Chapter 49

باب الأعظم التي يقع عليها السجود

The bones on which the sujud takes place


السجود على سبعة أعظمعلى الجبهة، والكفين، والركبتين، والإبهامين .


The sujud is upon seven bones: upon the forehead, the palms, the knees, and the big toes.


والإرغام بالأنف سنة، من تركها لم تكن له صلاة .


Cleaving the nose to the ground (al-irgham bi ‘l-anf) is a sunna, and whoever abandons it has no salat for him.
