Pearl of Wisdom

'Allah brought death to the prophet Irmiya' who looked at the ruins of Jerusalem and its surroundings when Nebuchadnezzar invaded it. He said, 'How will Allah revive this after its death?!' So Allah made him die for a hundred years, then He resurrected him. He looked at his organs and how they came together and how they became covered in flesh, and at his limbs and veins and how they were connected together. When he sat upright he said, 'I know that Allah has power over all things'.

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.
