I would like to know did all Previous Prophtes offered Salah in the same ways as we do now i mean like kneeling n bowing head on there anything mention abt this in Quran or hadith.

Here are some verses in the Quran where it is mentioned:
YUSUFALI: Those were some of the prophets on whom Allah did bestow His Grace,- of the posterity of Adam, and of those who We carried (in the Ark) with Noah, and of the posterity of Abraham and Israel of those whom We guided and chose. Whenever the Signs of (Allah) Most Gracious were rehearsed to them, they would fall down in prostrate adoration and in tears
YUSUFALI: But after them there followed a posterity who missed prayers and followed after lusts soon, then, will they face Destruction,-

YUSUFALI: And remember Abraham and Isma'il raised the foundations of the House (With this prayer): "Our Lord! Accept (this service) from us: For Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-knowing.
YUSUFALI: "Our Lord! make of us Muslims, bowing to Thy (Will), and of our progeny a people Muslim, bowing to Thy (will); and show us our place for the celebration of (due) rites; and turn unto us (in Mercy); for Thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

YUSUFALI: And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive, (with sincerity and under discipline). He has chosen you, and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this (Revelation); that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer, give regular Charity, and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector - the Best to protect and the Best to help!
PICKTHAL: And strive for Allah with the endeavour which is His right. He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship; the faith of your father Abraham (is yours). He hath named you Muslims of old time and in this (Scripture), that the messenger may be a witness against you, and that ye may be witnesses against mankind. So establish worship, pay the poor-due, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protecting friend. A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!

YUSUFALI: And We bestowed on him Isaac and, as an additional gift, (a grandson), Jacob, and We made righteous men of every one (of them).
YUSUFALI: And We made them leaders, guiding (men) by Our Command, and We sent them inspiration to do good deeds, to establish regular prayers, and to practise regular charity; and they constantly served Us (and Us only).

All the Prophets offered prayer as we can read in the verse 19.58, in the end of the verse it says:they would fall down in prostrate adoration and in tears.
The way we pray now or should I say the way we are suppose to pray is the way Prophet Abraham prayed,as well all the Prophets after Abraham..All the belivers after Prophet Abraham are required to pray the way God Almighty thought Prophet Abraham the prayer, as well God Almighty thought Abraham the rest of our religious duties.
God Almighty tells us in the verse 22.78 that our religion is "the faith of your father Abraham "Prophet Abraham is the father of our religion it is he who named us Muslims,as well God made our religion easy for us.
I hope this helps.
Thank you so much for the explanation..Jazakalllah khairan.
