Hello, Salamu Alaikum,

Here is a describe for the five daily prayers, according to the vision of Islamic jurisprudence.

First, we must understand the difference between the rule in normal cases, and emergency cases.

When we talk about prayer. there is a rule for normal situations, and it changes when there are emergencies such as travel, war,  disease and fear.

In normal cases. (Rak'at) for each prayer is as follows:
Fajr : Two Rakats
Zuhr : Four Rakats
Asr : Four Rakats
Maghrib : three Rakats
Isha :  Four Rakats
this is as the Obligatory prayer (Farz).
