One should offer the prayer of "al-Ayaat," and its method is as follows:
1. Make the Niyyah (intention) of offering the prayers as "Salat-ul-Ayaat".
2. One should say Takbir (Allahu Akbar)
3. Recite Surat-ul-Fatiha and any other Surah*
4. Then perform the Ruku'.
5. Then stand and recite Surat-ul-Fatiha and any other Surah and then perform another Ruku'.
6. One should repeat this action five times, and, when he stands after the fifth Ruku', he should perform two Sajdah, and then stand up to perform the second Rak'ah in the same manner as he has done in the first.
7. Then he should recite Tashahhud and Salam.
*Please note that a person is allowed to say Takbir and recite Surat-ul-Fatiha and then divide the verses of another Surah into five parts, and recite one verse or more or less, and thereafter perform the Ruku'. He should then stand up and recite another part of the Surah (without reciting Surat-ul-Fatiha) and then perform another Ruku'. He should repeat this action, and finish that Surah before performing the fifth Ruku'.
We ask the Almighty Allah to accept all your works and worships.
