Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

Is it still sunna, or recommended, for the Muslim to sit in iftirash style in the prayer, even if it causes him difficulty and distracts him from concentrating on his prayer? And is it recommended for him to take it upon himself to do iftirash in the group prayer when there is little space?
