Imaam makes a mistake but doesn‟t understand what the congregation is referring to when they say “subhaan Allaah” to draw his attention to it.

If the imaam makes a mistake and misses an obligatory part of the prayer, and the congregation remind him of the mistake (by saying  subhaan Allah‖), but he does not understand what they mean or does not know when or where he made the mistake, and continues to move on to other obligatory acts which do not include the missed
act, then there a number of opinions as to how they should make him understand. The best of these opinions is that they should remind him of the act by the particular supplication for that act, e.g., saying subhaana Rabbi al-Azeem if it was the rukoo‘ or subhaana Rabbi al-Ala if it was the prostration, or Rabbighfir li if it was the sitting between the two prostrations, etc.
