Muqtadi’s head touching the mimbar in Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Because of the Musjid being overcrowded and the mimbar being an obstruction in the first saff of the Musjid, a muqtadi happened to stand in the first saff directly in front of the mimbar, and when he (muqtadi) went into sajdah, his head touched the first step of the mimbar (he basically made the sajdahs with his head touching the first step of the mimbar). In the above mentioned case, was his (muqtadi’s) salaah valid since he carried out his sajdahs in this manner?


A: Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
