The noon prayer (Arabic: صَلَاة ٱلظُّهْر ṣalāt aẓ-ẓuhr, aka "Zuhr 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.
