Stretching One’s Legs Towards Qiblah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
I would like to ask that can a person sleep or rest keeping his leg in position of Qiblah. Is there any hadith regarding this? Or one should not keep his/her leg only out of respect. Please reply me soon with hadith no. and name of book.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The holy Kabah is reverend and honourable. It is against etiquette to stretch one’s leg towards it. Hence it is makrooh to sleep or take a rest while stretching one’s legs towards Qiblah.
