Distance between the feet while praying

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

What is the recommended distance that there should be between the feet of a person praying alone?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It is sunna that the feet be apart as much as a handspan during the standing position and the prostration, as our imams have said.

Amjad Rasheed
(Translated by Shazia Ahmad)

السؤال: ما هي المسافة المسنونة التي ينبغي أن تكون موجودة بين رجلي المصلي حين يصلي منفرداً ؟

الجواب : يسنُّ أن يباعد المصلي بين قدميه عند القيام والسجود قدرَ شبر كما صرح به أئمتنا
