5 Prayers in Islam

What are the 5 prayers?

Muslims pray 5 times a day. The names and times of the 5 prayers in Islam are as follows:

  • Fajr: Early morning prayer
  • Zuhr: Afternoon prayer
  • Asr: Late afternoon prayer
  • Maghrib: Evening prayer
  • Isha: Night prayer

Allah mentions prayer in Surah Al-Rum: ‘So glorify Allah, when you enter the evening, and when you enter the morning. His is all praise in the heavens and in the earth; (and glorify Him) in the afternoon and when the sun begins to decline.’ (Ayah 17-18)

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: ‘Whoever guards the five prayers, their ablution, their timing, their bowing, and their prostration, and knowing they are the right of Allah over him, then Allah will forbid him from entering Hellfire.’ (Musnad Ahmed)

In addition to this, whoever does wudhu and offers 5 prayers, their sins for that day will be forgiven.
