Question #13-20: Hadith :“Not to do like the camels when we are going to perform sujood (postrations)

Question:

What is the meaning of the hadith where the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) mentions about “not to do like the camels when we are going to perform sujood (postrations)”?

Answer:

“Alhamdulillah wasalatu wasalmu Alla Saydina Mohamed”

This means that one should not land on the floor brusquely on the knees (like camel do when they kneel down). He should go into sujood by placing his hands first on the floor not the knees. In other words, we should land on our hands first, then the knees.

Allah knows best.
