It is related that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) initially prayed three times a day face to Jerusalem. It is evident that this practice corresponds the Jewish practice.
The Salat prayer in Islam consists of a sequence of recitations associated to a sequence of standing and prostration.
Does anybody know whether Yemenite/Arabic Jews used to pray (or still pray) in a similar form, i.e. alter the position of the body (standing, bowing down, kneeling down, falling on the face etc.).
P.S. This question is motivated by my research of the origins of Islam, but only Jews or Judaists can answer this question. That is why I would very much appreciate an answer.
P.P.S: A negative answer from somebody living or knowing Jemenite practice that none such is related or practiced is also welcome.
