They are the statements and postures, which if any of them is intentionally neglected, prayer is invalidated, but if inattentively, it is not invalidated, and performing the prostration of Forgetfulness will be obligatory then.

They are eight:

1-   All the Takbeers of prayer – other than the opening Takbeer.

2-   Saying, ‘Sami’a Allaahu liman hamidah (Allaah hears those who praise Him’, which is obligatory to be said by the Imaam or the one praying alone after rising from bowing.
