View Full Version : prayers

I've read about the five prayers in Islam. I was wondering if muslims pray in any other manner? Do you pray whenever you feel the urge to talk to God? Are the prayers always formal? Do you always recite verses?Reply
Protestant Christians don't recite scripture during prayer, or have a mandated method of praying. I was just curious. Thanks

Yes, we pray 5 times and also whenever we have the need or feel the urge to talk to God. You can pray to God whenever you want. You dont have to recite scripture in these other prayers either - you can simply use your own language and praise God, thank Him, ask Him for things you need/want, pray for other people - its your own words, basically.

There are optional prayers which are highly regarded in Islam too, such as a prayer called Tahajjud - which is usually prayed in the last third portion of the night, when most people are asleep.

Yeah we have to pray 5 times a day, anything above that is allowed, and the more you pray the more beneficial it is. Reply
We believe all Prophets PBUT payed like we do, from the text in the Bible it is implied Jesus PBUH prayed like us aswell
