salat 101

OK, so I've finally started praying, after a long time trying. You try learning a bazillion words in another language and committing to doing so 5x a day! In any event, it's going ok, although I'm still confused about about when to put my arms up, when to say "Allahu akbar", etc., and my husband (who's a muslim by birth, not by conversion) still looks at me warily, afraid that one of these days I'll show up with a veil. That's about as likely as a blizzard in the Sahara... oh well, gotta go, hear the adhan...time to pray, again.
