Prayer

Prayer

Muslims believe that they must pray to Allah as a sign of respect, submission, and in order to receive his guidance. These prayers are always offered five times a day. The first prayer is offered at sunrise, followed by a prayer at noon, a prayer in the afternoon, a prayer at sunset, and a prayer in the evening. These prayers are offered while standing kneeling, bowing, and touching one’s forehead to the ground in a sign of respect to Allah.

 

Muslim Prayer

Often Muslims will meet together in a mosque or religious center on Fridays to pray together as a group. These prayer services are led by an imam, who is not a formal clergyman, but is a self-appointed religious leader.
