Namaz / Salaat

 

Salaat is the name for the obligatory prayers  which are performed five times a day, and are a direct link between the  worshiper and God. There is no hierarchical authority in Islam, and no priests,  so the prayers are led by a learned person who knows the Quran, chosen by the  congregation. These five prayers contain verses from the Quran, and are said in  Arabic, the language of the Revelation, but personal supplication can be offered  in one's own language.

Prayers are said at dawn, noon,  mid-afternoon, sunset and nightfall, and thus determine the rhythm of the entire  day. Although it is preferable to worship together in a mosque, a Muslim may  pray almost anywhere, such as in fields, offices, factories and universities.  Visitors to the Muslim world are struck by the centrality of prayers in daily  life.
