    "For Salat we should have intention. If any person does not have intention while performing prayer, his Salat will not be accepted." I'm afraid the rest is unintelligible to me. Can you rephrase it?

    What is "intention"? You have used the word four times.
    Those are Arabic words, which should be capitalized, written in italic or inverted commas ("salat") so as not to mix them up with English words.

    tedmc, do you really not know what "intention" means?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I mean, what intention does the OP mean? How do you "make intention"?

    bhaisahab already corrected it to the more natural "have intention". I have done yoga classes in the past and yoga teachers frequently talk about moving into the different postures "with intention". It encourages you to concentrate on what it is you want/mean/intend to do, not doing it mindlessly. I guess the same goes for "salat" (I don't know what it is).

    Who are you writing this for? Is it for a specialist or non-specialist audience?
