Ibraaheem and his family in the same way that You are indeed Deserving of Praise and Deserving of Glory.

  • 9 Tasleem should be said at the end of the prayer. Following the tashahhud, durood, and whatever du’a you desire to recite, conclude the prayer by saying the following:
  • By turning your head to the right and repeating, “As-salamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu,” you are expressing your gratitude to Allah. The angel that keeps track of your good actions is on this side of the world
  • By turning your head to the left and saying, “As-salamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu,” you are expressing your greetings. The angel that keeps track of your wrongdoings is on this side of the veil. The prayers have come to an end. The phrase As-salamu alaykum wa Rahmatullah can also be used as a version of the tasleem.

  • Consider utilizing a smartphone or computer app to ensure that you don’t forget to say your prayers. You should make every effort to pray all of your salah every day, especially if you are an adult Since you are held accountable for your actions. It is possible to catch up on your prayers when you get home if you are at school or work and there are no prayer facilities available to you there. Rak’ahs are referred to by a variety of distinct names. One that is required is referred to as a fardh rak’ah, while one that was performed by the Prophet and is highly encouraged is known as a sunnah rak’ah. One that is rewarding but not required is known as the nafl rak’ah, while the one known as the witr is the highly recommended prayer said after Isha. Always make an effort to make the most of your time at the mosque. It should not be used as a location of social gathering. If you are unsure about the time of prayer, you can use the location of the sun and the present time as a guideline. If the sun is in the east, below the horizon, then it is most certainly Fajr (the new moon). If the sun is exactly above the horizon, then it is most likely the constellation Dhuhr. If the sun is visible above the western horizon, it is most certainly ‘Asr (the new moon). The Maghrib prayer time is likely to be observed when the sun seems to be in the west below the horizon. In addition, if the sky is absolutely dark, it is most definitely ‘Isha.

  • Plan your daily activities around the five daily prayers, rather than the other way around. Don’t chat throughout your salah and keep your attention on the task at hand. Before going to the mosque or performing salah, make sure your body and clothes are clean and smelling pleasant to avoid offending anyone. It is discouraged to have an unpleasant odor when praying, and if the odor is so offensive that it causes other worshipers to get irritated, this is prohibited. Garlic, in particular, is despised by many people. Avoid interfering with people while they are praying, and avoid standing/walking in front of someone who is praying. That was forbidden by the Prophet (PBUH). Sutrah (barrier) in front of a praying Mumin so that others might pass in front of praying Mumin if necessary is permitted. Never speak too loudly in a mosque, as this may cause those who are praying to be disturbed. In fact, it is frowned upon to speak about worldly concerns in the mosque since doing so negates the objective of the mosque, which is to be a place of prayer, obedience, and learning.

Salah is the second of Islam’s five pillars, and it is the most important. Salah is required to be performed five times daily by all Muslims who have reached the age of puberty, which is the age of legal accountability. It provides us with an opportunity to connect with Allah, to remember Him, and to express our thanks to Him, with the act of prostration serving as the point at which we are most intimate with Allah. On the Day of Judgment, Salah is considered a gift for every believer, and it is the first item for which we will be held accountable.

All of the decisions made in this section are in accordance with the Hanafi school of Islamic law.

Using an app or a website, you may quickly and simply determine the exact Salah times for your area.

  1. Prepare for Salah by making sure you havewudu and wearing clothes that at the most least covers your awrah when it is time to pray. The awrah for males is to cover everything from the navel to the knees, including the hands and feet. Women must cover everything on their bodies, with the exception of their hands, feet, and faces.
  1. Locate a clean spot (such as on a prayer mat) and a location that will not cause discomfort to others
  2. And
  1. Face the Qiblah (the direction towards the Ka’bah in Makkah), which is towards the south-east if you are in the United Kingdom. The Qiblah may be found using the compass on your phone, and there are several free applications that will tell you where it is. For those unable to stand owing to disease or weakness, it is possible to pray while sitting down
  1. Make your purpose for the Salah, either loudly or quietly, before you begin. This may be done either in Arabic or in your native language. In the following manner: ‘I aim to pray the (four) Rak’at of Salaatul (Dhuhr) for Allah while facing the Ka’bah,’ substituting the sections in brackets with the exact number of Rak’ats (units of prayer) and the Salah that you are going to do.
  1. From the time you make this intention until the completion of your Salah, devote your entire attention to Allah and your prayers to Him.
  1. For males, raise your hands to your earlobes
  2. For ladies, raise your hands to your shoulders while chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’. This translates as ‘Allah is the Greatest.’ In this stage ofihram, all worldly activities are prohibited, including chatting, laughing, eating, drinking and thinking about anything that could cause you to become distracted
  3. Nonetheless, you are permitted to do the following:
  1. Place your right hand over your left hand, just below the naval, and close your eyes. Women should cross their arms over their chests.
  1. Say quietly, “SubhanaK-Allahumma wa bihamdiKa, wa tabaarak-asmuKa, wa ta-‘aala jadduKa, wa la ilaaha ghayruK,” or “SubhanaK-Allahumma wa bihamdiKa, wa tabaarak-asmuKa, wa la ilaaha ghayruK.” This translates as ‘O Allah, all acclaim and praise are due to You
  2. Blessed is Your Name
  3. Exalted is Your Majesty
  4. And there is no deity but You’.
  1. Continue to say in hushed tones, ‘Aauudu bi-Llahi min ash-Shaitaanir rajeem bismi-Llahir Rahmaani Rahmaani Rahmaani Rahmaani Rahmaani Rahm’ The meaning of this is: ‘I pray to Allah for protection from the rejected Satan.’ The most kind and most merciful Allah accepts our prayer in his name.
  1. Once you’ve finished, gently repeat the following: ‘Aaudu bi-Llahi min ash-Shaitaanir Rahmaani Rahmeen’ (Auudhu bi-Llahi min ash-Shaitaanir Rahmaani Rahmeen). The meaning of this is: ‘I pray to Allah for protection against the rejected Satan. The most kind and most merciful Allah accepts this prayer in his name.’
  1. Continue to say in hushed tones, ‘Aauudu bi-Llahi min ash-Shaitaanir rajeem bismi-Llahir Rahmaani Rahmaani Rahmaani Rahmaani Rahmaani’. This implies, ‘I pray to Allah for protection against the rejected Satan.’ The most kind and most merciful Allah accepts this prayer in his name.
  1. Then silently repeat the following: ‘Auudhu bi-Llahi min ash-Shaitaanir rajeem bismi-Llahir Rahmaani Raheem’ This implies, ‘I seek safety in Allah against the rejected Satan.’ “In the name of Allah, the Most Generous, the Most Merciful,”
  1. While standing up fully straight again, say, “Sami-Allahu liman hamidaH,” which translates as “Allah heard the one who thanked Him.” Then say, “Rabbana laKal hamd,” which means, “O our Lord, all praise is due to You.”
  1. Say ‘Allahu Akbar’ once again and fall on your knees in Sujood, which is a kind of prostration. The floor should be touched by your forehead, nose, palms of both hands, knees, and toes facing forward when you are prostrating
  2. Otherwise, you should be seated.
  1. ‘Subhaana Rabbiy-al-Aalaa’- ‘Glory be to my Lord, the Most High’- should be repeated at least three times.
  1. While chanting ‘Allahu Akbar,’ raise your chin to your chest. Place the palms of your hands on the insides of your knees. Sit on the ball of your left foot, with the toes of your right foot planted and facing forward, as shown. Women should lean on their left hip, with the toes of both feet pointing to the right side of their bodies.
  1. After a few seconds, return to the prostration position while reciting ‘Allahu Akbar,’ and repeat step 15 twice more.
  1. While chanting ‘Allahu Akbar,’ raise your entire body to your feet. You have now completed your first unit, or Rak’ah, of Salah
  2. You are now ready to go on to the next unit.
  1. Afterwards, return to a sitting posture in accordance with step 16.
  1. When you are sitting, say the first portion of the Tashaahud, which is ‘At-tahiyatu lillah, was-salawaatu wat-tayyibaat’ (In the name of Allah, I was Salawatu Wat-tayyibaat). In the name of Allah, as-salaamu alayka ayuhan-Nabiyyu wa rahmat-Ullahi wa barakaatu (peace be upon you). Salam alaykum wa alaikum lihyeen, as-salam alaykum, wa ibaadi-llahis-saliheen’ (Peace be with you) This signifies that all praise and thanks are due to Allah, as well as prayers and kindness. Peace and blessings be with you, O Prophet, as well as the kindness and blessings of Allah. May Allah’s mercy and grace be upon us and on all of Allah’s honorable slaves’
  1. When you’re finished, keep your hands resting on your knees and lift your right index finger while clasping the remaining fingers on your right hand. Repeat the second half of the Tashahud, ‘Ashhadu a laa ilaaha illallahu wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan abduHu wa Rasooluh’, as many times as you can in a row.

Chapter 4 – How to Pray Salah, Step by Step

Now that our wudu has been properly performed, we may proceed to do salah in the appropriate manner. The salah is performed in the following steps:

  • The following are the actions: standing
  • Takbir
  • Fatihah (recitation)
  • Ruku (bowing)
  • Sujud – prostration
  • Tashahud – sitting

Before you can grasp the steps of the salah, you must first realize that the prayer is made up ofrakah, which are short for “units of prayer.” Every rakah is comprised of the same fundamental steps.

  • When you are standing, there will be a section when you will say something. When you recite from the Quran, there is a point where you say a section when you bend your head
  • A section during which you prostrate (make sujud)

There will be subtle variations in the way these rakahs are done depending on whatever prayer you are doing. Listed below is an overview of the ways in which each of the five daily prayers differs from the others:

  • Fajr is divided into two rakah, or units
  • In Dhur, there are four rakah
  • In Asr, there are four rakah. Maghrib consists of three rakah
  • Isha consists of four rakah.

Step by step, let us dissect the process of doing each rakah of the salah in greater detail.

Learning How to Pray: One Rakah at a Time

In order to begin the prayer, we must set our hearts on fire with the aim of praying to Allah. You should devote your complete attention to the prayer itself as soon as you begin it, and nothing else.

Step 2 – Raise your hands to your ears and say ‘Allahu Akbar”

Whenever you exclaim “Allahu Akbar,” the prayer will be considered to have started. From this point on, you should devote your entire attention to the prayer and make every effort to avoid any distractions. Fun fact: What do you suppose Allahu Akbar means, and how do you pronounce it? “Allah is the Greatest,” according to the majority of Arabic to English translations of the phrase. The true meaning of the phrase, on the other hand, is “Allah is Greater.” What this signifies is that Allah is greater than anything else in the universe.

Step 3 – Lower your hands and place them over your naval. Your right hand should be placed over your left hand

During prayer, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) stated that your eyes should always be directed to the spot where you will prostrate. Although it is not required, it is strongly suggested that you read the following dua (supplication) after reciting Allahu Akbar: subhanakal-lahumma wabihamdika watabarakas-muka wataa ‘ala jadduka wala ilaha ghayruka wala ilaha ghayruka O Allah, what a wonderful being you are. I extol the virtues of Your name and the loftiness of Your position, and no one else has the right to be venerated but You alone.

Step 5 – Recite the opening chapter of the Qur’an

Surah Fatihah is the name given to the first chapter of the Qur’an. This is how you will begin: A’auodu billaahi minash-shaytaanir rajeem’I seek shelter in Allah from the accursed Shaytan (devil).’ After that, begin reciting the passage in Arabic, verse by verse: Bismillah ar-Rahmani ar-Raheem (Blessed are you, Rahmani ar-Raheem) “Allahu akbar” and “Allahu akbar” in Arabic. Ar-Rahmani ar-Raheem Maaliki yawmid deen Iyyaaka na’aboodu wa iyyaaka nasta’een Ihdeenas siraatal mustaqeem Siraatal ladheena a ‘amta’ alayhim Ghayril maghduubi’ alayhim waladawleen yawmid deen The following is the interpretation of the verses from Surah Fatihah: This petition is made in the name of the Almighty, who is endlessly kind and merciful.

The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate.

You are the only one we adore, and You are the only one we turn to for assistance.

It is permissible to recite another chapter from the Qur’an following the recitation of Surah Fatihah. To be on the safe side, at the very least, you should recite Sura Fatihah in every rak’at of prayer.

Step 6 – Bow down. This is known as the‘ruku’

As you are bending down, shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is greatest). It is important to maintain a straight spine, your hands flat on your knees, and your gaze fixed on the ground where you will be prostrating. When you find yourself in this situation, repeat the following line three times: In the words of Subhanna Rabbeeyal Adeem, “How flawless is my Lord, the Magnificent” is said.

Step 7 – Return to standing up again

‘Allahu Akbar’ should be said when you are bending your head to pray. It is important to maintain a straight back, your hands on your knees, and your gaze fixed on the ground where you will be prostrating yourself. This statement will be repeated three times while you are in this position: ‘How flawless is my Lord, the Magnificent,’ says Subhanna rabbeeyal adheem.

Step 8 – Go down to perform prostration. This is known as‘sujud’

As you take up your new post, shout Allahu Akbar (God is greatest). Ensure that your forehead, nose, palms of both hands, knees, and both toes are all touching the ground while you are sitting.

Step 9 – Say this phrase while in sujud (prostration)

Repeat the following statement three times: Subhanna rabbeeyal ‘alaa rabbeeyal ‘alaa What a wonderful creation my Lord, the Most High is.

Step 10 – Rise up from sujud and sit for a moment

As you rise from sujud and sit on your left leg, say Allahu akbar to the Almighty. During this position, your left foot will be flat on the floor and your right foot will be standing straight. Place your hands on the inside of your knees. When you find yourself in this situation, it is suggested that you seek Allah’s pardon. A basic and straightforward dua to recite is: Rabigh-fir lee Please forgive me, O my Lord.

Step 11 – Return to the position of sujud

After that, you will do a second sujud and saysubhanna rabbeeyal’alaa three more times, and then you will repeat step 9.

Step 12 – Arise from the sujud to return to the standing position and say Allahu Akbar

Congratulations, you have just completed a full rakah of prayers! The first rakah of every prayer is carried out in the manner described in these twelve stages. Thetashahud, also known as step 13, is performed after you reach the conclusion of the second rakah.

Step 13 – Perform the tashahud at the end of every two rakah

After the two sujud, instead of standing up, you will sit on your legs and knees for the remainder of the practice session. Then you’ll raise your right index finger and say:At Tahiyyaatu lilaahi was Salawaatu wat tayibaatu Assalaamu ‘alika ayyuhan nabiyyu wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakaatuh Assalaamu ‘alaynaa wa ‘alaa ‘ebaadillaahis s Allah is the recipient of all compliments, prayers, and clean words. Peace and blessings be with you, O Prophet, as well as the kindness and blessings of Allah. Peace be upon us and upon Allah’s upright slaves, as well as upon the whole world.

If this is the final rakahin of the prayer, you will include the following section in the tashahud: Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali, Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Muhammad Kamaa salayta ‘ala aali Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibrahim Innaka Hameedun Majeed ‘ala aali Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibrahim Innaka Hameedun Majeed Wa baarik ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Muhammad Kamaa baarakta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibrahim Innaka Hameedun Majeed Wa baarik ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Muhammad Kamaa baarakta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibrahim Innaka Hameedun Majeed Wa baarik ‘al O Allah, give blessings onto Muhammad and his family (or followers), and grant them repentance.

You are filled with Praise and Majesty, just as You sent prayers upon Ibrahim and his family (or followers), Verily, You are filled with Praise and Majesty.

Looking to your right and saying, “Assalamu Alaykum wa rahmatu Allah” is the correct way to begin. Afterwards, turn your head to the left and repeat the phrase: “Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatu Allah.” As soon as the tasleem is said, the prayer will be considered completed.

The Next Step

You should now be able to conduct a rakah, which is one unit of prayer. In order to complete one salah, it is necessary to mix two, three, or four rakah together. That will be covered in greater detail in the following chapter.

Salat: Daily Prayers

Salat (daily prayer) is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, and it is performed every day. Salat begins with ceremonial cleansing (wudhu), which serves as a prelude to prayer. Muslims pray facing theqiblah (the direction of Mecca), which is commonly represented in mosques by an amihrab (affixed to the wall) (niche in the wall). In addition to Fridays and festivals like as Eid, additional forms of salat are performed.

The importance placed on daily ritual prayer is one of the most distinguishing characteristics of Muslim life. Every Muslim after reaching the age of adolescence is obligated to do five daily prayers, which are collectively referred to as salat, which means “circumambulation.” Every hour of the day is punctuated by prayers, with the first taking place before dawn, followed by another at lunchtime; the third takes place at midday, another after sunset, and the last prayer as the sky begins to darken; the prayers continue until the sun sets.

  1. In order to focus the mind and heart on the first objective of life, which is service to God, thesalat offers a regular pause of the day’s activities on a regular basis.
  2. Cleaning the hands is followed by rinsing the nose and mouth, washing the face and ears, washing the arms and the hair, and ultimately concluding with washing the feet.
  3. Worshippers take their places towards theqiblah, or the direction of Mecca, in order to begin the prayer.
  4. Standing, kneeling, prostrating, and sitting are among the four postures of salat, which are followed by the recital of the Qur’an as well as additional formulae of praise and glorifying of God that correlate to each of the four postures of salat.

Immediately following this, the worshipper prostrates himself on the ground, hands and feet touching the ground while repeating, “subhana rabbiyal a’laa,” which means “Transcendent is my Lord, the Most High.” In contrast to the beginning of the salat, which extols the transcendence of God, the end of the salat sends regal praises to God, as though worshipers had come into His presence.

The complete cycle of prayer, including its announcements and postures, is a tangible manifestation of the Muslim’s devotion, both internally and externally, to the service, worship, and path of God, and it is performed in the presence of others.

Despite the fact that Muslims pray salat five times a day, they may also do extra forms of salat on holidays and other special occasions.

Muslims may also recite supplementary salatduring any time of day or night, wherever they are, as long as the environment is clean; however, this is entirely voluntary for them.

Instructional videos assist new Muslims and children in learning how to pray; scientifically calculated prayer times provide Muslims with a more accurate method of determining when to pray; smartphone apps include digital Qur’ans and automated reminders or audio that play theadhanfive times daily, making it easier for Muslims to remember to pray at work or when they are out in public; and digital Qur’ans are available on the internet.

Ritual prayer is also not the sole type of prayer in Islam; once the daily prayers have been completed, or at any other time, Muslims may sit with their palms up and recite adu’a, which is an individual prayer of petition and praise to Allah.

In Muslim life, prayer is a vital pillar, both for the individual Muslim and for the greater Muslim society as a whole.

The Posture of Prayer: A Look at How Muslims Pray

During the course of our stay, my companion got up and left me sitting alone in the center of it. She moved away from the table, pulling a long skirt over her pants and grabbing a headscarf as she prepared to do her ceremonial Islamic prayers, which consist of a predefined series of postures and recitations performed while facing Mecca, Saudi Arabia. After being left to wait for her to complete her prayer, I felt embarrassed and had a lot of doubts regarding Muslim prayer and how I should respond in such situation.

The Importance of Prayer in Islam

It was her prayer process that caused such a jarring interruption to our conversation, but it was in conformity with Islamic laws, which establish five pillars that must be observed in devotion to Allah. Salat (ritual prayers) are performed five times a day by a devout Muslim. They are performed in the morning before sunrise, about midday, late afternoon, after sunset, and in the late evening. Men known as muezzins call the faithful to prayer from the pulpit of their local mosque or by radio or television broadcasts from all over the world.

Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, and I bear witness to this.

Be on your way to success.

According to the Call to Prayer in Doha, Qatar, “There is no deity except Allah.” According to Islamic tradition, the first words a baby hears whispered in their ear should be the call to prayer.

Preparing to Pray

Prayer at mosques is recommended, but it is not mandatory. Muslim ceremonial prayers have been witnessed in a variety of settings, including houses, public parks, and airport gates, throughout my time living abroad. When Muslims are not in attendance at a mosque for prayers, they may utilize a prayer mat to establish a clean environment for prayer.

  1. They wash their faces, wash their hands up to their elbows, wash their heads, and wash their feet up to their ankles (surah 5:6).
  2. After engaging in sexual activity, it is necessary to take a complete bath.
  3. Before performing his prayers at the Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque in Erzurum, a Muslim conducts his ablutions, which are ritual washings performed before each prayer.
  4. Women should remove anything that can interfere with proper washing, such as nail paint.
  5. A person’s prayer is rendered useless if he or she is gasping or giggling while praying.
  6. In addition to their faces and hands, women cover their whole bodies, while males cover the area between their navel and their knees.
  7. Friday prayers at Masjid Istiqlal, the biggest mosque in Southeast Asia, are held in a special area reserved for women.

A nonverbal intention known as aniyyah is then made, which is intended to direct the heart toward real worship rather than empty outer activities.

Despite the fact that the vast majority of the world’s Muslim population lives outside of the Middle East and does not know Arabic, the ceremonial prayers and recitations of salat must be conducted in the Arabic language.

When a Muslim does salat, he or she recites prayers and completes moves in a series of cycles known asrak’a.

Throughout the motions, a number of different declarations and prayers are repeated, with the phrase “Allah is wonderful” being chanted before each new movement.

The Postures of Prayer in Islam

Everything that takes place throughout the prayer process should be done with reverence and respect. The ceremony begins with the participants standing with reverence and quiet. While standing, certain religions prescribe that you cross your hands over your chest or navel to show respect. In Egypt’s Old Cairo, the Amr ibn Al-Aas Mosque hosts a midday prayer service in which Egyptian males take part. The motifs on the carpet are a reference to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, which is where Muslims offer prayers.

Bowing

With hands on knees and your head protruding out from a straight back, Rukuis the movement of bending forward with your hands on your knees. This demonstrates Allah’s humility, devotion, and remorse on one’s part. When Muhammad bowed, it is reported that he held his back so straight that a drop of water would not roll off his back.

Prostrating

“Prostrate and get near,” the Qu’ran directs us to do. When you are in a kneeling position, prostration occurs when you place your face on the ground. Prostration is defined by Islamic International Publications as “a posture of extreme humility, surrender, and helplessness in which a supplicant expresses his heart before Allah Almighty and pleads for His pardon,” according to their prayer guide. Men from the Kurdish community pray inside Erbil’s Great Mosque. Photo courtesy of the International Monetary Fund’s Photo Library.

Muhammed would prostrate himself on his “seven limbs,” which were his palms, knees, feet, and face.

Muslims believe that doing bowing and prostrating correctly will result in a significant spiritual recompense from Allah.

Sitting

A transitional position between prostrating and uttering extra prayers, the worshiper sits up on their knees while repeating additional prayers. Finally, when the worshiper moves his or her gaze to the right and left, he or she offers prayers for pardon and declarations of peace to Muhammad, Abraham, and the angels in attendance.

Prayer Postures in the Bible

When praying, it’s important to remember that the Bible records a variety of ways God’s people approach him, including bowing (Ex. 34:8; Ps. 5:7), kneeling (2 Chron. 6:13; Phil. 2:10), lying prostrate (Matt. 26:39; Rev. 1:17), and lifting their hands (Ps. 141:2; 1 Tim. 2:8), lifting their eyes (John 11:41; Luke 9:16), and raising their voices (Ps. 77:1). God’s people have been expressing their devotion to the Lord via a variety of bodily postures since the beginning of time. However, while these bodily postures are not intrinsically sinful when used as physical manifestations of worship, most Muslim-background Christians, such as my friend Hasan*, choose to reject the structure of thesalat when they come to faith in Jesus Christ.

A confident and close relationship with God is expressed in Christian prayer, according to the author.

As opposed to placing his face to the earth, he raises his face to the skies. To express his gratitude and gratitude for his salvation, he lifts his arms with palms facing heaven.

How to Engage with Muslims Who Pray

It might be disconcerting to be in the presence of a Muslim while they are doing their ritual prayers. What is the best way for a Christian to think about and respond to these different prayer postures? Muslim prayer, according to the Muslim Prayer Book, has four main goals: receiving forgiveness of sins, becoming closer to Allah, expressing one’s subjection to Allah, and communing with Allah. Because of Christ’s work on the cross, all who believe in him are already forgiven of their sins. In regulated worship, prayer is not a required act of obedience.

As Christians, we communicate with our heavenly Father via Jesus Christ, who atoned for our sins and provided a way for those who put their trust in him to be saved to enter God’s presence with assurance (Heb.

The certainty that we have in these realities allows us to communicate with our Muslim friends in a loving and compassionate manner.

  1. Discuss prayer in an open and honest manner. Inquire about their prayers by asking questions. Although the material in this page provides a broad overview of Muslim prayer, each individual will express their own views, beliefs, and day-to-day activities
  2. Yet, Pray in front of and for your friends, in the name of Jesus Christ. Most Muslims are respectful of their Christian friends’ prayers and would be willing to allow you to pray in front of them if you asked. They require hearing the way you courageously communicate with God via Christ. It is possible that God will use your prayers to enlighten their eyes to the truth of Jesus. Don’t try to keep the key to the royal room a secret. You have received the good news of everlasting life. The door to God’s throne chamber is opened by Jesus Christ, who grants admission to those who believe in him. Explain to your Muslim friends how they too can be totally forgiven of their sins and come confidently to God as his child by sharing the gospel with them.

Hasan suggests that people effectively communicate about the person and work of Jesus, including his spotless life, divinity, life, death, and resurrection, as well as his death and resurrection. Prepare yourself for the fact that these realities will turn many Muslims away. You should also be prepared for individuals, like as Hasan, who are sincerely looking for God to come to the realization that their search has come to an end. They have discovered God via the person of Jesus Christ. *Name has been modified.

Takbir Despite the fact that Muslims can pray to God at any time of day or night, there are five prayers that they are required to complete throughout the day. They always follow the same format so that everyone in the assembly can follow along, and the fixed prayers are always repeated in Arabic. Takbir is entering the state of prayer by praising God and expressing gratitude to him. Muslims turn their faces towards Makkah with the goal of praying. Their first words of prayer are ‘Allahu Akbar,’ which means God is magnificent, and they raise their palms to their ears or shoulder to signal the start of the prayer.

It is customary to read a brief petition in which God is praised and protection is sought.

Following that, verses from any other chapter are spoken.

During ruku, Muslims repeat three times the phrase “glory be to God, the Most High.” During prayer, it is strictly forbidden to fidget or glance about the room.

Qiyaam in brevity The phrase ‘God listens to the one who praises Him’ is said by Muslims as they move into the upright posture, and once they are in the standing position, the phrase ‘To God belongs all praise’ is recited.

This time, the hands are placed loosely at the sides.

This signals to those who are participating in the prayer that the leader is preparing to make the next movement in the prayer.

Once again, the phrase “Glory be to God, the Most High” is repeated three times while in the prostration position.

When it comes to stealing from one’s prayer, the Prophet remarked, “The worst thief is the one who takes from his prayer.” During his prayer, his friends inquired, “O Messenger of Allah, how can he take from you?” “He does not perfect its ruku and sujud,” he stated.

The Muslims take a few seconds to reflect here, either being silent or delivering a shortened prayer.

The Prophet said that each movement should last as least as long as it takes for the bones to settle back into their original positions.

He made this comparison because of the speed with which they do it.

Sujud This sujud is the same as the first one, and it is identical.

Each region, on the other hand, has its own set of units.

After saying “God is Great,” Muslims rise up and repeat everything from Surah Al Fatiha till they reach the sujud posture once more.

A predetermined number of brief prayers in Arabic are recited by them, in which they praise God and wish peace on the Prophet.

They then pray to God for blessings and peace to be bestowed upon Prophet Abraham and his family, as well as for the same to be bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad.

To the right, there is tranquility.

To the left, there is tranquility.

‘Peace be upon you, and may Allah’s compassion and blessings be upon you’ is repeated as the speaker moves to the left. Muslims believe that the Angel on the right side records all of their positive deeds and ideas, whilst the Angel on the left side records all of their evil deeds and thoughts
