As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu!

I have 2 questions and I pray that some one will be able to help me.  They are both from reading Shaykh Al-Albani's book "The Prophets (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) Prayer Described"

Q1 Has to do with sitting at rest during a two, three or four ra'kah salah.  I understood that one should sit muftarishan in the final ra'kah of the two or three ra'kah salah.  For a salah that is comprised of four ra'kah, one could sit this way or mutawarrikan.

Someone told me that in the Arabic version of this book, it actully stays that one could sit mutawarrikan in a three or four rakah salah. Could someone explain this to me?  

Q2 Has to do with getting going down into sajood.  Shaykh Al-Albani quoted in his book, "He used to place his hands on the ground before his knees." He used to instruct likewise, saying, "When one of you performs sajdah, he should not kneel like a camel, but should place his hands before his knees"

Of course Shaykh Al-Albani gave his ad-daleel for both of these (including question #1).  My question is how do camels kneel?  I thought they kneel on their forelegs first?  I am confused since I read in a book by Shaykh Bin Baz that you go down on your knees first. (side note - since the book that I read sometime ago by Shaykh Bin Baz didn't give the daleel and I was already used to going down on my hands first, I keep going down this way)

I feel like I sound silly but these two questions have bothered me for a long time and I have never had anyone to answer them for me.  In sha' Allah, someone will be able to help here.

Jazakum Allahu Khyran wa Barak Allahu Feekum!

As Salaamu Alaikum-

I think I found the answer to my own question, wal Hamdulillah!  One of my questions had to do with going down into sajood.  We are not to imitate camels, correct?  So, I could not understand if camels go down on there forelegs and we go down on our hands why this would not be considered imitation of a camel.  I re-read the footnotes from Sheikh Al-Albani's book and it said:

"It should be known that the way to differ from the camel is to place the hands before the knees, because the camel places its knees first; a camel's "knees" are in its forelegs, as defined in Lisaan al-`Arab and other books of the `Arabic language, and as mentioned by Tahaawi in Mushkil al-Aathaar and Sharh Ma`aani al-Aathaar. Also, Imaam Qaasim al-Saraqusti (rahimahullaah) narrated in Ghareeb al-Hadeeth (2/70/1-2), with a saheeh isnaad, Abu Hurairah's statement, "No one should kneel the way a runaway camel does", and then added, "This is in sajdah. He is saying that one should not throw oneself down, as a runaway (or untamed) camel does, hurriedly and without calmness, but he should go down calmly, placing his hands first, followed by his knees, and an explanatory marfoo` hadeeth has been narrated in this regard." He then mentioned the hadeeth above."

Jazak Allahu Khyran for your help sisters.  If anyone can explain to me the difference between muftarishan and mutawarrikan, I would greatly appreciate it.

Barak Allahu Feekum!
