2. Pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on Arbaeen [the 40th day following Ashura],
3. Wearing a ring on the right hand,
4. Placing the forehead on the earth [during Sajdah in the prayer];

“علامات المؤمنین خمس : صلاةُ الاحدی و الخمسین و زیارةُ الاربعین والتـَختم فی الیَمین و تـَعفیرُ الجـَبین و الجَهر ببسم الله الرحمن الرحیم”

[2]  Each prayer or Salat in Islam consists of  individual units called Rakat. Each Rakat is very similar to each other except some minor details.
