Episode 8: Sitting upon the left foot (Al-Iftiraash) and sitting upon the raised heels (Al-IQ'AA`) in between the two prostrations

    (108) Then he raises up his head, saying the takbeer (i.e., Allaahu Akbar). This is an obligation.
    (109) He raises his hands at this point, sometimes.
    (110) Then he sits with calmness, such that every bone settles in its place. This is a pillar.
    (111) He should lay his left foot flat beneath him and sit upon it. This is an obligation.
    (112) He sets his right foot upright upon the ground.
    (113) He should make the toes of his right foot point towards the qiblah (direction of Prayer).
    (114) It is also permissible to sit upon the heels (al-Iq'aa`) sometimes. He does this by sitting upon his heels with both feet upright.
    (115) He says in his sitting:
    Allaahumma-ghfirlee, warhamnee, wajburnee, warfa'nee, wa'aafinee, warzuqnee
    O Allaah forgive me, and have mercy upon me, and suffice me, and raise my rank, and grant me safety and well-being, and grant me provision.
    (116) And if he wishes he may (instead) say:
    Rabbi-ghfirlee, Rabbi-ghfirlee
    O my Lord, forgive me! O my Lord, forgive me!
    (117) And he should prolong this sitting until it becomes of similar length to his prostration.
    THE SECOND PROSTRATION
    (118) Then he says:
    Allaahu Akbar
    Allaah is Greater.
    and this is an obligation.
    (119) And he raises his hands with this takbeer, sometimes.
    (120) And he performs the second prostration, and this is a pillar also.
    (121) He does in the second prostration that which he did in the first.
    SITTING AT REST (JILSATUL-ISTIRAAHAH)
    (122) So when he raises his head up from the second prostration, and he intends to get up to perform the second rak'ah, then he says:
    Allaahu Akbar
    Allaah is Greater.
    and this is an obligation.
    (123) And he raises his hands, sometimes.
    (124) And he (briefly) sits upright, sitting upon his left foot, such that every bone returns to its place, before standing.
    THE SECOND UNIT OF PRAYER (RAK'AH)
    (125) Then he gets up, supporting himself upon the ground with his fists clenched, like one who clenches his fists when kneading dough. So he stands up for the second rak'ah, and this is a pillar.
    (126) He does in the second rak'ah the same as he did in the first.
    (127) Except that he does not recite, “The Opening Supplication,” (i.e., Du'aa al-Istiftaah) in it.
    (128) He should make the second rak'ah shorter than the first rak'ah.
