The Muslims Five Daily Prayers – Bahiya Gent

islam_prayer_ms

Below are powerpoint presentations by Sister Bahiya Gent on how to pray the basic five daily prayers (with Arabic, transliteration and English Translation, with additional audio and images):

Fajir ( Dawn) prayer has only two raka’a. Surat al-faati-h’a and another short chapter from the Quraan are read loudly.

Dhuhur (Noon) prayer has four raka’a. And it is read quietly.

Asir (Afternoon) prayer has four raka’a. And it is read quietly.

Maghrib (sunset) prayer has three raka’a. In the first two raka’a Surat al-faati-h’a and another short chapter form the Quraan are read loudly, and the third raka’a is read quietly.

Isha (Night) prayer has four raka’a. In the first two raka’a Surat al-faati-h’a and another short chapter form the Quraan are read loudly. The second and third raka’a are read quietly.

These prayers are recorded for the benefit of those who are beginners and have difficulties in pronouncing the Arabic words. To start praying, use the ear phone and listen to the reader while you are doing the movement, each movement from the standing position, bowing, prostration and going back to a standing position, is called a Raka’a. Try to repeat the prayer with the reader, and gradually you will be able to memorise it. Some people take more time than others to learn the prayer, stay calm and don’t get frustrated, Allah knows your intention, and this is what matters most.

You will need to read a prayer book to learn when and how to do ablution, facing the Qibla when you pray, and making intention. You may find it useful or necessary to ask someone to demonstrate the movements in the prayer and how to do ablution.

After Surat Al-faatiha, you can recite any other chapter or a minimum of three verses from the Quraan. To assist memorisation I have chosen a couple of short chapters to repeat throughout the five prayers, when you have memorised these, Insha Allah, you can try to learn some more.

Note: No additional surah should be read after surahtul Faatihah in the third and fourth raka’a of any compulsory prayer.
