(i) There are five salat recognised viz. (i) Fajr (ii) Zuhr (iii) Asr (iv) Maghrib (v) Isha

(ii) The number of units (Rakat) to be performed for these salat is stated to be 2-4-4-3-4 respectively making a total of 17 rakat in a day. This rakah structure has been confirmed by Dr. Rashad Khalifa.

(iii) Another school of thought claims that there are a total of 48 rakah in the five different Salah at different times during day and night and this was stated to be propounded and put forth by Imam Abu Haneefa with the claim that this structure was in practice during the days of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):

(1) Fajr - 2+2=4
(2) Zuhr - 4+4+2+2=12
(3) Asr - 4+4=8
(4) Maghrib - 3+2+2=7
(5) Isha - 4+4+2+2+3+2=17

(iv) The verse (17:78) makes us understand as follow

By M. M. Pickhall –

“Establish worship at the going down of the sun until the dark of night, and (the recital of) the Qur'an at dawn. Lo! (the recital of) the Qur'an at dawn is ever witnessed.” (17:78)

The above verse clearly indicates that the Salat start with Zuhr (declining of the sun) and ends with Fazr (last part of the night).

If we arrange the Rakah Structure of the five salat put forth by Imam Abu Hanifa, as mentioned above starting from Zuhr to Fajr we get the structure – 12-8-7-17-4.

(v) Which of the rakah structure 2-4-4-3-4 or 12-8-7-17-4 is correct and to be followed and these rakah structures can be verified from Quran or not?

The proper prayers comprises of units. There are one and two unit prayers in the total proof group of prayer. I think there are two rakats that exist in the Quran, which can be found in 4:102, 108:2 and 17: 110-111.
