Muhammad Established the Salah

Muhammad established the Muslim prayer ritual, the salah in 622, consisting of statements of faith, recitations from the Qur’an, and a sequence of postures, including standing, bowing, sitting, and prostration. It is requirement to do five times daily and one of the five “Pillars of Islam.” The others are shalzada (profession of faith), zakat (giving alms), sawm (fasting), and hajj (undertaking a pilgrimage to Mecca).
