The Zuhr prayer (Arabic: ?al?t a?-?uhr, "noon prayer") is one of the five mandatory salah (Islamic prayer). As an Islamic day starts at sunset, the Zuhr prayer is technically the fourth prayer of the day.[better source needed] If counted from midnight, it is the second prayer of the day.[better source needed][better source needed]
On Friday, the Zuhr prayer is replaced or preceded by Friday prayer which is obligatory for Muslim men who are above the age of puberty and meet certain requirements[clarification needed] to pray in congregation either in a mosque or with a group of Muslims.
It is also transliterated Dhuhr, Duhr or Thuhr.

Noon prayer. Second of five mandatory daily prayers (salat), containing four cycles (rakah). Performed immediately after the sun reaches its zenith. Given the restrictions of modern business hours, it is increasingly being performed in the workplace during lunch breaks. On Fridays it is part of the communal prayers (jumah).
