Namaz refers to the daily prayers of Islam. All Muslims have a duty to offer daily prayers at set times, and these acts of prayer are regarded as one of the foremost, one of the most sacred, and the one of the most honourable duties a Muslim has. The prayers are said in Arabic, and have remained unchanged from the days of Muhammad. A Muslim is required to offer the prayers wherever they are, and it is regarded as dishonourable and shameful conduct to miss even a single prayer.

One of the five pillars of Islam—Allah (God), Namaz (prayer), Zakaat (charity), Roza (fast), and Haj (pilgrimage to Mecca)—so that the faithful work on the straight path, undevious, direct and explicit. The Qoran abjures the faithful to 'be constant' in prayer, at least five times a day—on rising, at noon, in afternoon, after sunset and before retiring—if not oftener. The real Namaz consists in attuning oneself with Ism-i-azam or the Great Name.
