Toes touching the ground in sajdah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Majority of the time when I do sujood, my little toe doesn’t touch the ground and perhaps the two besides it, but the big toe and one next to it  mostly do if not all do, so, is all toes touching the ground with pressure waajib/Fard, if so should one make movements in sujood or seating to ensure they touch the ground? Also I am not able to remember all the times this has happened, a lot though.


A: Try to the best of your ability to place all your toes on the ground. However in the case that you have mentioned, since the both feet were on the ground, the Salaah will be valid.

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