Look at how the Jews pray !!
And the Muslims, by falling on thier faces ..
One thing many people don’t understand is that Islam did not simply start with the prophet Muhammad, rather the religion of Islam was perfected with the coming and ending of Prophet Muhammad’s mission. Islam was taught by every single prophet that came before the prophet Muhammad, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus all taught and preached Islam. Including the other many prophets such as Jacob, Ishmael, Joseph, and Isaac! And all the prophets prayed as the Muslim today pray, of course this include Jesus and his disciples.
If the Christians and the Jews look at how the prophets had prayed in the torah and the gospel, they will find themselves praying like the Muslims.
Now we will compare the prayer of the Muslims with the prophets in the bible..
Let us begin:
-Muslims (those who submit to the will of God) perform ablution before prayer.
Then David arose from the earth and washed and anointed himself and changed his clothes. And he went into the house of the LORD and worshiped (Samuel 12:20)
They shall wash their hands and their feet (Exodus 30:21)
31with which Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet. (Exodus 40:31)
-The first position of prayer, Muslims lift up their hands palms out at the side of the head .

in your name I will lift up my hands. (Psalm 63:4)
And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God, and all the people answered,(A) “Amen, Amen,”(B) lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground.(Nehemiah 8:6)
-Muslims while lifting up their hands proclaim: “God is Great”
Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised
in the city of our God!
