“Watch over Prayers, and the middle Prayer, and stand before Allah submissively.”
Promised Messiah (as)
‘Do not perform the Salat as a mere ceremony, but observe it with the burning and melting of the heart, and supplicate continuously in the Salat. It is the key to resolving of all difficulties.’
‘Salat is a prayer which is submitted to God in travail and burning with a heart aflame, so that vicious thoughts and evil designs may be got rid of and a holy love and a pure relationship may be established and one may be enabled to keep God’s commandments.’
The result of true and real Salat is that soon the time comes when God Almighty responds to the supplicant and comforts him with his words. ‘

A formal Prayer consists of units. One unit is a rak'ah and more than one units are raka'ät. A formal Islamic Prayer is 2, 3 or 4 raka'ät depending on the time of Prayer and the kind of Prayer.
