Question : #628 Category: Salaat / Prayers
Subject: Prayers
Question: I read Friday congregation prayers with our fellow brothers and sisters from the Sunni school of thought and I am Shi'a, and because I was worried about what they might think/do I place my forehead on just the prayer mat and not on a Torbah, earth, stone, leaf or hand. Is my prayer still accepted for placing my forehead on just the prayer mat?
Answer: Not prostrating on the permissible items makes a prayer invalid, whereas praying on carpet is considered void.

However prostration on carpets in the case of Taqiyah (dissimulation) or out of necessity is permissible and there would be no objection in it.
