Prayer – the Second pillar of Islam

Prayer or Salah in Arabic is the second pillar of Islam, and is the establishment of five, daily prayers.

This is obligatory for all Muslims of a mature age, except women who are menstruating. There are five daily prayers which must be prayed at specific times throughout the day: Fajr – to be performed before sunrise, Zuhr at midday, Asr between Dhur and sunset, Maghrib at sunset and Isha between Maghrib and midnight. Performing salah brings much reward, and the opportunity to move closer to Allah (swt), reminding us of God consciousness and piety. 

Prayer FAQs

Why do we need to pray?

Salah is a pillar of Islam – a core belief and practise that is intrinsic to the faith itself. The five daily prayers have been declared obligatory by Allah (swt) upon every Muslim of a mature age.

What are the five prayers?

There are five prayers which take place throughout the day. Their times are not fixed and actually relate to the length of the day, and thus change each day. The five prayers are:

  • Fajr – to be performed before sunrise
  • Zuhr –performed at midday
  • Asr –between Zohr and sunset
  • Maghrib –performed at sunset
  • Isha –between Maghrib and midnight
How many rakaats do I pray?

Each salah prayer consists of a certain number of rakaat (units), which are obligatory (fard). There are additional rakaats which are sunnah or voluntary as nafl. The fard rakaats are as follows:

  • Fajr – 2 rakaat (units)
  • Zohr – 4 rakaat (units)
  • Asr – 4 rakaat (units)
  • Maghrib – 3 rakaat (units)
  • Isha – 4 rakaat (units)
Are there specific rules for salah?

There are a number of rules that Muslims must follow while praying. Muslims must be wearing specific types of clothing which keep areas of their body covered, face Mecca before beginning and must recite certain phrases and passages from the Qur’an at certain points.
