Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
If a person prays sitting on a chair in the mosque, should he put the back legs or the front legs of the chair in line with the other worshippers’ feet?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:
He should put the back legs of the chair in line with the other worshippers’ feet.
But then when he stands, he will be in front of the others
He isn’t standing, (so he should put) his back in line with the feet of the other worshippers. And Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
