THE FIVE PILLARS OF ISLAM

Islam is the official religion of Dubai and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). All Muslims (followers of Islam) should adhere to practices known as the Five Pillars of Islam:

  • Shahadah – professing that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet
  • Salah (or Salat) – offering five daily prayers
  • Zakat – paying alms to the poor and needy
  • Sawm – fasting during the holy month of Ramadan (the ninth month of the Islamic calendar)
  • Hajj – all Muslims should make the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca at least once during their lifetime

Prayer time Dubai and all over the world vary throughout the year and are calculated based on the position of the sun and sunrise and sunset times.

Muslims can pray in any clean place, not just in a mosque. Most shopping malls in Dubai have dedicated prayer rooms. Prayers may be performed alone, but it is considered best when done with other Muslims.

Muslims must wash before praying (wudu). Prayer Time Dubai help you to find the perfect time to pray in all UAE based on our precision AI algorithm.

While praying they must face in the direction of the Kaaba, a cube-shaped building at the centre of the Masjid al-Haram (Sacred Mosque) in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

From any point around the world, the direction facing the Kaaba is called the Qibla.

AZAN

The call to prayer, azan (or adhan), is recited, by a special crier called the muezzin. Historically, the crier would have recited the call to prayer from the minaret of the mosque. Nowadays, many mosques have loudspeakers mounted on the minaret. The muezzin will use a microphone or play a recording.

SALAH POSITION

There are various positions while performing salah, which include Qiyam, Ruku, Sajdah and Tashshhud. There are numerous benefits in these actions such as:

  1. Qiyam (standing): It ensures proper blood flow to the lower portion of the body, strengthening the leg muscles.
  2. Ruku (bowing): This posture is good for the lower vertebral column. It relieves and prevents back pain. It involves stretching of elbows, wrists, knees and ankles, thus developing flexibility around all these areas of the body.
  3. Sajdah (prostration): The act of low bowing or prostration to God towards the qiblah. Sajdah maintains blood flow to the brain and stimulates the pituitary gland and pineal gland.
  4. Tashahhud (sitting posture): The posture is similar to the Vajrasana, a significant Yoga position. The position is said to strengthen the thigh and calf muscles, improve digestion, and keep the spine straight and erect.
