Namaz – In the religion of Islam, each of the five daily prayers considered to be a Muslim duty (the five are: bagymdat, beshim, digger, sham, kuptan). Prayers are made in the direction of the Kiblah, preceded by ablutions and combined with a prescribed set of bodily movements, which expresses submission to and faith in God (Kyrgyz Language Explanatory Dictionary. – F.: Mektep. 1969. 449).
