The Prostration of Forgetfulness



Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-'Uthaymeen


Translation by:

Abu Talhah Daawood ibn Ronald Burbank


"There are times in our prayers when we may forget something, or we may have doubt that we have completed an action, etc. The prostration of forgetfulness is: two prostrations that the one praying makes in order to compensate for mistakes occurring in the prayer due to forgetfulness (Sahu).


Its causes are three: having added something (Az-Ziyaadah), having omitted something (An-Naqs) and having been in a state of doubt (Ash-Shakk).


We will look at these causes separately inshallaah.
