TRY TO AVAOID THESE MISTAKES, INSYAALLAH THE TRUE HAPPINESS WILL BE WITH US...
Mistake 1: Reciting Surat al-Fatihah fast without pausing after each verse.
The Prophet (SAW) used to pause after each verse of this surah. ( )
Mistake 2: Sticking the arms to the sides of the body, in rukuk or sujud, and sticking the belly to the thighs in sujud.
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: 'Let not one of you support himself on his forearms (in sujud) like the dog. Let him rest on his palms and keep his elbows away from his body.' ( ) .
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) used to keep his arms away from his body during rukuk and sujud that the whiteness of his armpits could be seen (Sahih Muslim).
Mistake 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 sujud.
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)
Mistake 4 : Resting only the tip of the head on the floor during sujud.
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 sujud.
Mistake 5 : Hasty performance of prayer which does not allow repose and calmness in rukuk or sujud.
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) saw a man who did not complete his rukuk [bowing], and made a very short sujud [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.'
(RA) said: 'My beloved friend, Muhammad (SAW) forbade me to perform postures of prayer copying the picking of a rooster; (signifying fast performance of prayer), moving eyes around like a fox and the sitting like monkeys ( i.e. to sit on thighs).' (Imam Ahmad & at-Tayalisi)
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ' The worst thief is the one who steals from his own prayer.' People asked, 'Messenger of Allah! How could one steal from his own prayer?' He (SAW) said: 'By not completing its rukuk and sujud.' (At Tabarani & al-Hakim).
To complete rukuk is to stay in that posture long enough to recite 'Subhana rabbiyal Aziimm wa bi hamdih' three times, SLOWLY, and 'Subhana rabbiyal a'ala wa bi hamdih' three times, SLOWLY, in sujud.
He (SAW) also announced: 'He who does not complete his rukuk and sujud, his prayer is void.' (Abu Daud & others)
Mistake 6 : Counting tasbihh with the left hand
The Prophet (SAW) used to count tasbih on the fingers of his right hand after solat.
Ibn Qudamah (RA) said: ' The Messenger of Allah (SAW) used his right hand for tasbih.' (Abu Daud). The above hadis indicates clearly that the Prophet (SAW) used only one hand for counting tasbih. No Muslim with sound mind would imagine that the Prophet (SAW) used his left hand for counting tasbih.
A'ishah (RA) said that the Prophet (SAW) used his left hand only for Istinja', or cleaning himself after responding to the call of nature. He never used it for tasbih.
Yasirah (RA) reported: The Prophet (SAW) commanded women to count tasbih on their fingers.
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: 'They (the fingers) will be made to speak, and will be questioned (on the Day of Resurrection. )' (At-Tirmizi) ..
The above Hadis indicates that it is preferable to count tasbeeh on the fingers of the right hand than to do so on masbahah (rosary).
Mistake 7 : Crossing in front of a praying person.
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) warned: 'Were the one who crosses in front of a praying person to know the consequences of doing so, he would have waited for *forty better than to cross in front of him.' (Sahih Bukhari and Muslim). *The forty in the tradition may be day's months or even years. Allah knows best.
