Perfom Salaah

Salaah in Islam is a unique institution. It brings man closer to Allah by harmonising his mental attitude with physical posture. In Salaah, a Muslim submits himself completely to his creator.

   

When you are sure that you have fulfilled all the necessary conditions for Salaah, you are ready to offer Salaat. A detailed account of how to say Salaah is given below.
