The Fajr prayer is performed before sunrise, Dhuhr is performed in the midday after the sun has surpassed its highest point, Asr is the evening prayer performed before sunset, Maghrib is the evening prayer performed after sunset and Isha is the night prayer. All of these prayers are recited while facing in the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca and forms an important aspect of the Muslim Ummah. Muslims must wash before prayer; this washing is called wudu (purification). The prayer is accompanied by a series of set positions called the rakat sequence which includes the following: bowing with hands on knees, standing, prostrating and sitting in a special position (not on the heels, nor on the bottom). Prayer is obligatory for all Muslims except those who are disabled, prepubescent, very sick, lactating, pregnant, menstrual bleeding, frail and elderly or travelling on a long journey and it has been estimated that roughly 49% of Muslims pray their daily prayers regularly. A Muslim may perform their prayer anywhere, such as in offices, universities, and fields. However, the mosque is the more preferable place for prayers because the mosque allows for fellowship. The chief purpose of Salat in Islam is to act as a person 's communication with and remembrance of God. By reciting the first Surah of the Qur 'an, as required in all daily worship, the worshipper can stand before God, thank and praise Him, and to ask for guidance along the Straight Path.
