A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE ON HOW TO PERFORM PRAYER

  1.  Prepare for Prayer
    • Ensure the area is clean and free of impurities.This includes your body, your clothes, and the place of prayer itself.
    • Face the Qibla.This is the direction all Muslims face to turn in prayer toward Kabah.
    • Pray at the proper time.The five prayers of each day take place at very specific times. For each one, there is a brief period of time it can be performed, determined by the rising and falling of the sun.
  1. Performing the Muslim Prayers:                                                                                                                                                                                   
    • Make your intention known in your heart.Before initiating the salat, it is important that your intention be known and understood.
    • Raise your hands up to your ears and say in a moderate tone “Allah – Akbar (الله أَكْبَر).” This translates to, “Allah is the greatest.” Do this while standing.
    • Place your right hand over your left hand on your navel and keep your eyes focused on the place you are standing.Do not let your eyes wander.
      1. Recite Isteftah Dua (opening prayer):
        subhanakal-lahumma
        wabihamdika watabarakas-muka wataaaala
        judduka wala ilaha ghayruk.
        a’auodu billaahi minash-shaytaanir rajeem
        bis-millaahir rahmaanir raheem
      2. Follow it with the opening chapter of the Qu’ran, the Surah Al- Fatiha (this Surah is recited in each Rak’ah):al-hamdu lillaahi
        rabbil’aalameen
        arrahmaanir raheem maaliki yawmideen
        iyyaaka na-budo wa-iyyaaka nasta’een
        ihdinassiraatalmustaqeem
        siraatalladheena an’amta alayhim
        ghayril maghduobi’alayhim
        waladduaaalleen
        ameen
      3. You can also recite any other surah or any part of Qu’ran such as:
        Bis-millaahir rahmaanir raheem
        Qul huwal-lahu ahad alluhus-samad
        Lam yalid wa lam yulad
        Wa lam yakul-lahu kuhuwan ahad
    • Bow down.While bowing, say “Allah – Akbar.” Bow your body so that your back and neck are straight and level with the ground, keeping your eyes there. Your back and head should be in a 90 degree angle with your legs. This position is called “ruku’.Once you are bent to the proper angle, say, “Subhanna – Rabbeyal – Azzem – wa – Bi – haamdeh” three times. This translates to, “Glorious is my Lord, the most great.”
    • Stand back up (raise from ruku’).Whilst rising up recite “Sameya – Allahu –     leman – Hameda with your arms beside you.”This means, “Allah hears those who praise Him. O our Lord, and all praise is to you.” Whilst standing up recite Rabana
      Walakal Hamd once.
    • Go down and place your head, knees and hands on the floor. This is the position called “sajdah.” Whilst doing that say, “Allah – Akbar.” When you are positioned fully,  say “Subhanna – Rabbeyal – Alla – wal – Bi – haamdee” three times.
    • Rise from sajdah and sit on your knees.Place your left foot from ball to heel on the foor. Your right foot should be toes on the floor only. Place your hands flat on your knees. Recite “Rab-ig – Figr – Lee, Wa-ar – haam – ni, Waj – bur – nii, Wa-ar – faa – nii, Wa-ar – zuq – nii, Wah – dee – nee, Waa – Aafee – nii, Waa – fuu – annii.” This means “Lord, forgive me.” .Return to sajda and, just as before, say “Subhanna – Rabbeyal – Alla – wal – Bi – haamdee” three times.
    • Arise from sajda.Stand up and say, “”Allah – Akbar.” You have completed 1 Rakat. Depending on the time of day, you may need to complete up to three more.In every second rakaat, after second sajda, sit on your knee again and recite “Atta – hiyyatul – Muba – rakaatush – shola – waa – tuth thaa – yi – batu – lillaah, Assa – laamu – alaika – ayyuhan – nabiyyu warah – matullaahi – wabaa – rakaatuh, Assaa – laamu – alaina – wa alaa – ibaadil – laahish – sho – le – heen. Asyhadu – allaa – ilaaha – illallaah, Wa – asyhadu – anna Muhammadan rasuul – lullaah. Allah – humma – sholli – alaa – Muhammad – wa – ala – aali – Muhammad.” This is called “tashahhud.”
    • Terminate the prayers with as-salaam.After the tashahhud, pray to Allah before signing off with these movements and words:Turn your head to the right and say, “As Salam Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu’.” The angel who records your good deeds is to this side.Turn your head to the left and say, “As Salam Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu’.” The angel who records your wrongful deeds is to this side. The prayers have ended!

Sometimes, we can’t measure what we need, so we invent a proxy, something that’s much easier to measure and stands in as an approximation.

TV advertisers, for example, could never tell which viewers would be impacted by an ad, so instead, they measured how many people saw it. Or a model might not be able to measure beauty, but a bathroom scale was a handy stand in.

A business person might choose cash in the bank as a measure of his success at his craft, and a book publisher, unable to easily figure out if the right people are engaging with a book, might rely instead on a rank on a single bestseller list. One last example: the non-profit that uses money raised as a proxy for difference made.

You’ve already guessed the problem. Once you find the simple proxy and decide to make it go up, there are lots of available tactics that have nothing at all to do with improving the very thing you set out to achieve in the first place. When we fall in love with a proxy, we spend our time improving the proxy instead of focusing on our original (more important) goal instead.

Gaming the system is never the goal. The goal is the goal.

As a Web professional, you can get great inspiration from a good conference session. While conferences may not bring value to all industries

The Web industry is stacked high with inspirational experts and quiet little geniuses beavering away from small home offices. A good Web conference shines a light on these clever souls and promotes professional growth and shared knowledge.

The number of conferences surrounding the Web design and development field continues to grow as new processes, techniques and other shared experiences, turned learning opportunities, are always presenting themselves throughout the industry. The problem becomes, with so many conferences that are out of reach for one reason or another, how does one catch the highlights from the conference that won’t fit into a 140 character tweet?

When it comes to responsive design, it’s not just about fluid images or adaptive layouts. It’s also about the responsive methodology behind the entire design process.

In responsive design, we are creating responsive experiences, meaning that all design components need to be able to adapt to the environment in which they are displayed and have to interact with. This is why we create tables, navigation menus, videos and other design elements responsive as well. It just makes sense to consider each and every design component — including the image slider.

Flexslider which has been created, developed and maintained by Tyler Smith and released for Smashing Magazine. Is used in this post.
