About the book:

This book contains the steps to perform salah, the translations and transliterations of prayers and short surahs that can be included in salah.

The writing of this book began as a personal project to curate the essential prayers that we typically learn while growing up as kids in a Muslim family. Somewhere down the road in our busy and anxious lives, away from our family elders, we start forgetting the core tenets of a devotional path. Picking up those threads proves to be unexpectedly difficult since the market and the internet abound with millions of books on complex topics but almost none on the simple ways of prayer.

It is the author’s hope that this simple guide on ‘how to pray’ would be helpful to those looking to begin or renew their spiritual journey.
