Hello Iraqioud!
It's very simple.
Khana is the "verse". In general there are 4 khanas in a Samai.
Taslim is the chorus, or refrain.
Both khanas and taslims are composed in the "samai thaqil" rythem in 10/8, with the exception of the 4th KHANA which is always in a different rhythm (6/8, 2/4, 4/4 etc).
Khanas are always different from each other, and they explore different areas and modulations of the maqam. Generally the first Khana performs the main maqam without modulation, while the others perform possible modulation of the maqam.
Taslim is obviusly alway the same.
So, here is the typical SAMAI structure:
First Khana - Taslim - Second Khana - Taslim - third Khana - Taslim - fourth khana (ALWAYS COMPOSED ON A DIFFERENT RHYTHM) - Taslim.
I know only few exceptions to this structure, but as far as I know exceptions are very rare.
Please note that with the term "SAMAI" we might mean 2 different things: we may mean the musical form, or we may mean simply a 10/8 rhythm (specifically called "SAMAI THAQIL").
I hope this was useful!
