Learn to Pray with Zaky

Aimed at children but great for adults ๐Ÿ™‚.

Zaky was a significant help when I was learning to pray and through following this video I was able to learn three Surahs from the Quran that are essential for your prayers, and also the other required parts of the ritual prayers.

This two Rakat form is the form y0u will use at the start of each day and in the communal prayers at the Mosque on Fridays.

Donโ€™t worry if it feels complicated at the outset, just follow the video at each prayer time and it will get easier. It took me over year to get to the stage where I could pray without using Zaky at all.

This two Rakat form includes all the elements needed to perform the three and four Rakat forms needed for prayers at other times.

Using this resource you will be able to follow the prayers in Arabic. I would suggest that headphones are essential if in a shared space. When at the mosque you will be able to follow the Imam and other worshipers during the main prayers but using headphones you will be able to perform the two Rakat prayers you offer before the main salat.

There are also resources to demonstrate the three and four Rakat forms.
