How to Make Intention to Pray (Niyat)

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

[In the Name of ALLAH, the ENTIRELY MERCIFUL, the ESPECIALLY MERCIFUL]

 

[All the information I gave here is collected from the book and I tried to make the Arabic pronunciations as much as right as possible, though I’ll recommend you to learn real Arabic pronunciations rather than reading it from the English text that I provided. However, if you have a problem understanding anything then please go to the Mosque nearby and contact the Imam just do not hesitate insha’Allah it will become easier for you. And remember words of Salah/Prayer/Namaaz has to be recited in Arabic, the translation I only gave here so that you can understand the meaning of what you are reciting; so that you can concentrate on prayer more politely, generously and submit your wills best way to ALLAH [S.W.T] as a most obedient servant should.]

“When you are performing Salah/Prayer/Namaaz that time you are talking with ALLAH [S.W.T] in private.”

May ALLAH [S.W.T] Be with you and Bless you and Help you to follow the straight path.

 

How to Make Intention to Salah/Prayer/Namaaz (Niyat)

Important Note

Remember a person can gain more benefit if that person performs prayers in a Mosque by following the leads of the Imam. Generally, Fard [Obligatory] prayer has to perform behind the leads of Imam; however, there are some exceptions too. When a person intends to pray/Niyat behind the leads of Imam; Intention to Pray/Niyat has to change slightly than that person’s intent to pray and perform prayer alone. In every intention to pray/Niyat you will find [Allahuu Akbar], it is not part of the intention rather it is a part of Salah/Prayer/Namaaz. That’s mean your Salah/Prayer/Namaazbegin the moment you say ‘Taqbeer-e-Tahreema’ [Allahuu Akbar].

[Note– If a person is unable to attend and perform Salat-ul-Jumua (Friday Community Prayer) for reasonable excuse then that person has to perform the usual Salat-ul-Zuhr (The Noon Prayer) as usual.
