(salam)

I remember reading a long hadith by the blessed Imam in which he instructs how to offer prayers (salat) clearly and step by step with words and actions described. However I don't remember which book it was in or who was the author of the book. Can someone please point it out for me? Thanks.

Prayer of Imam Jafar Sadiq (pbut)

The prayer of Imam Jafar Sadiq (pbut) consists of two rakats. In each rakat one should recite Sura Fatiha once and the ayah of bearing witness (Sura Aal e Imran ayah 18) 100 times. The following is the Supplication of Imam (pbut);

O Artist Creator of all things that has been created! O He who joins together separate bones! 

O He Who is everywhere! O He Who is aware of all secrets! 

O He Who knows the obscure and the unseen! O He Who is present everywhere without being absent from any other place! O He Who prevails, and is never dominated! 

O He Who is near, and is never out of reach! O Companion of every unattended desolate! 

O Ever living, who brings the dead to life, and makes the living dead, Everlasting vigilant over all souls for that which they have earned! O He Who was ever present when nothing existed! 

There is no God except Thou. Send blessings on Mohammed (pbuhh) and on the Family of Mohammed (pbut

Thank you so much my friends. May Allah reward you greatly.

I am in a habit to revisit the most important of things including re-reading ayahs because I have seen that I sometimes make silly little mistakes. And re-reading these instructions I have again found a few minor corrections important to me and am happy to have made them with your help.

From Hammad ibn Isa who has said the following: “Abu Abd Allah (عليه السلام), one day asked me, ‘Do you know how to perform Salat properly?’ I said, ‘I comply with the book of Hariz regarding Salat.’ The Imam said, ‘Nevermind, O Hammad. Stand up and perform Salat.’ 

The narrator has said, ‘I then stood up in his presence, facing the direction of Qiblah. I began performing Salat, with Ruku and Sajdah.’ He then said, “O Hammad, you do not know how to perform Salat properly. It is a shame for a man of your people who at the age of sixty or seventy cannot even perform one Salat according to its complete rules and manners.’ Hammad has said, ‘I belittled myself very much at this point. I then asked him saying, “I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause, teach me how to perform Salat properly.”’

Abu ‘Abd Allah (عليه السلام), stood up straight facing the direction of Qiblah. He allowed his hands to rest on his thighs, with his fingers close side by side, kept his feet near each other, only leaving between them a distance of three fingers opened up, with his toes facing the direction of Qiblah without allowing them to deviate from this direction and with humbleness said, ‘Allah is great.’

He then recited al-Hamd with clarity and fluency and Chapter 112 of the Holy Qur'an. He then paused for a breath while still standing and raised his hands up to the sides of his face and said, ‘Allah is great,’ while still standing. He then bent down for Ruku. He then placed his palms over his knees allowing them to be filled up with his knees that were separate from each other, and pressed them backward until his back became so straightly level that even if there had been a drop of water or oil it would not flow to any side. He stretched his neck forward, lowered his eyes and then said with clarity and fluency three times, ‘I praise my Lord, the Great, Who is free of all defects.’ He then stood up straight. While standing straight he said, ‘Allah hears all those who praise Him.’

He then while standing raised his hands up to the sides of his face and said, ‘Allah is great.’ Then he bowed down for sajdah. He opened his palms with his fingers close side by side, placed them near his knees on the sides next to his face and said, ‘I praise my Lord, the most High who is free of all defects,’ three times. He did not place any other part of his body on any other part thereof. He performed sajdah on eight parts of his bones: his palms, knees, big toes of his feet, his forehead and his nose. He (the Imam) said, ‘Placing seven parts of these bones on the ground is obligatory during sajdah but one of them (the nose) is not obligatory. This is what Allah has spoken of in the Qur'an, “The parts of the body to be placed on the ground during sajdah belong to Allah, you then must not worship anyone other than Allah.” (72:17) Such parts are forehead, palms, knees and big toes of feet. Placing one’s nose on the ground is optional.’ He then raised his head from sajdah. When he sat up straight, he then said, ‘Allah is great.’ He then sat on his left thigh placing the back of his right foot over the sole of his left foot and then said, ‘I seek forgiveness from Allah, my Lord and turn to Him in repentance.’ He then said, ‘Allah is great.’ Then he bowed down for second sajdah, saying therein what he said in the first sajdah. He did not place any other part of his body on any other part during Ruku‘ or sajdah. He spread his elbows and did not place his arms on the ground. In this way, he performed two Rak‘ats of Salat (prayer). He (the Imam) kept the fingers of his hands close side by side when saying the two testimonies in a sitting position. When he finished saying the testimonies, he then read Salam and said, ‘O Hammad, you must perform Salat like this.’”

Are there narrations about tasbihat arbaat in 3rd and 4th rakaah? If not, where are they from in relation to salah?
