Sajdah counter

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: We have developed a new product which is placed in front of the prayer mat that records the number of Sajdas and Rakaats performed by the worshipper on a small screen. It has no video and no music. Using this product the worshipper is not confused or distracted regarding Sajdas performed. With this product a person can concrete and focus on praying which is very important. Please advise whether it is permissible to use this product to remember?


A: We discourage these types of items. In salaah you should be concentrating on salaah and not on any other instrument etc.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
