In Islam, namaz and dua, prayers, are created and called for conversations with God. Thus, a person touches the Most High, the sky and grows spiritually. According to the orders of the Almighty, every Muslim is obliged to know and recite namaz, dua and sura are created to help in worldly and spiritual matters.
When is it customary to read Islamic prayers?
In the Islamic religion one of the most important actions is reading the prayer. It is believed that prayer is the connection of each person with God, so Muslims try to read it more often. Everyone wants to be as close as possible to the Almighty, to Allah. The Prophet Muhammad said that the best act of man is prayer. Namaz is read five times a day, it clears the Muslim from sins, strengthens the spirit and faith, and also protects from future sin and sinful thoughts. The people of the Islamic religion firmly believe that the first thing they will be asked about at the Last Judgment is whether it was the namaz read in time.
According to the accepted rules and traditions, before the namaz, ablution is performed. Only after this does the reader appear before the Lord. In the first morning namaz, he praises and honors the Creator, exalts, confirms His irrefutable right to worship. The reader asks the Creator, asks Him to show him the right path, and as evidence of the greatest loyalty and complete humility, he bows down to Allah to the earth.
Muslim prayers are sung exclusively in Arabic, only this language is considered the language of Revelation, only in it does a person have the right to speak with God. Also, according to the requirements, namaz is read five times a day.
Here is a list of prayers that must be read in the Islamic religion every day:
- At dawn, when the sun only touches the sky, the first morning prayer is read. It is called Irtenga;
- Exactly in the middle of the day, when the sun is at its zenith, the second, midday prayer is recited. It is called Oile;
- Between the middle of the day and sunset, in the evening, when the sun begins to move to the horizon, the third, evening prayer is read. He is called Ikende;
- At sunset, at the moment when the sun begins to go beyond the limits of visibility, the fourth, late prayer is read. She is called Ahsham;
- At dusk, when the sun is gone, the last, fifth, night prayer is read. He is called Yastu.
This rhythm is the rhythm of the life of every Muslim, his unshakable duty. He has the right to read namaz anywhere, in the mosque, at home, at work, on the street, in the office, it does not matter. Before the prayer, Azan is obligatory - this is a call for prayer.
In addition to the above, there are also conditions that Muslims must comply with:

- Sincerity and honesty. Every Muslim has the right to pray Salah only with an open heart and sincere desire, otherwise Allah will punish him.
Also important is the mind while reading, it must be crystal clear and clear. All psychotropic and burning substances under a strict ban in the Islamic religion.
What should every Muslim know?
There are certain prayers in the Islamic religion that every Muslim should know. So it is in other religions. People learn them by heart and use them as intended in their allotted time. In Islam, prayers are called namaz, dua, surah and are taken from the Koran. Namaz is read five times a day and is mandatory for Muslims all over the world. A specific time has been approved for each namaz, and wherever a person is, if he is a Muslim, he is obliged to read a namaz in the time allotted for that time.
Dua and sura are prayers that are designed to help someone with something. Suppose there is a dua for healing from a disease, a dua for attracting wealth, a dua for the evil eye, a sura for travelers, a surah for parents, etc.
The main Muslim prayers are namaz. Below are listed the fundamental duas and suras that will help a person in life.
For luck and money
A prayer to Allah for good luck and money must be read in the language of Revelation, that is, in Arabic. In Hadith Sharif from time to time, a prayer is held and read, helping all Muslims to get rid of debts, return the flow of funds to the family, improves luck.
For the convenience of reading, we will give a prayer for good luck and money as it should be read in Arabic:
"Allahum Falikal-isbahi va juillellela has been assigned to you-shamsa wal-camara husbanen and ikdi annid daina va anini minel-fakri va amtini bi-si va bazari va kuveveti fi stabilibu".
In Russian dua is translated as follows:
“Allah Almighty gives us a sunrise every morning and a sunset every night so that we can wake up and work and then rest. To divide the day and night, Allah has given us the Moon and the Sun, and now he demands from them. Oh, Merciful Creator, give me strength, give me the will and spirit, so that I can earn money to pay off my debts, so that I will not be poor and can live in prosperity. I will become a slave on your path, I will serve You faithfully, with my eyes and ears, with all my strength. (Malik, Dua, 495). ”
This is a free translation especially for those who only converted to Islam and still do not know the language so well as to understand all the prayers. After all, as it was written above, a crystal clear mind is needed for reading prayers, and for this it is important to understand what you read.
For protection from the evil eye and from other misfortunes, Muslims use both duas and suras. But besides prayer, there are also recommendations for protection from the evil eye.
Among the recommendations are the following:
- The beauty of man must be carefully concealed. That is why women and men Muslims so carefully cover their body with clothes. If a Muslim woman is not dressed in sharia, she does not fulfill the requirements of the Almighty. If she has something more open than her face, hands and feet, then she is easily exposed to the evil eye;
- Daily in the morning and in the evening one should read the zikr and the prayers of the Prophet Muhammad, as well as prayers 5 times a day;
- Children, brothers, sisters and wives should not be in places where they may be exposed to the evil eye. That is why young children and their mothers often do housework and housekeeping, so as not to go out again.
According to the legend of this dua, an angel came to the Prophet Muhammad, at the moment of his sorrow. The sadness was the sickness of the children, Hussein and Hassan. They were sick because of the evil eye. Then the angel told the Prophet effective words that immediately raised them to their feet.
The words of prayer from corruption and the evil eye in Islam in Arabic are as follows:
"Alahumma for sultanil azimi va manil kadimi hall of vazhil karimi valyal kalimati ttamamati da daavatil mustajabat afil Hasa-na va Husayn (mention the patient's name here) min anfusil zhinni va aiunil insi".
A free translation into Russian for a better understanding of the prayer:
“Almighty Allah protects man from damage and the evil eye, for man bows low, serves him with his whole being. Protect, O Almighty (name of man), from evil eyes that are envious and full of malice. As the angel keeps and protects, so also you preserve and protect us. "
In addition to protection from the evil eye, there are also special duas and suras for protection from various life troubles. The duas below should be read three times in a row. This prayer was given by the Prophet Muhammad to one sahaba who complained of a scorpion's bite. He said that it was difficult for him to defend himself and the Prophet wrote him words that need to be read three times in a row.
In Arabic, the words are as follows:
"Aguzu Bi-Kalimati Llyahi-t-Tamati Min Sharri Ma Halyak".
Translation of words into Russian is as follows:
“I defend myself with these words, the perfect and great words of Allah, from all evil and all misfortunes that He created and that surround me.”
There are a large number of Muslim prayers-protectors of protection, the described version is one of many.

Muslim prayer for reading before bedtime
In addition to the last namaz, which should be read at dusk, there are also duas and suras, which improve sleep and help in the coming day. A large number of them, so we in the article give only a couple.
For a good sleep, Muslims read the following prayer:
AlhamduliLlyahi allyazi ahy-na ba'da ma amata-wa wa ilay-hi-n-nushur!
It is translated as follows:
Praise be to Allah! He revived us after the slaughter, it is to Allah that a return at the end of life awaits us!
Also, before going to bed, there is a certain rite that every Muslim must perform. Like the Prophet Muhammad, a person before bedtime must blow on his palm three times, and then read three suras, this is 112 “Al-Ikhlas” (“Cleansing Faith”), 113 “Al-Falyak” (“Dawn”), 114 “An “Us” (“People”).
With the help of these suras, a person will be protected from shaitan until the morning. Repeating after the Prophet, one should wipe the whole of his own body three times from head to toe after reading the prayers.
