[1] The quotation from Imam Hasan Al-Askari in Arabic language:

“علامات المؤمنین خمس : صلاةُ الاحدی و الخمسین و زیارةُ الاربعین والتـَختم فی الیَمین و تـَعفیرُ الجـَبین و الجَهر ببسم الله الرحمن الرحیم”

[2]  Each prayer or Salat in Islam consists of  individual units called Rakat. Each Rakat is very similar to each other except some minor details.
