1) INTENTION :-

The person should make Niyah (intention), The intention is made within his mind, so the person should think about the particular obligatory, optional or Nafl prayer he intends to perform. He should not utter the words of Niyah aloud, as this is not authentic or approved by the Prophet (pbuh).

Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book 01, Hadith 01).

Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab: Allah’s Apostle said, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intention and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.

2) QIBLAH (Direction) :-

Turn your face in the direction of Al-Masjid- al-Haram

(SURAH AL-BAQARAH 2 VERSE 144)

Wherever a person is in the world, he should face towards the Kabah when he is going to pray.The Kabah is in the sacred mosque of Makkah in Saudi Arabia. Facing towards Qiblah (Kabah) is a very important condition of performance of Salat. However, if the person is in a place such as a desert, jungle, unknown strange city or a place where he does not know the direction of the Qiblah, he should try his best to find out the direction of Qiblah from others. However, if it is not possible then he should use his judgment and face in a direction which he thinks is that of Qiblah and Allah will accept his Salat.

It is important to start the Salat facing the direction of Qiblah and it does not matter if his direction changes while he is praying e.g. in a ship, a train or an airplane etc.

3) TAKBIR TAHRIMAH :-

PROPHET MUHAMMED (P.B.U.H) USED TO RAISE HIS HANDS TILL SHOULDER SOMETIMES TILL EAR!!!

The person should start his Salat saying ”Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the greatest), Rasing both of his hands to the level of his shoulders, till earlobes.

TILL SHOULDER:-

Narrated Muhammad bin ‘Amr bin ‘Ata’: I was sitting with some of the companions of Allah’s Apostle and we were discussing about the way of praying of the Prophet(P.B.U.H). Abu Humaid As-Saidi said, “I remember the prayer of Allah’s Apostle better than any one of you. I saw him raising both his hands up to the level of the shoulders on saying the Takbir;

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #12, Hadith #791)

Narrated Salim bin ‘Abdullah: My father said, “Allah’s Apostle used to raise both his hands up to the level of his shoulders when opening the prayer;

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #12, Hadith #702)

Salim narrated it on the authority of his father who reported: I saw the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) raising his hands apposite the shoulders at the time of beginning the prayer.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #004, Hadith #0758)

TILL EAR:–

Malik b. Huwairith reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) raised his hands apposite his ears at the time of reciting the takbir (i. e. at the time of beginning the prayer).

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #004, Hadith #0762)

Wa’il b. Hujr reported: He saw the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) raising his hands at the time of beginning the prayer and reciting takbir, and according to Hammam (the narrator),the hands were lifted opposite to ears.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #004, Hadith #0792)

4) WHERE TO PLACE HAND DURING SALAH (NAMAZ) :-

Narated By Tawus : The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) used to place his right hand on his left hand, then he folded them strictly on his chest in prayer.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 003,Hadith 0758)

Wail bin Hujr (ra) says, ‘I prayed with the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and he placed his right hand over his left on his chest.

(IBN KHUZAIMA HADITH 479)

Wail ibn Hujr (ra) narrates, “I was present with the Prophet [salallahu alahyi wasalam]. He rose, went towards the masjid and entered the mihraab. He raised his hands with takbeer and then placed his right hand over his left upon his chest.”

SUNAN BAIHAQI (HADITH 2335)

Aqabah bin Sahban reports that Sayyiduna Ali (ra) commenting on the verse [So pray unto thy Lord, and sacrifice] explained, that this means to place the right hand upon the middle of the left upon the chest.

SUNAN BAIHAQI (HADITH 2337)

5) EYES SHOULD POINT TO THE SPOT WHERE THE FOREHEAD RESTS IN SAJDAH
(PROSTRATION):-

Throughout the Salat the eyes of the worshipper should point to the spot where the forehead rests in Sajdah. Dont look towards the sky.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said, “What is wrong with those people who look towards the sky during the prayer?” His talk grew stern while delivering this speech and he said, “They should stop(looking towards the sky during the prayer); otherwise their eye-sight would be taken away.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume1, Book 12, Hadith no. 717)

Jabir b. Samura reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: The people who lift their eyes towards the sky in Prayer should avoid it or they would lose their eyesight.

6) RECITATION BEFORE FATIHAH:-

There are several Du’aa which Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) used to recite before Fatihah.

Ali b. Abu Talib reported that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) got up at night for prayer he would say:

“Wajahtu wajhi li’lladhi fatara al-samawaati wa’l-ard haneefan, wa maa ana min al-mushrikeen. Inna salaati wa nusuki wa mahyaaya wa mamaati Lillaahi Rabb il –‘aalameen, laa shareeka lahuwa bidhaalika umirtu wa ana awwal al-muslimeen.

I turn my face in complete devotion to One Who is the Originator of the heaven and the earth and I am not of the polytheists. Verily my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; There is no partner with Him and this is what I have been commanded (to profess and believe) and I am of the believers.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 4, Hadith 1695)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 898)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 899)

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle used to keep silent between the Takbir and the recitation of Qur’an and that interval of silence used to be a short one. I said to the Prophet “May my parents be sacrificed for you! What do you say in the pause between Takbir and recitation?” The Prophet(P.B.U.H) said, “I say,:-

‘Allahumma, ba’id baini wa baina khatayaya kama ba’adta baina-l-mashriqi wa-l-maghrib. Allahumma, naqqim min khatayaya kama yunaqqa-ththawbu-l-abyadu mina- ddanas. Allahumma, ighsil khatayaya bil-ma’i wa-th-thalji wal-barad.

“O Allah! Set me apart from my sins (faults) as the East and West are set apart from each other and clean me from sins as a white garment is cleaned of dirt (after thorough washing). O Allah! Wash off my sins with water, snow and hail.”

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #4, Hadith #1245)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 896)

Subhanak Allahumma wa bi hamdika wa tabarakasmuka wa ta’ala jadduka wa la ilaha ghairuka.

“Glory to Thee,0 Allah,and Thine is the Praise, and Blessed is Thy Name. and Exalted is Thy Majesty. and there is no other object of worship beside Thee].

7) TAAWUDH :-

So when you want to recite the Qur’ân, seek refuge with Allâh from Shaitân (Satan), the outcast(the cursed one).

(SURAH AN-NAHL 16 VERSE 98)

”Audhu billahi mina shaitaan nir rajeem”

(I seek refuge in Allah from the rejected Satan)

This should only be said in the first Rakat.

The Sunnah is sometimes to say

“A’oodhu Billaahi min al-Shaytaan il-rajeem, min hamzihi wa nafkhihi wa nafathihi

(I seek refuge with Allaah from the accursed Satan, from his madness, his arrogance and hispoetry),” –poetry here refers to blameworthy kinds of poetry.sometimes he may say,

“A’oodhu Billaah il-Samee’ il-A’leem min al-Shaytaan.

(I seek refuge with Allaah, the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, from the Shaytaan…).”
_______________________________________________________________________________________

8) TASMIYAH :-

”Bismillah Ir-Rahman ir-Rahim”

(In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, and the Most Merciful)

(silently)

Qatada informed in writing that Anas b. Malik had narrated to him: I observed prayer behind the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) and Abu Bakr and Umar and ‘Uthman. They started(loud recitation) with: AI-hamdu lillahi Rabb al-’Alamin [All Praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds] and did not recite Bismillah ir- Rahman-ir-Rahim (loudly) at the beginning of the recitation or at the end of it.

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 912)

Ubadah bin As-Samit narrated:

“Allah’s Messenger prayed the Subh prayer, and he had difficulty with the recitation. When turned (after finishing) he said: ‘I think that you are reciting behind your Imam?’” He said: “We said: ‘Yes, Messenger of Allah, by Allah!’ He said: ‘Do not do that, except for Umm Al-Kitab, for there is no Salat for one who does not recite it.’” (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 1, Book 2, Hadith 311)

It was narrated that Ubadah bin As-Samit said:

“The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) led us in one of the prayers in which the recitation is done out loud, and he said: ‘None of you should recite when I recite out loud, apart from the Umm Al_quran (Al Fatihah).’” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 921)

Abu As-Sa’ib- the freed slave of Hisham bin Zuhrah-said:

“I heard Abu Hurairah say: ‘The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever offers a prayer in which he does not recite Umm Al-Quran (Al Fatihah), it is deficient, it is deficient, it is deficient, incomplete.” I (Abu As-Sa’ib) said: ‘O Abu Hurairah, sometimes I am behind the Imam.’ He poked me in the arm and said: ‘Recite it to yourself, O Persian! For I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) say: “Allah says: “I have divided prayer between Myself and My slave into two halves, and My slave shall have what he has asked for.’” The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: “Recite, for when the slave says: All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of all that exists, Allah says: ‘My slave has praised Me.’ And when he says: The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, Allah says: ‘My slave has extolled Me.’ And when he says: The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection), Allah says: ‘My slave has glorified Me’-and on one occasion He said: ‘My slave has submitted to My power’. And when he says: You (alone) we worship, and You (alone) we ask for help (for each and everything), He says: ‘This is between Me and My slave, and My slave shall have what he has asked for.’ And when he says: ‘Guide us to the straight way, the way of those on whom You have bestowed Your grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your anger, nor of those who went astray, He says: ‘This is for My slave, and My slave shall have what he asked for.’” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 910)

Narated By Ubadah ibn as-Samit : We were behind the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) at the dawn prayer, and he recited (the passage), but the recitation became difficult for him. Then when he finished, he said: Perhaps you recite behind your imam? We replied: Yes, it is so, Apostle of Allah. He said: Do not do so except when it is Fatihat alKitab, for he who does not recite it is not credited with having prayed.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 03, Hadith 0822)

Narrated by Abu Huraira:

The Qur’an is recited in every prayer and in those prayers in which Allah’s Apostle recited aloud for us, we recite aloud in the same prayers for you; and the prayers in which the Prophet recited quietly, we recite quietly. If you recite “AlFatiha”only it is sufficient but if you recite something else in addition, it is better

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 : Book 12 : Hadith 739)

Narated By Anas ibn Malik : The Prophet(P.B.U.H) had himself cupped three times in the veins at the sides of the neck and on the shoulder. Ma’mar said: I got myself cupped, and I lost my memory so much so that I was instructed Surat al-Fatihah by others in my prayer. He had himself cupped at the top of his head.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 028,Hadith 3851)

‘Ata’ narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira who said that one should recite (al-Fatiha) in every (rak’ah of) prayer. What we heard (i. e. recitation) from the Messenger of Allah(may peace be upon him), we made you listen to that. And that which he (recited) inwardly, we (recited)inwardly for you. A person said to him: If I add nothing to the (recitation) of the Umm al Qur’an (Surat al-Fatiha), would it make the prayer incomplete? He (AbuHuraira) said: If you add to that (if you recite some of verses of the Qur’an along with Surat at-Fatiha) that is better for you. But if you are contented with it (Surat al-Fatiha) only, it is sufficient for you.

10) AMEEN SHOULD BE SAID LOULDY :-

Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “When the Imam says: ‘Ghair-il- Maghdubi ‘Alaihim Walad-Dallin (i.e. not the path of those who earn Your Anger, nor the path of those who went astray Surah Faitha ch.1.v.7)), then you must say, ‘Ameen’, for if one’s utterance of ‘Ameen’ coincides with that of the angels, then his past sins will be forgiven.”

Narated By Wa’il ibn Hujr : When the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) recited the verse “Nor of those who go astray” (Surah al-Fatihah, verse 7), he would say Amin; and raised his voice (while uttering this word).

ABU DAWOOD (Book 3 Hadith 932 )

Narated By AbuHurayrah : When the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) recited the verse “Not of those with whom Thou art angry, nor of those who go astray,” he would say Amin so loudly that those near him in the first row would hear it.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 3 Hadith 934)

It was narrated from Abdul-Jabbar bin Wa’il that his father said:“I prayed behind the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) and when he started to pray he said the Takbir and raised his hands until they were in level with his ears. Then he recited the Opening of the Book, and when he had finished he said ‘Amin’ and raised his voice with it.” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 880)

Wa’il bin Hujr narrated:

“I heard the Prophet recite: (Not (the way) of those who earned Your anger, nor those who went astray) and he said: ‘Amin.’ And he stretched it out with his voice.” (Sahih)

_______________________________________________________________________________________

11) CAN THE SAME SOORAH BE REPEATED IN PRAYER ?

A person may recite a soorah in the first rak’ah and repeat the same soorah in the second. The evidence for that is the general meaning of the verse in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Verily, your Lord knows that you do stand (to pray at night) a little less than two thirds of the night, or half the night, or a third of the night, and also a party of those with you. And Allaah measures the night and the day. He knows that you are unable to pray the whole night, so He has turned to you (in mercy). So, recite you of the Qur’aan as much as may be easy for you”

(SURAH AL-MUZAMMIL 73 VERSE 20)

Narrated Mu’adh ibn Abdullah al-Juhani: A man of Juhaynah told him that he had heard the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) reciting “When the earth is shaken” (Surah 99) in both rak’ahs of the morning prayer. But I do not know whether he had forgotten, or whether he recited it on purpose.

ABU DAWOOD (Book #3, Hadith #0815)

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: A man heard another man reciting (in the prayers): ‘Say (O Muhammad): “He is Allah, the one.” (112.1) And he recited it repeatedly. When it was morning,he went to the Prophet and informed him about that as if he considered that the recitation of that Sura by itself was not enough. Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hand my life is, it is equal to one-third of the QURAN.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 9 Book #93, Hadith #471)

12) RAFAYADEIN (RAISING OF HANDS IN SALAH) :-

Narrated by Nafi’: Whenever Ibn ‘Umar started the prayer with Takbir, he used to raise his hands: whenever he bowed(ruku), he used to raise his han(before bowing) and also used to raise his hands on saying, “Sami a-l-lahu Liman hamida”, and he used to do the same on rising from the second Rak’a (for the 3rd Rak’a). Ibn ‘Umar said: “The Prophet(P.B.U.H) used to do the same.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 : Book 12 : Hadith 706)

It was narrated from Salim, from his father, that:

The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) used to raise his hands until they were in level with his shoulders when he started to pray, and when he raised his head from bowing he did likewise,
and when he said: Sami’ Allahu liman hamidah (Allah hears the one who praises Him)” he said: “Rabbana wa lakal-hamd (Our Lord, to You be praise)” and he did not raise his hands between the two prostrations. (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 2, Hadith 1058)

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that :

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) used to raise his hands when he began to pray, when he wanted to bow, when he raised his head from bowing, and when he stood up after the first two rak’ahs, he would raise his hands likewise, level with his shoulders. (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 3, Hadith 1183)

It was narrated from Malik bin Al-Huwairith said:

“I saw the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H), when he started to pray, raise his hands, and when he bowed, and when he raised his head from bowing, until they were parallel with the top of his ears.” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 1, Hadith 882)

It was narrated that Malik bin Al-Huwairith said:

Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab from Salim ibn Abdullah from Abdullah ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah,may Allah bless him and grant him peace, used to raise his hands to the level of his shoulders when he began the prayer and when he raised his head from the ruku he raised them in the same way,saying, “(“Sami a-l-lahu Liman hamida)”Allah hears whoever praises him, our Lord and praise belongs to You.” He did not raise them in the sujud.

MUWATTA MALIK (Book 003, Hadith 017)

Narrated by ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

I saw Allah’s Apostle opening the prayer with the Takbir and raising his hands to the level of his shoulders at the time of saying the Takbir, and on saying the Takbir for bowing he did the same; and when he said,”Sami a-l-lahu Liman hamida “, he did the same and then said, “Rabbana wa laka-l-hamd.” But he did not do the same on prostrating and on lifting the head from it.”

13) JOINING SHOULDERS TO SHOULDERS AND FOOT TO FOOT :-

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said, “Straighten your rows for I see you from behind my back.” Anas added, “Everyone of us used to put his shoulder with the shoulder of his companion and his foot with the foot of his companion.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1, Book 11, Hadith 692)

Abu Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace he upon him) used to touch our shoulders in prayer and say: Keep straight, don’t be irregular, for there would be dissension in your hearts. Let those of you who are sedate and prudent be near me, then those who are next to them, then those who are next to them. Abu Mas’ud said: Now-a-days there is much dissension amongst you.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 4,hadith 0873)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 4,hadith 0874)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 4,hadith 0875)

Narated By Abdullah ibn Umar : The Prophet (pbuh) said: Set the rows in order, stand shoulder to shoulder, close the gaps, be pliant in the hands of your brethren, and do not leave openings for the devil. If anyone joins up a row, Allah will join him up, but if anyone breaks a row, Allah will cut him off.

ABU DAWOOD(Book 002,Hadith 0666)

Narated By An-Nu’man ibn Bashir : The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) used to straighten our rows when we stood up to pray, and when we were straight, he said: Allah is most great (takbir).

ABU DAWOOD (Book 002,Hadith 0665)

Narated By Al-Bara’ ibn Azib : The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) used to pass through the row from one side to the other; he used to set out chests and shoulders in order, and say: Do not be irregular. And he would say: Allah and His angels bless those who are near the first rows.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 002,Hadith 0664)

Narated By Anas ibn Malik : The Prophet (pbuh) said: Stand close together in your rows, bring them near one another, and stand neck to neck, for by Him in Whose hand my soul is, I see thedevil coming in through openings in the row just like a small black sheep.

ABU DAWOOD (Book 002,Hadith 0667)

Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Umar ibn al-Khattab used to order the rows to be straightened, and when they had come to him and told him that the rows were straight he would say the takbir.

MUWATTA MALIK (Book 009,Hadith 047)

Yahya related to me from Malik from his paternal uncle, Abu Suhayl ibn Malik, that his father said, “I was with Uthman ibn Affan when the iqama was said for the prayer and I was talking to him about being assigned a definite allowance by him. I continued talking to him while he was levelling some small stones with his sandals, and then some men that he had entrusted to straighten the rows came and told him that the rows were straight. He said to me, ‘Line up in the row,’ and then he said the takbir.”

ABU DAWOOD (Book #3, Hadith #0885)

Narrated ‘AIsha: The Prophet(P.B.U.H)used to say In hIs bowIng and prostratIons, “Subhanaka- Allahumma Rabbana wa-bIhamdIka Allahumma-IghfIrlI.’ (I honor Allah from all what unsuItable thIngs Is ascrIbed to HIm. O Allah Our Lord! And all the praIses are for You. O Allah! ForgIve me).”

16) QAWMAH (STANDING AFTER RUKU) :-

After the perfect Ruku, the person praying should raise his head from Ruku saying “Sami’a-l-lahu Liman hamida.”

Narrated Abu Huraira: When the Prophet said, “Sami’ a-l-lahu Liman hamida,” (Allah heard those who sent praises to him)

DU’A QAWMAH:-

Narrated Rifa’a bin Rafi AzZuraqi: One day we were praying behind the Prophet. When he raised his head from bowing, he said, “Sami’a-l-lahu Liman hamida.” A man behind him said, “Rabbana walaka-l hamd hamdan Kathiran taiyiban mubarakan fihi” (O our Lord! All the praises are for You, many good and blessed praises). When the Prophet completed the prayer, he asked, “Who has said these words?” The man replied, “I.” The Prophet said, “I saw over thirty angels competing to write it first.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #12, Hadith #764)

_______________________________________________________________________________________

17) HANDS FIRST OR KNEES FIRST IN SUJOOD (PROSTRATION) :-

Narrated Wa’il ibn Hujr: I saw that the Prop(peace_be_upon_him) placed his KNEES (on the ground) before placing his hands when he prostrated himself. And when he stood up, he RAISEd his hands before his KNEES.

ABU DAWOOD…..(Book #3, Hadith #0837)

It was narrated that Wa’il bin Hujr said:

“I saw the Messenger of Allah when he prostrated, he lowered his knees before his hands, and when he came up he raised his hands before his knees.”

SUNAN NASEEI ( Vol. 2, Book 2, Hadith 1090)

The only one who narrated it was Yazeed ibn Haaroon from Shurayk. Nobody reported from ‘Aasim ibn Kulayb except Shurayk, and Shurayk is not qawiy (strong). Al-Bayhaqi said in al-Sunan (2/101): its isnaad is da’eef (weak). Al-Albaani classed it as da’eef in al-Mishkaat (898) and al-Irwa’ (2/75).

Other scholars classed it as saheeh, such as Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) in Zaad al-Ma’aad). Among those who thought that one should go down into sujood knees first were Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah and his student Ibn al-Qayyim; contemporary scholars who favour this view include Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz and Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalihl-‘Uthaymeen.

Narrated abuhurayrah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: (Does) one of you kneel down in his prayer as a camel kneels down (i.e. put his knees before his hands).

ABU DAWOOD (Book #3, Hadith #0840)

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:

“The Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) said: ‘When one of you prostrates, let him put his hands down before his knees, and not kneel like a camel.’” (Hasan)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 2, Hadith 1092)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 2, Book 2, Hadith 1091)

AL NAWAWI SAID :-

It was reported by Abu Dawood and al-Nisaa’i with a jayyid isnaad.

(AL-MAJMOO 3/421)

It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Irwa’ (2/78)

CONCLUSION :-

BETTER ONE SHOULD KEEP HIS HANDS BEFORE KNEES BECAUSE HADEET IS AUTHENTIC.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

18) FIRST SAJDAH (PROSTRATION):-

After the perfect Qawmah the person praying should move to perform Sajdah saying: “Allahu akbar” putting palms downwards on the ground below the ears. The knees should be brought downwards on the ground. His fingers and toes should be pointing towards Qiblah without spreading the fingers of the hands.

Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet (P.B.U.H) said, “Be straight in the prostrations and none of you should put his forearms on the ground (in the prostration) like a dog.”

Abu Huraira reported:

The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: The nearest a servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so make supplication (in this state).

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 4, Number 0979)

Abu Huraira reported:

The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) used to say while prostrating himself: O Lord, forgive me all my sins, small and great, first and last, open and secret.

When we prayed with the Prophet we used to say: As-Salam be on Allah from His worshipers, As-Salam be on Gabriel, As-Salam be on Michael, As-Salam be on so-and-so.

‘At-Tahiyatu-lillahi Was-Salawatu, Wat-Taiyibatu, As-Salamu ‘Alaika aiyuhan-Nabiyyu wa Rah-matul-lahi wa Barakatuhu, As-Salamu ‘Alaina wa ‘ala ‘Ibadillahi assalihin, for if he says so, then it will be for all the pious slave of Allah in the Heavens and the Earth. (Then he should say), ‘Ash-hadu an la ilaha illalllahu wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘Abduhu wa rasulu-hu,’ and then he can choose hatever speech (i.e. invocation) he wishes “

When he was about to bow, he raised them in the same manner. He then placed his hands on his knees. When he raised his head after bowing, he raised them in the like manner. When he prostrated himself he placed his forehead between his hands. He then sat down and spread his left foot and placed his left hand on his left thigh, and kept his right elbow aloof from his right thigh. Heclosed his two fingers and made a circle(with the fingers). I (Asim ibn Kulayb) saw him (Bishr ibn al-Mufaddal) say in this manner.

How should one (ask Allah to) send blessings on you, the members of the family, for Allah has taught us how to salute you (in the prayer)?’ He said:-

“Allaahumma salli ‘ala Muhammad wa ‘ala aali Muhammad kama salayta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka hameedun majeed. Allaahumma baarik ‘ala Muhammad wa ‘alaaali Muhammad kama baarakta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka hameedun majeed

“O Allah,I seek refuge with You from the punishment of the grave and from the afflictions of Masi,h Ad-dajjal and from the afflictions of life and death.O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the sins and from being in debt).” Somebody said to him “Why do you so frequently seek refuge with Allah from being in debt?” The Prophet replied, “A person in debt tells lies whenever he speaks, and breaks promises whenever he makes (them).” ‘Aisha also narrated: I heard Allah’s Apostle in his prayer seeking refuge with Allah from the afflictions of Ad-dajjal.

The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) used to say salam to his right and to his left: As-salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah, as-salamu alaykum wa rahmatullah (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah, peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah) until the whiteness of his cheek could be seen from here, and the whiteness of his cheek from here. (Sahih)

After praying for himself as much as the person wishes, he should end his Salah saying: “Peace be on you and the Mercy of Allah.” (“As sala’amu alaikum wa rahmatullah”) turning the face first to the right and then to the left, both times over the shoulder. This brings the two, three or four Rakaat of the Salat to completion.
