Pearl of Wisdom

'At the end of Sha'ban, when there were only three days left till the month of Rama an, The Prophet (SAWA) told Bilal, 'Call all the people', so the people gathered together. The Prophet (SAWA) mounted the pulpit, praised Allah and glorified Him, then continued, ?O people, this month that is coming upon you is the chief of all months. One particular night in it is better than a thousand months. During this month, the gates of Hell are locked up, and the gates of Paradise are opened. So whoever, in spite of experiencing this month is not forgiven, has indeed been distanced by Allah.'

Imam Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir [as]
Ibid. p. 113, no. 92

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.
