Method of Salaah (Hanafi)
 

Stand facing the Qibla in a state of Wudhu with a distance of four fingers between your feet. Now raise both hands and touch the ear lobes with the thumbs, the fingers should neither be too wide apart nor too close; in fact they should remain in a normal position and be facing the Qibla. At this point you should be looking at the place of Sajdah. Now make a firm intention in the heart regarding the Salaah that you are about to pray, to say it verbally is even better (for example, 'I intend to pray 4 rak'at for today's fardhh Zuhr Salaah', if you are in a congregation then add, 'Behind this Imam'). Now whilst saying Takbeer-e-Tahreema i.e. Allahu Akbar lower the hands and place them under the navel with the right palm on the back of the left hand, the 3 fingers in the middle on the back of the left wrist, and the thumb and the small finger around the wrist. Now read thana' like this:

Sana

Glory is to you O Allah ! I recite Your praises, Blessed is Your name, You are the most exalted and none is worthy of worship besides You. Glory is to you O Allah ! I recite Your praises, Blessed is Your name, You are the most exalted and none is worthy of worship besides You.

Undoubtedly, Your torment is going to overtake infidels.
