I've been praying once a day on average lately. I don't do it exactly like other Muslims do it, but it is very similar. I don't believe that there is only one way to pray to God, but I find the Muslim way to be beautiful, and it's unifying that everyone does it practically the same way. Mine is slightly different, but I would be able to pray in a group with Muslims and not be doing anything different. I will describe how I do it here.
1) Intention to pray and number of units.
2) "Allahu Akbar" (hands raise to head and down)
3) Surat Al-Fatiha
4) I don't know any other parts of the Qur'an, so I leave it at that. I am hoping to learn Surat Al-Ikhlas soon. When I feel that I wasn't concentrating well enough on Surat Al-Fatiha, I repeat it.
5)"Allahu Akbar" and bend.
6)"Subhan ar-rabbi al-atheem" Not necessarily 3x. Just as many as I need, same with the translation. Sometimes translation in between. Sometimes all Arabic and all translation.
7) "Samia allahu liman hamida" as I go up. "Rabbena wa lak el hamd" when I am up.
8)"Allahu Akbar" then go down to prostrate.
9) "Subhan ar-rabbi al-alaa"
10) "Allahu akbar" as I go up and I ask in any way I want for forgiveness for my sins while I am sitting.
11) second prostration.
12) On the 2nd and last units, I say something to the effect of, "I believe there is no God but The God and that Muhammad was his messenger and prophet, to whom God gave the Qur'an for humanity fo guidance." I refuse to stop after "Muhammad was his messenger and prophet" because I feel it's too close to worship. And that the reason it's important to recognize Muhammad is because of the message he brought.
13) On the last unit, I say "assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah" to both sides.
I need to learn it all better and "tweak it". But at least I feel comfortable with this for the moment.
