History of Salat in Islam

Prayer is the second pillar of Islam. It became obligatory in year two (2) of the Hegira, when the Prophet Muhammed ascended to heaven (Isra wa Miraj).

God commanded the Prophet Muhammed to pray 50 prayers a day, but Muhammed, the Prophet of Islam, came down to see Moses and told him the story of the 50 prayers and Moses said, "My people had to do less than that and they couldn't! Ask God to lower the number for you.

The Prophet Mohammed followed the advice of the Prophet Musa and managed to lower the number of prayers from fifty to five.

Prayer (Salat): One of the Five Pillars of Islam

"I have chosen you. Now listen to what will be revealed. Verily I am Allah: there is no god but I: I have chosen thee. Worship Me then, and perform Prayer for the remembrance of Me. "(Taha: 13-14)

Taking the time to pray five times a day is a duty for all Muslims and helps us remember Allah and our purpose in life - to worship Him. When we turn towards Mecca, we are united with all Muslims around the world facing the same direction (Qibla), and when we raise our hands to begin Salat, we put aside the stress and worries of life to remember our Lord.

When we pray, we communicate directly with Allah, and we are closest to Him in sujood, prostration.

This is one of the best times to invoke or dower - so the next time you are in sujood, take a moment to ask Allah to alleviate the poverty and suffering of all those we support in the world.

Prayer times in UK: direction of the Qibla

The direction of the Qibla from anglish cities is 118°.

Method of calculating prayer times or prayer hours in UK

The 18° angle corresponds to astronomical twilight. It is the one recently chosen by the Paris mosque to calculate prayer times in UK.

For the 15° angle, it is the angle that was adopted by the Islamic Federation of North America "ISNA" to determine when it is time to pray.

These differences in determining prayer times concern the calculation of the prayer time of Fadjr and the calculation of the prayer time of the ichaa. Each of these salah, depending on the sunrise or sunset, begins when the Sun is a certain degree below the horizon.

The time of prayers

Prayers are prescribed at specific times. It is not possible to pray to Douhr, Maghrib and al Fadjr before their respective times.

God said, "Prayer was prescribed for the believers in his time", [Soratha Annissa / 103].

God commanded the fulfillment of five prayers and made them the best of works after belief in God and His Messenger. He made for each of these obligations a known time for its beginning and its end. He made it obligatory on us to fulfill them in their times. These are the conditions for you to fulfill them.

Asoubh (Fadjr) : from dawn to sunrise.
Douhr : the time of the douhr, which is the mid-day prayer, begins when the sun declines from the middle of the sky towards the setting (15 min after the zenith) and ends when the shadow of each object equals its size.
Asr : is the mid-afternoon prayer, it starts from the end of the Douhr period until before sunset.
Maghrib : from sundown to the disappearance of dusk.
Ichaa : night prayer, it begins as soon as dusk disappears until midnight, or just before dawn.
