Praying

Muslims pray directly to God. Unlike in the Catholicism, there are no "priests" or confessions in Islam. Only God can forgive sins.  Muslims (men & women) are expected to pray 5 times a day, preferably but not necessarily, in a group prayer. The group prayer can be held in any location, it does not have to be in an official mosque. Muslims can pray, individually or as a group, anywhere which is clean (they usually use a clean rug, mat, or sheet), in a shopping mall, office, airport, park, lawn, etc. Prayers are in Arabic. They include reciting few verses from the Quran. However, Muslims do not have to learn Arabic, except for uttering few sentences and verses in Arabic.

On Fridays, Muslim men must attend a group prayer around noon time, in which they first listen to a sermon/speech by a preacher and then they pray. For women, attending such Friday Noon Prayer is optional because God understands that women may have children to take care of. Friday Noon Prayer is considered the most important prayer of the week. If performed properly by a Muslim, God may forgive the sins of this Muslim for the previous week.

The Islamic prayer is known in Arabic as Salat and in Urdu as Namaz.
