What Is Namaz Salat Prayer | Full Detail Information 

Namaz salat prayer

Alert: Salat = Salaat = Namaz = Namaaz Don’t confused.

Definition of Namaz or Salat:-

The word Namaaz is also used for the word Salaat. The meaning of which is prayers & in shariath terminology it is a name of certain acts standing up, genuflexion, prostration, etc. (qiyam, Rukūʿ, Sajdah , etc.)

Preference of Salat:-

Salat is that prayer which is made compulsory first & it will be withdrawn first from this world & the first question on doomsday will be about Salaat.

No Religion is exclusive of Salah:- Namaz salat prayer

The Salaat was made compulsory on all the holy messengers of Allah right from the Holy Prophet Hadrath Adam (A.S.) to till date. However the number & mode was different. & now in Islamic shariat the procedure prescribed is most perfect.

Namaz Salat Prayer Information


Salat is the first & foremost regulation of Islam.

1. After belief.

2. It will not be an exaggeration if it is said that a Muslim is identified by Salat. The holy messenger (SAWS) said “The Salaat is the pillar of religion whoever protects Salaat he has protected the religion & whoever relinquished he destroyed the base”. He (SAWS) further said, The religion without Salat is like a body without head”.

Importance of Namaz salat prayer:-

Namaz is compulsory for a Muslim five times a day (whether rich, poor, wealthy, ill, resident or a traveler). Even when there is clash of armies & fierce fighting performance of Namaaz for Muslims is compulsory. A woman when laboring, a critical moment for her, & less than half of the body of her baby has came out even at that time there is order to perform Namaz & the delay is not permitted. The importance of Namaaz is further evidenced from the Hadith that even though it is not compulsory on a minor yet he is pursued to observe prayers. It is further decreed to punish the child for not observing the Namaz after attaining 10 years of age, so that he forms the habit of saying Namaaz. There are reminders in the Quran & Hadith at many places for observance of Salat. Salaat is quite compulsory on the Muslims & there is no escape from it till death.

The Consequences of giving up Namaz salat prayer:-

Huzoor (SAWS) declared that Salat maintains distance between a believer & unbeliever. Those who have purposely given up Salaat are turned an unbeliever (almost near about unbelief). He also declared that the Salat should not be given up because those who give up Salat will be cut off from Islam. There is no place for him in Islam. Whoever relinquishes Salaat he will be destined with Firaun, Qaroon, Haman, Ubai Bin Khalf (the inveterate enemies of Islam) on the Day of Judgment? After knowing these declarations one cans clearly understand the consequences & the results & his connection with Islam.

The Bounties of Namaz salat prayer:-

Salat refreshes the bonds of master & servant. It makes the life of a Muslim virtuous & polite & keeps him away from all evils. In other words Salaat is a fortress wherein no sin is allowed to enter.

Huzoor (SAWS) has further declared as follows:-

1. When a Muslim observes Namaz his sins are wiped out as in the autumn the leaves drop from the trees.

2. After taking bath in a canal five times in a day there will not be any dirt on the body, similarly by observing Namaaz five times one attains purity from the gravity of sins.

3. The minor sins committed during two Namaaz will be wiped out.

4. Everything is affected by fire but not the forehead of a person who observes namaz.

5. Namaz is the light (Noor) for a Momin.

6. A person who observes daily prayers regularly, the light (Noor) will be with him on the Day of Judgment & the Namaaz will plead for his pardon.

7. Namaz is the key to heavens.

8. No sooner the Namaaz is begun than the doors of heavens are opened. Nothing will create any hurdle between the person performing the Namaaz & the Almighty Allah.

9. Nearness to Allah is ensured in prostration (Sajdah).

10. In namaz, the observer of Namaaz makes deliberations with Allah.

11. Further it is said that “Namaz is my comfort & satisfaction”.

Principles of Namaz salat prayer:-

Definition of Namaz salat prayer:-

Salat is obligatory on every sane & major Muslim as individual duty (whether male or female) five times a day.

A person discarding the obligation of Salaat is an infidel.

1. Meaning ‘Fajar ‘, ‘Zohar’, ‘Asar ‘, ‘Maghreb’, ‘Esha’.


That means it is divine order & its compliance is obligatory on every individual, sane, major Muslim. This duty cannot be absolved if a few individual is performing it.

Relinquished of Salat (due to laziness & indolence) is the sinner of the first rate, punishment for it, according to Imaam Azam Abu Hanifa (R.A) is imprisonment till he repents (contrary to it the other imams (It means Imaam Malik, Imaam  Shafai, & Imaam  Ahmed Bin Hanbal (R.A.)) are in favors of death penalty).

THE RAKA’ATS Of Namaz salat prayer

There are five times prayers every day wherein there are 17 Raka’at Fardh (Besides these, the details of Sunnah & Nafil will come in future), 2 Raka’at at the time of Fajar , 4 Raka’at at Zohar, Asar  & Esha, 3 Raka’at for Maghreb & on Friday 2 Raka’at Fardh instead of 4 Raka’at of Zohar.

The traditional & desirable way of saying Salat is that after ablution, facing Qibla, dangling both hands keeping distance of four fingers between the feet, one should stand (In such a way that the fingers face towards Ka’ba) (with clean mind from all the worldly affairs with devotion to Almighty Allah(According to Hadith the Holy Prophet has said “An Tabudallah ka’annaka Trahu Fa’inlam Takun Trahu Fa Innahu Yaraka” pray to Allah as though you see Him & if you cannot see, the Almighty Allah is looking you. There is no doubt that one who develops such a feeling it amounts to fearfulness & submissiveness. Stand bowing head with polity & shame, with love & affection to gain His pleasure & to avoid His wrath)) & recite:-

The Correct way of Saying Namaz:-

“Inni Wajjhatu Wajhiya Lillazi Fataras Samawati Wal Ardha Hanifaun Wa Maa Ana Minal Mushrikeen.”

Translation: – “I have made myself attentive towards Him who has created the earth & sky & I surrendered to Him. I am not one of those who associate something with Him”.

Make invocation with the heart & tongue in a tacit or express way in order to maintain (unanimity between tongue & heart.)

The Niyyah (Niyyat) Of Fajar: – I say 2 Raka’at Fardh Namaz of fajar exclusively for Almighty Allah facing Ka’ba.

The Niyyah of Zohar: – I say 4 Raka’at Fardh Namaaz of Zohar exclusively for Almighty Allah facing Ka’ba.

The Niyyah of Asar: – I say 4 Raka’at Fardh Namaz of Asar exclusively for Almighty Allah facing Ka’ba.

The Niyyah of Maghreb: – I say 3 Raka’at Fardh Namaaz of Maghreb exclusively for Almighty Allah facing Ka’ba.

The Niyyah of Esha: – I say 4 Raka’at Fardh Namaz of Esha exclusively for Allah facing Ka’ba.

At the time of intention (Niyyah) raise the hands up to the ear lobules (in such a way that both the thumbs touch the ear lobules & palms facing Ka’baa while the fingers neither wide open nor closed), after Niyyah utter initial Takbir (Takbir e Tahrima) ‘Allahu Akbar’ (Allah is most high) & then tie the hands-on the belly(On the ‘Alif’ of Allah the hands are moved & on the ‘Ray’ of Akbar tie the hands) (the right palm is kept on the back of the left palm, while making a ring with the thumb & little finger catch hold the left wrist & the remaining three fingers are placed on the dorsal surface of the left hand) keep eyes on the place of prostration (Sajdah).

Then recite Sanaa (slowly) (O ‘Allah’ I glorify your purity, reverence & unity your name is very sublime & you are mostly revered & there is no God except you) then Ta’avvuz (I seek refuge with Allah from the evils) then Tasmiya (Begin in the Name of Allah the most Beneficent & Merciful) then Surah Fatiha (All praises be to Allah who is the Cherisher & Sustainer of the worlds. Most beneficent & merciful. Lord of the Day of Judgment. Thee alone we worship & thee alone we seek for help. Guide us to the correct path, the path of those on whom you showered your grace & not of those on whom your wrath has fallen & those who went astray)

After saying Aamin (Kindly Accept it) recite any additional Surah or three small verses of big Surah. (For example” Surah Kausar : We have granted to you the fountain of abundance. Therefore you must turn towards your lord in adoration & sacrifice. Your enemy will surely be cut off from all future hope”). After reciting the above while uttering ‘Allahu Akbar’ perform Rukūʿ (in such a way that with the Alif of Allah move for Rukūʿ & with the Ray of Allahu Akbar complete the Rukūʿ). In Rukūʿ hold fast the knees with handsby keeping apart the fingers; handsare straight & keep the eyes on the feet. Then say ‘Subhana Rabbiyal Azeem (My lord is pure who is sublime & full of honors).

Thrice or five times or more (in odd numbers) (This order is for individual prayer. If he is a leader (Imaam) he should not exceed the ‘Tasbihaat’ to the extent more than three. So that, the followers may not feel burdened. Therefore there are directions for the Imaam to minimize the ‘namaaz’ for the sake of ease of the followers).

Then saying ‘Sami Allahu Liman Hamidah’ (Allah has listened his praises who has praised him) stand (Qauma is to stand for some time before doing prostration) straight (Start standing with the ‘Seen ‘of ‘Sami Allah ‘& finish the ‘Ha’ of ‘Hamidah’ with ‘qauma’) then say ‘Rabbana Lakal Hamd (‘O’ my cherisher all the praises be to you) (now the hands are not tied but kept loose & Stand to the extent saying one Tasbih , then make prostration (Sajdah) (Bend on the Alif of Allah & on the ‘Ray’ of Allahu Akbar prostrate).

For going in prostration first knees, then hands, then nose & forehead are placed on the ground (the forehead is between two palms in such a way that the thumbs are in the line of lobules). In prostration all the fingers of the legs (At least one finger is to be on the ground; otherwise the prostration will not be lawfu) are rested on the ground, the arms are separate to the armpits, the belly from the knees, the hams with the shins, the elbows are kept away from the ground, the fingers of hands and legs are closed together & all towards Qibla, the eyes are caste on the nose, say (Subhana Rabbiyal Aala) (My lord is pure who is more exhausted) thrice, or five times or more (This order is also for individual worshiper.

Order of brevity is for the Imaam as described with regard to bowing down (Rukūʿ)). Get up by saying Takbeer (Move for standing on the ‘Alif’ of Allah & sit down on the ‘Ray’ of Akbar) (while rising lift the forehead then the nose & the hands) sit on the left foot & the right foot is propped up keep both the hands on the thighs (Right hand on the right lap & left handon the left thigh) (the tips of the fingers stretched up to knees) t he fingers by closing the little finger with other nearer fingers & by making a ring with the middle finger & the thumb raise the index finger exactly at “Laa ilaaha Illallaah”& drop it on ‘illallaah'(The fingers are kept in the same position till the sitting). Should be in the direction (Neither so wide nor so close) of Qibla. The eyes are on the laps, sit right till one Tasbih is recited (Jalsa is that sitting), and perform the second prostration (by saying Takbir) like the first one. So for one set (Raka’at) is complete. Get up for the Second Set (Raka’at) by saying Takbir  (for getting up do opposite to what is done in the sitting) Stand up straight, (while standing first raise the forehead then nose then both handstand both knees, need not sit on the legs & not to provide help, to the hands, from the ground).

After standing tie the handstand complete the second set (Raka’at) like first one, without saying Sanaa, Ta’wwooz but Tasmiya only, recite Surah Fatiha & any additional Surah which is not recited in the first set (Raka’at) e.g. Surah Ikhlaas (Say ‘O’ Mohammed (SAWS): “He is God the one & alone. God is eternal & absolute. Neither He begets nor He is begotten & there is none like Him) then perform Rukūʿ, & Sajdah, etc, & sit down as done in between prostration (That sitting is called ‘Qaida’), then recite Tashahud (All the praises & all our prayers monetary & physically are for Allah. ‘O’ Messenger of Allah peace & blessings be upon you further, peace be upon us & virtuous believers & I bear witness that, there is no God except Allah & Hadhrath Muhammad Mustafa (SAWS) is the servant & messenger of Allah) on “Laa ilaaha” raise (Raising the index finger is the tradition of the Prophet) the index finger (This is the particular way of following the tradition of the Holy Prophet) of the right hand After reciting ‘Tashahud’ recite ‘Durood e Shareef (1) (2) then Dua’ (3) & end the Namaaz with salaam on both right & left. (With an intention that is conveying salaam to the angles)(4) utter ‘Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah (5) first on the right shoulder & Alaikum wa Rahmatullah towards the left. One should move the head towards right & left, so as to enable the followers to see his cheeks from the back. The sight is on the shoulder only.

Notes 1. It is compulsory to recite Durood e Shareef once in the whole life (whether it is in the Namaaz or outside). & at the time of hearing Sallu Alaihi wa Sallimu Tasleema’ or hearing the name of the Holy Prophet (SAWS) for the first time in any congregation, it is obligatory & reciting it thereafter is desirable. The merits & excellence of Durood e Shareef will be explained in future.

2. (Trans.) O! Allah, shower your mercy on Hadhrat Muhammad (SAWS) & his family members as showered on Hadhrat Ibrahim (A.S.) & his family. No doubt all the praises are for you, because you are most exulted. O! Allah showers your blessings on Hadhrat Muhammad (SAWS) & his family as showered on Hadhrat Ibrahim (A.S.) & his family, no doubt every praise is for you as you are excellent.

3. (Trans.) O! Allah pardon me & my parents & my teachers & all the Momin males & females & all the Muslims males & females (Whether they are alive or dead), for the sake of your mercy & beneficent. O! Most merciful of the merciful.

Almighty Allah definitely I have surpassed in my sins & there is no one except you to pardon me. Hence pardon me with your grace & shower mercy upon me.

4. I hope that I convey my salaam to the angels who are here & there.

No matter if 1 or 2 verses increase or decrease. In the Sarah’s order of preference is to be maintained & it is to be remembered that one small Surah coming in between is not overlooked.
