Common Errors in Prayer (SALAH) That MUST Be Avoided:-

1. Reciting Surat al-Fatiha fast without pausing after each verse. The Prophet (SAW) used to pause after each verse of this surah. (Abu Dawood)

2.Sticking the arms to the sides of the body, in rukoo’ or sujood, and sticking the belly to the thighs in sujood. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Let not one of you support himself on his forearms (in sujood ) like the dog. Let him rest on his palms and keep his elbows away from his body.” (Sahih Muslim) The Messenger of Allah (SAW) used to keep his arms away from his body during rukoo’ and sujood that the whiteness of his armpits could be seen (Sahih Muslim)

3. Gazing upward during prayer. This may cause loss of concentration. We are commanded to lower our gaze, and look at the point at which the head rests during sujood. The Prophet (SAW) warned: “Let those who raise their gaze up during prayer stop doing so, or else their sights would not return to them. [i.e. Lose their eyesight]. ” (Muslim)

4. Resting only the tip of the head on the floor during sujood. The Prophet (SAW) said: “I am commanded to prostrate on seven bones the forehead and the nose, the two hands [palms],the two knees, and the two feet.” (Sahih Muslim) Applying the above command necessitates resting the forehead and the nose on the ground during sujood.

5. Hasty performance of prayer which does not allow repose and calmness in rukoo’ or sujood. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) saw a man who did not complete his rukoo’ [bowing], and made a very short sujood [prostration]; he(SAW) said: “If this man dies while praying in this manner, he would die upholding a religion other than the religion of Muhammad.”
