  • In Islam we have 5 daily prayers and we have dua (supplications)

    The 5 daily prayers are said at certain times each day and during these prayers we recite a chapter from the Quran, than smaller verses, with a prayer for the prophets ending it will the greetings of peace salutation.

    These prayers can be done at home, msoque, workplace or anywhere else except in the bathroom, and unclean places.
    Women and men are covered for prayers some wearing jilbabs that are similar to robes or they can wear what is modest for them mostly covering most of their bodies.
    Women cover their hair some observe more covering and may cover their face, feet and hands (wearing gloves)
    Men sometimes wear kufi cap

    We than have dua (supplications) that can be said anytime of the day. Before going to bed, waking up, before and after eating,etc

    We have Ramadan prayers done in congregation at night, Quran is recited alittle each night

  • Prayer in my faith is the way we talk to Yahweh. We pray according to the way we are taught by the Messiah Himself. With a, "halleluYah," afterwards.
