    Possible duplicate of Does the idea of prayer 5 times a day come from the Qur'an? – Medi1Saif Dec 21 '15 at 5:16
  • @Medi1Saif The question asks for reference from both Hadith and the Qur'an. It's not an exact duplicate. – Mohammad Sakib Arifin Sep 18 '16 at 9:59

    @MohammadSakibArifin I would agree with you and it is a community choice to accept or refuse my duplicate qualification. But IMO once we have a clear ruling in the Quran we don't need a backup from hadith and that's the reason behind my choice at the time. Also the question isn't a real new question and this is what i would qualify a duplicate. – Medi1Saif Sep 19 '16 at 7:19

Where in the Quran and Hadith is it mentioned that Muslims have to pray 5 times a day?

In Hadith.

A hadith narrated by Abu Dhar specifically mentions that Muslims have to pray five prayers a day. Narrated Abu Dhar:

...Ibn Hazm and Anas bin Malik said: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Then Allah enjoined fifty prayers on my followers when I returned with this order of Allah, I passed by Moses who asked me, 'What has Allah enjoined on your followers?' I replied, 'He has enjoined fifty prayers on them.' Moses said, 'Go back to your Lord (and appeal for reduction) for your followers will not be able to bear it.' (So I went back to Allah and requested for reduction) and He reduced it to half.

When I passed by Moses again and informed him about it, he said, 'Go back to your Lord as your followers will not be able to bear it.' So I returned to Allah and requested for further reduction and half of it was reduced. I again passed by Moses and he said to me: 'Return to your Lord, for your followers will not be able to bear it. So I returned to Allah and He said, 'These are five prayers and they are all (equal to) fifty (in reward) for My Word does not change.'

I returned to Moses and he told me to go back once again. I replied, 'Now I feel shy of asking my Lord again.' Then Gabriel took me till we '' reached Sidrat-il-Muntaha (Lote tree of; the utmost boundary) which was shrouded in colors, indescribable. Then I was admitted into Paradise where I found small (tents or) walls (made) of pearls and its earth was of musk."

In the Qur'an.

there is no exact mention in Quran that Muslims should pray 5 times a day, but you can fined that Resoul Allah Muhammed pray 5 times in many story from his companions, and that enough because not everything should mentioned in Quran
