Distance between feet in Salaah.

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Some people in our masjid stresses so much about keeping the feet close and making the saff in salah, that they even liteerally step on our feet. i feel that i’m unable to concentrate in our namaaz. Please help me.

1.How close should our feet and shoulders be kept to keep the shaythan away? Should the skins touch?

2. I wanted to ask another question regarding giving my wife her haqq sexually, where can i ask such question?

I’m a shafiee.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

The Darul Iftaa specialises in issuing Fatawa according to the Hanafi Mazhab. We advise that you refer your query to a Mufti who specialises in Shaf’i Fiqh. You may refer to http://www.shafiifiqh.com/.
