Before making 'ruku' (bowing low with hands on knees) I realized my mistake and performed the missed 'sajda'. Subsequently, I made 'sajda-i-sahw' (forgetfulness prostration) as well. Is my 'salaat' valid?

50 > It is mentioned in one of your 'bayaans' (lectures) that according to 'Hanafi' jurists ('fuqaha'), Friday 'salaat' (prayer) cannot be offered in villages. Instead, normal 'Dhuhr' (mid-day) 'salaat' should be offered. Should the 'Dhuhr salaat' in such places be prayed in 'jamaá' (congregation) i.e. with 'adhaan' (call for prayer) and 'aqaamah' (announcement for start of congregation) in the mosque or as 'furada' (individually)? If there is only one person, should he pronounce 'adhaan' and 'aqaamah' before offering his 'Dhuhr salaat'?

49 > Is it 'makrooh' (detested by Islam) to make 'adhaan' and 'aqaamah' by a person who does not sport beard in accordance with 'shari'ah'?

48 > When and why did the people start offering Friday prayers in villages despite the fact that it is not permissible to do so? How do they justify this violation?

46 > Is it allowed to perform 'dhikr' of Allah Ta'ala during menses?

44 > What should one do if he recalls that he missed 'qira'at' (recitation of Quran) after 'Al-Fatiha' while praying 'sunnah muakkadah'?

43 > Why 'adhaan' is not pronounced for 'tahajjud' prayer at so many places despite being delivered at 'haramain sharifain' (the two holy mosques)?
