Salah = Ritual / organised prayer

Adhan = Public call to prayer


God ordered Muslims to pray 5 times a day:

  • Salat al-fajr - dawn

  • Salat al-zukr - midday

  • Salat al-’asr - late afternoon

  • Salat al-mughrib - after sunset

  • Salat al-’isha - before midnight


  • anywhere, a person must set down their things and face Mecca (qibla)

  • Can pray alone but most prefer to go to a mosque in congregation (equality)

  • Prayer unites the mind, body and soul (movements)

  • Muslims must prayer with the correct niyyah ‘woe to those who pray, but are unmindful of their prayer, or who pray only to
