You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help

 

 

“ And should those who worship me ask you about how far or near I am to them,
   should know that I am indeed near to them;

   and whoever calls me I shall respond to his supplication; (but) they must accept what I invite them to do,

   and should join me in order to be properly guided”.

You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help

Afternoon Prayer is in four parts

It should be conducted after Noon-Prayer or mid afternoon and before the sunset.

After Woo-Zoo (the structured wash up procedure), stand facing Mecca

 


The intent to pray should be remembered in heart. However, it is better to be said (aloud)
(Open your hands and bring them up, such that your thumbs are in the same elevation as your ears and announce your intention)

 I will perform four parts Afternoon-Prayers
