Assalamualaikum, everyone. As the question mentions, what are the Niyats (in arabic), I have to make before standing in Salat. Please mention the niyats of the commonly performed Salats, such as: two rakats, three rakats (witr), four rakats or even one rakat (witr in another view) along with their meaning.

  • there is a book that mentions around 90 Niyahs for fard and Sunnah prayers. – Sohaeb Jul 23 '14 at 19:45
