The manner a woman should sit in tashahhud

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In Salaah for women, when sitting in Jalsa position or tashahhud position, it is Sunnah to sit with the both feet towards the right. The question is, should the toes of both the feet face the qiblah or face towards the right?


A: She should sit on her left buttock while removing both her feet to the right side and facing her toes to the qiblah.

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

قال الطحطاوي : وتجلس متوركة في كل قعود بأن تجلس على أليتها اليسرى وتخرج كلتا رجليها من الجانب الأيمن وتضع فخذيها على بعضها وتجعل الساق الأيمن على الساق الأيسر كما في مجمع الأنهر (حاشية الطحطاوي على مراقي الفلاح ص 259)
