What do muslims say in their prayers 5 times a day?

It is Ramadan, and inevitably my frequency of prayers has increased. I had to remind myself today of the meanings of what I recite in Arabic several times a day. Perhaps it will also be helpful to a few other people:

Words of Salat (prayer) with English translation

Warning: Arabic text written on this page is for your convinence only and not to teach you Arabic. It is your responsiblity to learn Arabic Tajveed properly from a local Alim. Remember you cannot learn proper Arabic Tajveed from internet or with help of any software, persense of an authentic teacher is a MUST. You must learn how to distinguish between similar sounding Arabic letters.


“Allah Hoo Akbar”
Allah is Great


“Subhana Kalla Humma Wa Bee Hamdeeka Wata Baara Kasmooka Wa Ta’ala Jaddoo Ka Wa La ilaha Ghairuka”
O’Allah! All glory is due to You, I praise You, Your name is the Most Blessed, Your Majesty is highly exalted and there is none worthy of worship You.


“Aaoo Zoo Billahee Minash Shaitaanir Rajeem”
I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed devil.


“Bimillah Hir Rahmaanir Raheem”
Allah, in whose name I begin, the Most Affectionate, the Most Merciful.


“Alhamdo Lillahi Rabbil Aalameen Ar Rahamaanir Raheem Maaliki Yaomid Deen iyya Kana Budoo Wa iyya kanastaeen Ihdinas Siratual Mustaqeem Siratual Lazeena An Amtaa Alaihim Ghairil Maghdoobe Alaihim Walad Dualleen”
All praise is due to Allah, the Sovereign Lord of all the universes. The Most Affectionate, the Most Merciful. The Owner of the Day of Retribution. O’ Allah! You alone do we worship and You alone do we beseech for help. Guide us to the straight path. The path of those whom You have Favoured. Not of those who earned Your wrath and nor of those who went astray.


“Qul Huwal-Laahu Ahad. Allaa-hus Samad Lam Yalid Walam Yoolad Walam Yakul Lahoo Kufuwan Ahad.
Say, He is Allah, the One. Allah is All Independent. Neither He begot anyone nor He was begotten. And none is equal to Him in any way.


“Subhaana Rabbi-yal Azeem”

Glory be to my Nourisher, the Most Great


“Samee Allahoo Layman Hamidah
Allah listens to him who praises Him.


“Rabbana Lakal Hamd”
O’ our Sustainer! All praise is due to You alone.


“Subhaana Rabbi-yal ‘Alaa”

Glory be to my Nourisher, the Most High


“Atthayyato Lillahe Wassalawato Wat Tayyebato Assalamu Alaika Ayyohan Nabiyo Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barakatoh Assalamu Alaina Wa Ala Ibadillahis Sualaiheen Ashadu An La ilaah illal Laho Wa Ashadu Anna Mohammadan Abdohoo Wa Rasooluhoo”
O’ Allah! You alone deserve all veneration, worship and glory. O’Prophet! Peace be on you and the mercy of Allah and His blessings. Peace be upon us and on virtuous servants of Allah. I bear witness that none is worthy of worship save Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is His chosen servant and His Messenger.


“Allah Humma Salle Ala Mohammadiyon Wa Ala Ale Mohammadin Kama Sallaita Aala Ibharima Wa Ala Aalay Ibarhima Inna Ka Hameedum Majeed. Allah Humma Baarik Aala Mohammadiyon Wa Ala Ale Mohammadin Kama Barakta Ala Ibrahima Wa ala Ale Ibarhima Inna Ka Hameedum Majeed.”
O’ Allah! Send blessings on our master (Hadrat) Muhammad (peace be upon him) as You did send on our master (Hadrat) Ibraaheem (peace be upon him) and the progeny of Ibraaheem(peace be upon him). You are, indeed, Praised, Glorified. O1 Allah! Bless our master (Hadrat) Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the progeny of Muhammad (peace be upon him) as You did bless our master (Hadrat) Ibraaheem (peace be upon him) and his progeny. Undoubtedly, You are Praised, Glorified.


“Allaa-humma Innee Zalamtu Nafsee Zulman Kaseeran wa Innahu Laa Yaghfiruz-Zunooba Illaa Anta Faghfirlee Maghfiratam Min ‘Indika Warhamnee Innaka Antal Ghafoorur Raheem.
O’ Allah! I have oppressed my soul and undoubtedly there is no forgiver of sins but You alone. O’ Allah! Forgive me and have mercy on me. Undoubtedly, You are the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

Or this one:

“Allah Humma Rabbana Aatina Fid Dunya Hasanah Wa Fil Akhirate Hasanah Wa Qina Azaban Naar.”
O’ Allah! Our Sovereign Lord, grant us good in this world and the world hereafter and protect us. from the torment of hell.


Allaa-humma Innaa Nasta’eenuka wa Nastaghfiruka wa Nu’minu Bika wa Natawakkalu ‘Alaieka wa Nusnee ‘Alaiekal Khaier. Wa Nashkuruka walaa Nakfuruka wa Nakhla’u wa Natruku Maien Yafjuruk. Allaa-humma Ei-yaaka Na’budu wa Laka Nusallee wa Nasjudu wa Ilaieka Nas’aa wa Nah-fidu wa Narjoo Rahmataka wa Nakhshaa ‘Azaabaka Inna ‘Azaabaka Bil-Kuffaare Mulhiq.
O’ Allah! We implore You for help and beg forgiveness of You and believe in You and rely on You and extol You and we are thankful to You and are not ungrateful to You and we alienate and forsake him who disobeys You. O’ Allah! You alone do we worship and for You do we pray and prostrate and we betake to please You and present ourselves for the service in Your cause and we hope for Your mercy and fear Your chastisement. Undoubtedly, Your torment is going to overtake infidels.

Many thanks to Islamic Academy for this information.

    • sean pardoe says:

      Dear Jake Cook I used to be like you and leave inane (lacking sense, significance, or ideas; silly) comments on sites like this. But then I started to read the contents and thank God I have now seen the light, and am preparing to revert to Islam imminently.

      I am ready to accept the monotheistic principals of Islam and accpt that Prophet Mohammed is the messanger of God and the last of the prophets.

      I have never been as happy as I am now and I no longer need to look for the answer to ‘why’ because after studying the Quran I now know the reason ‘why’.

      Lots of respect to you and I hope you find the path to the light. Your curiosity led you to this site, let’s see if you stop resisting that urge and do something about it – I have and I feel great.

    So basicly this is like the Our Father. God (Allah) is good and great. His plan is above all others. Forgive me my sins and this is what I need help with. So you pray what I pray in very simple terms.

  17. hydara says:

    thank you for helping out.

  18. Herman Johnson says:

    May all you Muslims be deported to a Sharia Compliant Country where you will be happy. That way you won’t be unhappy living with us Infidels and you can live under Sharia Law like you want to.

  19. Herman Johnson says:

    I have heard that Mohammad himself had sex with Bacha Bazi.
