How to Perform Namaz

The way to offer Salah is:

Preparing for Namaz

Know the proper prayer times. The five required prayer times for Sunni Muslims include the dhuhr prayer, asr prayer, maghrib prayer, isha prayer and subh or fajr prayer.

Purifying Yourself for Namaz

Rid your body of najas (filthy substances). According to Islam, substances such as urine, feces, blood, vomit, pus and other bodily fluids are filthy. These substances must be removed from your body.

Performing Namaz

Say your intention to yourself. Being clear about the act of worship that you will perform is imperative to practicing Namaz. Each of the 5 obligatory prayers require a certain number of repetitions,

Completing Namaz

Stand up and repeat. After completing the first prayer repetition (rakah), which includes the movements and statements in Part 3, the entire prayer must be repeated 2-4 times.
