In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
“Nothing is the life of this world but play and amusement, but best is the Home in the Hereafter, for those who are righteous, will you not then understand?” (6:32)

Shoulder To Shoulder, Not Feet To Feet!

Shoulder to Shoulder, Not Feet to Feet!

Muhammad Yusuf Danka

The Muqtadi should join their shoulders with others in the row either side of them (the feet should not be so far apart that shoulders cannot be joined) and not leave any space between each other. The feet and chest should face towards the Qibla. No individual should be slightly forward or behind the others (they should all be in one ‘straight’ line.)

The Imam should stand in a central position to the rows behind him the Muqtadis should form rows, completing the front rows first.

Rasullulah stated that the Imam should be ahead of the rows in a central position and no gaps should left in the rows. (Sunan Abu Dawood, vol 1, p99)

We will now explain how to position the feet in Salah through the correct meanings and purpose of the Ahadith of the Prophet , the actions of the companions , statements of the Khulafa Rashideen and the rulings of the four Imams of Fiqh .رحمه الله تعالى اجمعين
