Raising/Outspreading the arms during sujood


▪️ The Imaam does it and the one praying alone, for indeed the Messenger of Allah ﷺ did it while he was the Imaam, as for the ones following then they do it if they won’t cause difficulty, according to the level of capability, and he is not to make it narrow for the ones next to him.

▪️ In rukoo’ he establishes firmly holding onto the knees and reclining on them, and in sujood he doesn’t spread them on the floor, rather he raises them.

▪️ There’s no problem with reclining on the knees in sujood due to necessity, and its by putting the elbows on the knees.
