Salam Alaikum! I am a new converted Muslim. I just moved to California with my husband from Virginia where I was born and spent my life. I know there are certain expectations of how many rakkah to do during prayer when traveling and my husband told me if you are traveling that there is a different amount you are to do. Do I qualify to do this since I am not at home? I am a beginner just learning al Fatiha. Also, what can I say instead of the whole verse of al fatiha to fulfill my prayer I know some lines but not all of it I want my pronunciation to be perfect the way it should be. Please let me know what you think. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Jazak allah kheir. Alhamdulilah! Mashallah this app is very exciting. Thank you! Emily Carson

Wa aleykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. If you are a traveller, you should perform Dhuhr, Asr and Isha as two rakaats. 'Traveller' means that you are in the journey travelling to the place that is in 88,8 km from your home or even more. If you hadn't yet memorized Fatiha, you can recite ayahs that you memorized or say 'SubhanAllah'.
