Errors in Prayers....

1. Sticking the arms to the sides of the body, in rukoo' or sujood, and sticking the belly to the thighs in sujood.

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Let not one of you support himself on his forearms (in sujood ) like the dog. Let him rest on his palms and keep his elbows away from his body." (Sahih Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) used to keep his arms away from his body during rukoo' and sujood that the whiteness of his armpits could be seen (Sahih Muslim).

Gazing upward during prayer.
The Prophet (SAW) warned: "Let those who raise their gaze up during prayer
stop doing so, or else their sights would not return to them. [i.e. lose their eyesight]." (Muslim)

3.Resting only the tip of the head on the floor during sujood.

The Prophet (SAW) said: "I am commanded to prostrate on seven Bones the
forehead and the nose, the two hands [palms], the two knees, and the two feet." (Sahih Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) saw a man who did not complete his rukoo'
[bowing], and made a very short sujood [prostration]; he (SAW) said:

"If this man dies while praying in this manner, he would die upholding a religion other than the religion of Muhammad."

5.The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:

"The worst thief is the one who steals from his own prayer.People asked, 'Messenger of Allah! How could one steal from his own prayer?'

He (SAW) said: "By not completing its rukoo' and sujood." (At-Tabarani al-Hakim).
To complete rukoo' is to stay in that posture long enough to recite 'subhana rabbiyal Adtheem' three times, SLOWLY, and 'subhana rabbiyal-a'ala' three times, SLOWLY, in sujood. He (SAW) also announced:

"He who does not complete his rukoo' and sujood, his prayer is void." (Abu Dawood others)

And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message. Qur'an 36:17
