That's it. Not much more detail in the question.

If the answer could include usage in a sentence, that would be helpful.

They're exactly the same word. In Arabic, the word صلاة‎ (salah/salat) ends with what is known as a taa marbutah, which can be pronounced either as "t" (if it's in the middle of a sentence) or an "h" (if it's at the end of a sentence).

  • If I were saying it in English, would it's time for salah. is it salat time? be correct?

    @Shamoon Yes and no. Applying Arabic grammar rules to an English sentence is just confusing, better off just sticking to whichever pronunciation you prefer.

  • @goldPseudo is right that "Applying Arabic grammar rules to an English sentence is just confusing" , but assume in regard to ur question which asked "it's time for salah. is it salat time", then u'd better to say it by the letter "h (salah)" , Since its main word is Salah, then in case you add some word to it you ought to say it by "t" according to Arabic. So I reckon you cannot observe this grammar in English. Anyhow I think the response of dear goldPseudo is good enough to persuade you. Good luck. Mar 11 '15 at 11:28

    To be entirely accurate: ṣalāt all on its own is not correct in Classical Arabic: you need to add a case ending (ṣalātun, ṣalātin, aṣ-ṣalātu etc.). ṣalāh is the pausal form, which you use at the end of a sentence, or at the end of an ʼāyah in the Qur’an.

It is exactly the same, depending on the context of usage. At the end of iqama we use "salah", and in the middle we use "salat".

Basically according to my info. As much as I can remember, there wouldn't be any special difference between the mentioned words (Salah/Salat) from the aspect of meaning and their meanings almost are the same. But apparently there is a little difference from grammar aspect.
