The requirements for obligatory prayer called for in the Babi and Islamic
Dispensations were more demanding than those for the performance of the
Obligatory Prayer consisting of nine rak'ahs that was prescribed in the
Kitab-i-Aqdas (see note 4).

In the Bayan, the Bab prescribed an Obligatory Prayer consisting of
nineteen rak'ahs which was to be performed once in a twenty-four-hour
period--from noon of one day to noon of the next.

The Muslim prayer is recited five times a day, namely, in the early
morning, at midday, in the afternoon and evening, and at night. While the
number of rak'ahs varies according to the time of recitation, a total of
seventeen rak'ahs are offered in the course of a day.
