Performing Salat

Salah is the second of five pillars of Islam. Performing Salah five times daily is compulsory for all Muslims past puberty, which is the age of legal responsibility. It gives us an opportunity to communicate with Allah, remember Him, show our gratitude to Him, with the act of prostration being the moment we are closest to Him. Salah is a gift for every believer and it is the first thing we are accounted for on the Day of Judgement.

We’ve put together this brief guide as an easy way for beginners to learn how its performed, or for anyone who wants to refresh their knowledge. All of the rulings here are according to the Hanafi school of Islamic jurisprudence.

Salah is to be performed during five set times during each day and night. You can easily find the correct Salah times for your location by using an app or website.
