* The ceiling of the place where one prays should not be so low, nor should the place be so small that there may be no room for performing Ruku or Sajdah.

* The place on where a person places his/her forehead while in Sajdah should be pak.

* If the place where one wishes to pray is Najis, it should not be so wet that its moisture would reach the body or the dress of the person praying.

* The place where the person places his/her forehead while in sajdah, should not be bigger or lower than a span of four fingers, when compared to the place of the thighs or toes of his/her feet.  But it is not harm if the land slope is low.(4)
