How to perform the Salah?
The method of performing Salah is:
After performing wudu’, stand upright facing the Qiblah at a clean place, dressed in neat and clean clothes.
Imaan is to have faith in something and to proclaim it.
Then say niyyah (intention), raise both hands up to the ears and say Allahhu Akbar, then cross them on the belly below the navel. Put the right hand on top of the left one.
Do not look hither and thither while saying prayers. Stand with respect and full attention to Allah.
After crossing the hands, recite Thana, then ta-‘awwudh and Tasmiyah. Then recite al-Faatihah. After finishing al Faatihah, say softly “Ameen.” Then recite another surah that you know.
Then say Allahhu Akbar and bow for ruku’. In the ruku’, catch hold of the knees with your hands and say the Tasbeeh for ruku’ three or five times. Then, saying Tas-mee’a stand upright again and also say Tahmeed.
Then, saying Takbeer, prostrate for sajdah. Put your knees on the ground first, then hands and then place your nose and then forehead on the ground. Say Tasbeeh of sajdah three or five times. Then say Takbeer and get up and sit upright. Sit for a few moments and then say Takbeer and perform the second sajdah in the same way.
Then say the Takbeer again and stand up without putting your hands on the ground.
This is one complete rak’aat and the next one begins. After Tasmiyah, recite al-Faatihah again and add another surah
Then perform ruku’, qaumah (standing up), and the two sajdah. Get up and sit upright from the second sajdah and recite Tashah-hud, then Darood shareef and du’a and then perform the salaam – first turning your face to the right and then towards the left. Two rak’aat have been completed.
After the salaam, recite the du’a:
اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ السَّلاَمُ وَمِنْكَ السَّلاَمُ تَبَارَكْتَ يَا ذَا الْجَلاَلِ وَالإِكْرَامِ
