Step 1
Start with a sincere intention to perform the prayers purely for the sake of GOD alone. Say to yourself (in any language) that you intend to offer this Salat [Fajr (Morning), Zuhr (Noon), Asr (Afternoon), Maghrib (Sunset) or Isha (Night) Prayer] and the number of rakats (example- "I intend to offer two Rikat of Fajr prayer for GOD").

This posture is called qiyam (Standing) and it is assumed after having made the intention to pray. Raising both hands up to the ears (palms facing the Qiblah"Allah u Al-kabeer" ("Allah is the greatest") ("ALLAH sab se badaa hai" ) is said.



Step 2
Next this position is assumed by holding the left hand with the right hand on top and following prayer (al-fatihah) is recited:
Al-Fatihah"Bismillah i rrahman i erraheem. Al humdo lil-lahi rab-bil al ala-meen. Arrahman i rraheem. Maliki yaum i eddeen. Iyyaka nabudu wa iyyaka nasta een. Ihdinas sirata almustaqeem. Siratal lazhina anamta alaihim, ghairil maghdubi alaihim, wa la adhdhaal leen."
"In the Name of GOD, The Gracious, The Merciful. Praise be to GOD, Lord of the Worlds; Most Gracious, Most Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment. You alone we worship, and you alone we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path, the path of those on whom you have blessed, not of those who have deserved wrath, And nor of the strayers."



Step 3
Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer"(the back & leg should be perpendicular to each other) this position is assumed as shown in the figure. This position is called ruku (bowing) and the prayers as given are recited (three times).
"Subhana rabbiya al azeem"
"Glorified is my Lord, the Great"
" Mera Rab (yaani ALLAH) her aib(burrayee) se paak hai , azmat waalaa hai ."



Step 4
Then start to stand up saying, 
"Samee Allahoo Layman Hamidah"

 “Allah listens to him who praises Him"  ("ALLAH TAALA ne uski dua sun li jis ne Us ki taareef ki")

 and then


 - "Rabbana Lakal Hamd" 

Start to say Samee when leaving Rookh (bowing poster) and end with Hameedah when you are fully errect. Wait a little.

Then having taken this position the second prayer is said: Say; "Allah u Al-kabeer"



Step 5

This position is called sujood (prostration). Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer" ("GOD is the greatest") one prostrates as shown and then the prayer below is said (three times).
"Subhana rubbiyal a'ala"
"Glory to GOD, the Exalted"
 "Mera rab her aib(burrayee) se paak , sab se Buland hai"
.


Step 6
Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer" ("GOD is the greatest") and rising from the Sujood position.



Step 7

Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer" ("GOD is the greatest") the sujood position is re-assumed and the prayer below is recited (three times).


"Subhana rubbiyal a'ala"
"Glory to GOD, the Exalted"


This completes one rakat.


Step 8
Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer" ("GOD is the greatest") this position of qiyam is assumed once again to begin the second rakah, and the following prayer is recited:
  1. Al-Fatihah.


Step 9

Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer", this position is assumed as shown in the figure. This position is called ruku and the prayers as given are recited (three times).
"Subhana rabbiya al azeem"
"Glorified is my Lord, the Great"



Step 10

While going back to qiyam position the first prayer, as given below, is said. Then having taken this position prayer the second is said:
"Samia Allah u liman hamidah"

"Allah listens to him who praises Him"
"Rabbana wa laka al hamd"

"Our Lord, praise be for you only"
Or just say; "Allah u Al-kabeer"


Step 11

This position is called sujood. Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer" ("GOD is the greatest") one prostrates as shown and then the prayer below is said (three times).

"Subhana rubbiyal a'ala"

"Glorified is my Lord, the Exalted"


Step 12

Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer" ("GOD is the greatest") and rising from the sujood position.



Step 13

Saying "Allah u Al-kabeer" ("GOD is the greatest") the sujood position is re-assumed and the prayer below is said (three times).

"Subhana rubbiyal a'ala"

"Glory to GOD, the Exalted"


Step 14
In this posture the following is to be recited:
"Tashahud"
Ashehadu alla ilaha illa Allah. 
" I testify that there is no god but GOD"



Step 15
Having said the above mentioned prayers, turning the face to the right. This following prayer is read:
"Assalam u a'laikum wa rahmatu Allah".

"Peace and mercy of GOD be on you".
Note: This Salam (Prayer for Peace) is directed to the angels and the muslims to our right and to the left



Step 16
Then turning the face to the left, the prayer above is said again:
"Assalam u a'laikum wa rahmatu Allah".

"Peace and mercy of GOD be on you".

This completes two rakat.
