Lesson Essential actions of the Prayer, its Obligations, Nullifiers, and Dislikes
The Pillars and Essential Parts of Prayer
They are the main parts of the prayer that invalidate the prayer if not done intentionally and that which must be performed if left by mistake; otherwise, the prayer is likewise invalidated.
Pillars of the Prayer:
Obligatory Parts of the Prayer
If left out deliberately, the obligatory parts of the prayer will invalidate the prayer, but if left out by mistake, then the prayer should be completed, then two prostrations of forgetfulness are offered at the end of the prayer.
The Obligatory Parts of the Prayer
These forgotten obligatory acts can be made up with the two prostrations of forgetfulness
The recommended acts of the prayer are words and acts other than the pillars and the essential acts of the prayer. They serve to complement the prayer, and it is recommended to observe them. However, omitting any of these acts does not render the prayer invalid.
Two prostrations performed to make up for any deficiency in the prayer.
When are the prostrations of forgetfulness performed?
The prostration of forgetfulness can be performed at two different times for the person praying to choose from:
Acts that Invalidate the Prayer
Acts that invalidate the prayer and require it to be repeated.
Acts that invalidate prayer
Acts Disliked During Prayer
These acts decrease the reward of the prayer and make the concentration and awe of the Prayer disappear.
Because when the Prophet ﷺ was asked about turning the head around during prayer, he said: «It is a way of stealing by which Satan takes away a portion from a person’s prayer.» (Al-Bukhari, 718)
Placing the hands on the hips and cracking fingers.
To start praying with a preoccupied mind.
Such as the need to answer the call of nature or feeling hungry when attending the prayer, as the Prophet ﷺ said: «No prayer can be correctly offered when food is served before the person praying or when the call of nature occupies him.» (Muslim, 560)
