Prayer (Salah)

Every Muslim is required to pray five times a day. The five prayers are:

– Salat al-Fajr
– Salat al-Zuhr
– Salat al-Asr
– Salat al-Maghrib
– Salat al-Isha

These five prayers are said at dawn, mid day, late afternoon, sunset and nightfall. The Prophet Muhammad (Sal Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, “The first act that the slave (of Allah) will be accountable for on the day of judgement will be the prayer. If it is good, then the rest of his acts will be good. And if it is evil, then the rest of his acts will be evil.”
