As Salah (namaz) one calls the Islamic prayer, which is fixed five times daily at certain prayer times. The prayer follows a certain course and physical attitudes
(standing, bowing, shedding) and differs entirely from a dua (prayer of prayer).
In prayer, the Muslims turn towards the Qibla (prayer direction to Kaaba). The prayer requires a preliminary ritual washing of specific body parts (wudu, abdest).
Prayer times generally depend on the position of the sun, which can now be calculated astronomically. This means that prayer periods are covered,
within which prayer is to be performed. The beginning of a prayer also determines the end of the previous prayer.
In total, there are 40 recruits (prayer units) daily, 20 of them Sunna (on a voluntary basis) and 20 recruits (mandatory).
