Perform the prostration. Say Allahu Akbar (الله أَكْبَر) once again and prostrate on the ground. Make sure you have placed your forehead, palms, and knees all on the floor, touching the ground. The bases of the toes on both feet also need to touch the ground. Have your forehead be bare – a covered forehead invalidates prayer. Recite Subhan rabbi alAla (سبحان ربى الأعلى) three times which means « Glory be to my Lord, the Most high. » Everyone must keep their elbows raised above the ground.
