Muslims use the words "dua" or "supplication" when referring to the common definition of prayers which is "reverent petitions made to God". Salah consists of the repetition of a unit called a rakʿah (pl.
rakaʿāt) consisting of prescribed actions and words.
During each posture, the worshiper recites or reads certain verses, phrases and prayers.
The word salah is commonly translated as "prayer" but this definition might be confusing.
The number of obligatory (fard) rakaʿāt varies from two to four according to the time of day or other circumstances (such as Friday congregational worship, which has two rakats).
Prayer is obligatory for all Muslims except those who are prepubescent, are menstruating, or are experiencing bleeding in the 40 days after childbirth.
