Prostration for Forgetfulness in the Prayer
Author: Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen
Paperback: 18 Pages
All Praise is for Allah, the Lord of all creation, and may He extol and send blessings of peace upon our Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, who delivered the clear message, and upon his true followers, his Companions, and those who follow them upon good until the Day of Requital. To proceed: Then many people are ignorant about many of the rulings concerning the Sujoodus-Sahw when it is obligatory upon them; others perform the prostration in other than its correct place; some perform it before the salaam (salutation at the end of the prayer) even in cases when it has to be performed after the salaam; others prostrate after the salaam even when it should be performed before it. Therefore, it is very important to become aware of its rulings, especially for the Imaams whom the people follow in their prayers, and who have therefore taken on the responsibility of following that which is correct and prescribed in their prayers, and of leading the Muslims upon that. So I wished to put before my brothers some of the rulings in this regard, hoping that Allah, the Most High, will cause it to be of benefit to His believing servants. From the introduction by Shaykh Muhammad Saaleh al-Uthaymeen.
