Salaah A Reminder for Trinidad Muslims: The Sutrah and our Salaah

A Reminder for Trinidad Muslims:
The Sutrah
and our Salaah

Some advices to my fellow Muslim brothers in Trinidad and Tobago. Please share, to help revive these sunnahs. BarakAllahu feekum. The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, what means, "Whoever invites to goodness will have a reward like all those who follow him in that, without their rewards decreasing in the least..." (Muslim)

(1) Its importance and obligation

Abu Dharr (radhiAllahu anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “When one of you stands for Salaah, there should be an object before him, like a saddle...[to the end of the hadith]” [Sahih Muslim, As-Salaah, Chapter: The limit of the Sutrah for the one who is praying, Hadith 510]

Narrated Nafi: Ibn Umar (radhiAllahu anhumah) said: “The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) used to make his she-camel sit across and he would offer Salaah facing it (as a Sutra).” I asked, “whould would the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) do if the she-camel was provoked and moved?” He said, “he (salallahu alayhiwasallam) would take it’s camel-saddle and put it in front of him and offer Salah facing its back part (as a Sutra)” And Ibn Umar (radhiAllahu anhumah) used to do the same. (This indicated that one should not offer Salaah except behind a Sutra). [Sahih al-Bukhari, Book of as-Salaah, Chapter: To offer as-Salaah facing a Rahila (mount) a camel, a tree, or a camel-saddle (etc, as a Sutra), Hadith 507].

  • The height of the Sutra should be at least equal to the rear part of a camel’s saddle. Its approximate measure is about one foot. If nothing is available, a mace (rod or staff) can serve the purpose of sutra; and if even that is not available, some scholars say that a line can be drawn on the ground as given in the (daif) narration of Abu Da’ud. [Notes to Hadith 181, The Book of Prayer, Bulugh al-Maram (ibn Hajr), Darussalam publication]
See also:
  • Sahih al-Bukhari, as-Salaat, Chapter: The Sutra of the Imaam is also the Sutra for those who are behind him.
  • Sahih al-Bukhari, as-Salaat, Chapter: To offer as-Salaah facing a pillar
  • Sahih al-Bukhari, as-Salaat, Chapter: To offer as-Salaah facing a bed
  • Sahih al-Bukhari, as-Salaat, Chapter: What should be the distance between the person offering Salaah and the Sutra
Google Doc version:
Sahih al-Bukhari No. 6057. Narrated Aisha (ra):The Prophet was asked, "What deeds are loved most by Allah?" He said, "The most regular constant deeds even though they may be few." He added, 'Don't take upon yourselves, except the deeds which are within your ability." Reciter: al-Ajmy...Surah al-Faatihah - (The Opening: First Chapter of the Quran) (The text) | Ayatul Kursee (reciter: as-Shuraym; Tafseer;)
