    What times of day to Muslims pray?

    Report bad ads?

    Jews have always prayed three times a day:

    Shakharit - Morning Prayers 30-45 Minutes (Some as long as an hour)

    Minkha - Afternoon Prayers (About 10-15 minutes)

    Maariv - Prayers after Dark (About 20 minutes)

    On the Saturday, most morning prayers will be about from 9am-1pm or so. And we pray 4 times on Shabbat.

    On Yom Kippur we pray basically all day straight with five prayer sessions which go for so long they overlap lol.

    So the question is: How many times do Muslims pray? Do must Muslims observe these prayers? How long are the prayers usually?

    Not really.

    Many Jews have all the prayers memorized by praying so long, but tiny little prayer books you can store in your pocket give you the prayers to recite. Theres also personal prayers, and there are mourning prayers, if you are mourning the death of someone (you recite them eachday for 1 year since loved one died.) that i did not include in the times i wrote.

    Just a clean place....Islam insists on cleanliness, so before praying, we do ablution, it remains until it is broken by many factors....

    Same thing in Judaism. You must pray in a clean place.

    And what is a Rakaat?
    Well a Rakaat is a series of actions done in prayer. If a certain prayer has 4 rakaat that means that the serie of actions (recitations, bowing down, etc ) will be restarted 4 times. (so after we complete one rakaat we start all over again). Some things change in some rakaat but I won't go to deep in detail so I won't confuse you. A single rakaat takes about one or two minutes depending on which part of the qur'an is recited.

    Re: What times of day to Muslims pray?

    Hello,

    As for the other part of your question: it is obligatory on every Muslim to pray 5 times a day, hence this is regarded as one of the 5 'pillars' of Islam.

    Can I ask what is Yom Kippur? Also, do Jews have a specific direction to face in prayer?

    Peace.

    What if this interupts your sleep schedule? Or do you adjust your schedule around prayer?

    Is that even true if a woman has an infant and is required to nurse every couple hours? It seems like it would be next to impossible in this situation.

    Re: What times of day to Muslims pray?

    Can I ask what is Yom Kippur?
    Yom Kippur is the holiest day, where we beg G-d to forgive us for all of our sins. It is one thing to say 'please forgive me' and another thing to actually ask everyone to forgive you, and ask them to help you change and make you into a better person.

    On Yom Kippur I would go to my wife, and kids. Ask them if I wronged them in anyway, and how I can fix it, instead of just appologizing.

    You fast for 25 hours (no eating or drinking) on Yom Kippur to show G-d you are sorry.


    Also, do Jews have a specific direction to face in prayer?
    Yes, towards Jerusalem.

    of course there are exceptions in some case... but you should usually try to make sure all the time that nothing interrupts your prayers...

    infant has the priority in this case... she should give him the injection, make sure every thing is fine.. and then pray...

    praying time only 10 -15 minutes and some time it's less than 10 min.

    there is some other cases such as traveling, sickness and war times.

    if you want we can speak about that in more details. just let me know.

    At the age of 13, you become a 'man' or 'women' when it comes to complying with all laws of the Torah.

    Therefore, when a Jewish women or man at 13 has a Bar-Mitvah or Bat-Mitzvah they are no longer kids, and they are now responsible to follow the laws of G-d.

    So the awnser is... at 13.
