Preconds of Solah (27/1/08)

Munyatul Musolli 27 Jan 2008

Continuing preconditions of solah:

  • 8. Not adding any number of rukun fi'li (movements) to the existing ones.
Example: sujud (prostrate) 3 times would nullify the solah. This could happen if you sujud and your forehead falls on a sharp stone, therefore you raise your head a bit and put it down towards the side. This counts as 2 sujuds.
Said Ustaz Zakaria: Should you need to move, drag your forehead sideways, make sure you don't lift it.

Another category is moving any of the major limbs 3 times intentionally, such as swinging the hands after rising from ruku' (bowing), moving towards the front row in 3 consecutive steps. All would nullify the solah.

Said Ustaz Zakaria:
  • Moving 2 major limbs simultaneously would count as 2 movements.
  • Major limbs include the head, shoulders, hands, legs, the whole body.
  • Minor limbs include the fingers, lip, eyelids, ears.
  • 3 or more movements of minor limbs would NOT nullify the solah.
The last precondition:
  • 9. Do not do anything that would nullify fasting (saum).
Such as eating, drinking, inserting objects into open bodily cavity.

Wallahu a'lam
