Q: Please tell me what is the correct way of doing sajdah for hanafi mazhab sunni muslim women? Some say there is no difference in the way of doing sajdah between men and women and some say that the elbows of the women should touch the ground and a woman should contract her body during sajdah. Please tell me what is the correct way of doing sajdah.
A: The Salaah of women differs from the Salaah of men in various postures. We have prepared a detailed article on the Sunnah method of the Salaah of women. You may refer to it http://ihyaauddeen.co.za/?p=6413
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
