Question: How do we perform the forgetfulness prostration when praying alone? If my bowing (ruku’) is too short because I accidentally said “Subhana Rabi al-Azim” only two times before standing up, do I need to perform the forgetfulness prostration?
Answer: In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
Assalam’aleykum, I pray this finds you in the best of states.
Jazakum Allah khayr for your question!
The forgetfulness prostration
For the forgetfulness prostration (which is necessary if a necessary (wajib) action was left forgetfully, and for nothing else):
Forgetting the glorifications in the bowing
And Allah knows best. I hope that the above answers your question. If something is unclear please don’t hesitate to ask again.
May Allah Most High grant you the best of this world and the next. Please keep us in your du’as!
