You can pray in any language, in any time and place. Prayer is not always supposed to be formal. In those prayer you have to recite verses from the Quran , which must be memorized and recited in Arabic. Other than reciting verses of the Quran , almost all other prayers can be done with any language.
The basic forms of prayer are adoration , contrition , thanksgiving and supplication, abbreviated as A.C.T.S. The Liturgy of the Hours, the seven canonical hours of the Catholic Church prayed at fixed prayer times, is recited daily by clergy, religious and devout believers.
Becoming a Muslim You have to believe that there is only one God, Allah, who created the entire universe, and that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is his final messenger on earth. If you recite this, with total sincerity, in front of two witnesses, you have become a Muslim .
To begin the act of prayer , they say ‘Allahu Akbar’ meaning God is great, raising the hands to the ears or shoulder. Muslims place their right hand over their left on their chest or navel while in the standing position (this may vary according to the subdivision followed).
Prayer (salah; plural salawat) is one of the five pillars of Islam . Say Allahu Akbar and prostrate. When you are positioned fully, say Subhanna Rabbiyal A’laa (Glorious is my Lord, the most High) three times. Your forearms should not be on the floor.

Most Muslims can complete their prayers in three to five minutes , although pre-prayer ablutions, or ritual washing, can take almost as long. For each of the five prayers – pre-dawn, noon, afternoon, sunset, and night — Muslims have a few hours to make them, although some say prayers are best when made early.
Dua . In the terminology of Islam, duʿāʾ literally meaning invocation, is an act of supplication. The term is derived from an Arabic word meaning to ‘ call out’ or to ‘summon’, and Muslims regard this as a profound act of worship. This is when Muslims from all over connect with God and ask him for forgiveness and favors.
It’s great to make dua requests for general blessings like health or wisdom. That said, if you have a specific blessing in mind, spell it out plainly and ask for it. For example, you might say “O Allah, help me to perform well on the exam tomorrow that I have prepared for.”
