Space between the feet during salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I see that when some people from other countries pray salaah, they touch their toes and keep so much space between the shoulders. Please explain in detail if it is in Hadeesth.


A: Spread out your feet like how you normally do, approximately four fingers apart. This practice of joining the toes is not in any hadeeth.

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