The aim of the present study was to find out the impact of regular salah practice on resting pulse rate. For the purpose of the study 10 middle aged men were selected from Masjeed Mahmood, Chidambaram, Tamilnadu, India as subjects at purposive random sampling. The age range of subjects between 39 to 44 years. The subject follow the Salah standing, bowing, prostration and sitting for five to fifteen minutes. The Salah was carried five sessions a day such as 5:30 to 5:40 (Fajer), 13:15 to 13:25 (Zuhar), 17:00 to 17:10 (Aser), 18:30 to 18:45 (Magrib) and 20:00 to 20:15 (Isha). The resting pulse rate in the redial of the subjects was taken by using a stop watch per minute. The test was assessed before and after the salah programme respectively. The collected date on criterion variable was statistically assessed for significance by using two-way factorial ANOVA. The level of significance was fixed at 0.05. The result of the study shows that there was a significant difference in factor A & B but not in the interaction on pulse rate due to different salah for a day.
