There may be some of you that questions the need of that space between Najib and the next person praying beside him...I can only speak from personal experience.. No not as a Prime Minister...jauh sekali...but as some one who needs that space between me and the next guy praying beside me.
I have never been a regular prayer guy...even Friday prayers are rare occurrences when I was in KL...so when I pray it is physical exercises that requires an effort - especially when I 'sujud' and and then rise to a sitting position...if I do not have enough space between the guy next to me, I will create physical havoc on his feet or toes.
Maybe Najib has the same problem...not too much practise and he is generously proportioned...and those next to him do not want to get crush in the process...so wisely they give him room.
And please do not pass judgement on me because of what I do or do not do....I am already 67 .....let them deal with me when my time comes...whether it is heaven or hell.
Face the Qiblah (toward Mecca), and make sure you’re in a clean area, now you are about to start one of the following prayers: 1stprayer (Subh), 2nd prayer (Dhuhr), 3rd (Asr), 4th (Maghrib), 5th (Ishaa).
Standing, you will start the prayer raising both hands up close to your ears and say "Allahu Akbar" (God is Most Great). (Look at the picture on the side).
Then put one hand on the top of the other hand between your chest and upper stomach, and start reciting surat “al fatiha”, say “ameen” once you finish it, and then start reciting another small surat (check here to find out more about “al fatiha” and the other “surats”).
Once you finish reciting raise your hands up to the ears, saying "Allahu Akbar." Bow (your hands on your knees, back straight, your face toward the ground, saying three times, "Subhana rabbiyal adheem" (Glory be to my Lord Almighty). This position is called (ruku’). See photo.
Rise back to standing while saying "Sami’a Allahu liman hamidah, Rabbana wa lakal hamd" (God hears those who call upon Him; Our Lord, praise be to You).
Raise hands up, saying "Allahu Akbar" then descend to the ground (see photo), while your face on the ground say three times "Subhana Rabbiyal A'ala" (Glory be to my Lord, the Most High). This position is called “sujud”
Rise to a sitting position (see picture), saying "Allahu Akbar."
Then prostrate back on the ground (this is the second time you do it), while your face on the ground say three times "Subhana Rabbiyal A'ala"
