A Lecture On Lengthening The Last Sujood Of Solaat

06 Jan

It was asked: Oh noble Shaykh! Some
people used to lengthen the prostration
in the last unit of the prayer, so they
grasped it for making duaa’ from the
rest of other prostrations, and
sometimes the Imaam does while we
followers behind observed this; what is
the ruling on this?
Shaykh Abdulazeez Bn Baaz
(RahimahuLlaah) answered saying: We
do not know of any evidence upon the
establishment of lengthening the last
sujood (prostration) of the prayer.
Indeed the sunnah is that the sujood
(prostrations) should be in accordance
and it shouldn’t be stressed upon the
people. Indeed the prostrations of the
one observing solaat should be
moderate and sequential; this should
also be applied to his rukuu’u (bowing);
and his standings on the prayer.
So, he elongates in the first and second
unit of the prayer, and he maintains
moderation in his prostration; and he
does not lengthens the prostration on
the people such that it brings difficulty
on them. This should also be applied to
applied to the third and fourth units of
the prayer in solaatu dhuhr, asr and
Ishaa. So, he recites sooratul faatihah,
then he bows in a moderate bowing
that shouldn’t be lengthened and he
moderately do this without elongating it
on the people; this should also applied
to the prostration, all of it in the same
Meanwhile, there should be tranquility
(sequential rest) in these procedures
with moderation devoid of hastiness,
but the one observing prayer should
never select the last sujood
(prostration) such that he lengthens it
(by adding to it) because this is not
proven in the sunnah. Indeed the
observer of the prayer is commanded
upon tranquility devoid of hastiness in
all of his prayers, in his standing, he
observes humility in his recitation and
he avoids hastiness; in his bowing, he
observes humility and avoids hastiness,
and in his rising after bowing, he
maintains moderation with tranquility,
and he is never in a haste; and this is
the same with the prostration and the
same between the two sittings; such
that his prayer is in sequential
approximation, just as the Prophet
(Blessings and peace be upon him)
observed it.
(Tatbeeqoot Shaykh Ibn Baaz, min
samaahati’; Fataawah An-noor alaa
ddarb). Translated by Faarooq Bn
Ismaa’eel Al-egbaawi I say: Pass this on
to kill this innovation.
