Prayer: Preparing to Perform Prayer

Muslims must observe specific rituals as part of their daily prayers. Before praying, Muslims must be clear of mind and of body


Islamic teaching requires Muslims to engage in ritualistic washing (wudu) of the hands, feet, arms, and legs, called Wudhu, before praying. 


Worshippers must also be dressed modestly in clean clothing.


Once the Wudhu has been completed, it’s time to find a place to pray. Many Muslims pray at mosques, where they can share their faith with others. But any quiet place, even a corner of an office or home, can be used for prayer. The only stipulation is that the prayers must be said while facing in the direction of Kaaba in Mecca.
