14.   To pray in both Qaidahs the whole of Tashahhud, in fact, regardless of the amount of Qaidahs in a Salaah to pray the whole of Tashahhud is Wajib, if even one word is left out of Attahiytat the Wajib will be missed.

15.In both Salaams the word Salaam is Wajib, the words ‘Alaikum Wa Rahmutullah’ is not Wajib.

16. To pray ‘Dua-e-Qunoot’ in Witr.

17.  To perform Takbeer in Qunoot (To lift your hands and say Allahu Akbar in the third Rakat of Witr).

22. To perform only one Ruku in every rakat and to perform only two Sajdas.

23.   Not to perform a Qaidah before two rakats and not to perform a Qaida in the third rakat if it is a four rakat Salaah.

24. To perform Sajda-e-Tilawat if an Ayat of Sajda has been prayed.

27.   If the Imam is performing Qirayat, whether it is loudly or quietly, the Muqtadees to remain completely quiet.

28.   Except for Qirayat, to follow the Imam in all the Wajibs.

Method of performing Sajda-e-Sahoo (Book page 135)

1) The method of performing this is, when you finish praying ‘Attahiyat’ in the last Qaidah, turn your head to the right side and then perform two Sajdas. Then repeat Attahiyat from the beginning and complete your Salaah.

2) If a Wajib was missed and you did not perform Sajda-e-Sahoo and completed the Salaah, then it is Wajib to repeat the Salaah.

3) If a Wajib is missed deliberately, then a to perform A Sajda-e-Sahoo would not be sufficient      and therefore it would be Wajib to repeat the Salaah.

4) If any of the Fardh actions are missed, then Sajda-e-Sahoo would not compensate for them and therefore the Salaah would not count and to repeat the Salaah would be Fardh.
