Muslim scholars speak of two distinct sets of acts for worship. One is usually gone through when the performer is either sitting, reclining or standing. This has been called "du'a" (prayer), the verb being"da'a" (He called). Another set of devotional acts is that which is accompanied by certain physical movement and prescribed recitations from the Holy Qur'an. Such a coordinated performance of bowings , prostrations, and recitations is given the name salah (prayers).
