Sitting Between Two Prostration
SITTING BETWEEN TWO prostration
Sitting between prostrations which is done first and the second prostration, the roka’at first to the last. There are two types of sitting between two prostrations, sitting iftirasy (sitting by putting the butt on your left foot and right foot enforced) (see picture) and sat iq’ak (sitting by enforcing both feet and sits above the heel). It is based on the hadith:
From ‘A-isyah said: “And the Prophet sallallaahu’ alaihi wa sallam that he left out his legs and enforcing the right foot, baliau banned from his seat syaithan.”
(Narrated by Ahmad and Muslim)
* Comments Shaykh Al-Albani: syaithan seat is two feet enforced then sat on the floor between the two legs with two hands pressing on the floor.
From Rifa’ah bin Rafi ‘, the hadith, and says the Apostle sallallaahu’ alaihi wa sallam: “When you bow down and instead emphasize the past that sit up on top of the left thigh.”
(Hadith issued by Ahmad and Abu Dawood with lafadhz Abu Dawud)
The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam sometimes sit iq’ak, ie, [sitting by enforcing the soles and heels of both legs].
(Issued by the Muslim Hadith)
When sitting between two prostrations enforced this right foot and his fingers are directed to the Qiblah:
He straightened his right leg (Al-Bukhari)
Confronts his fingers to the Qiblah (An-Nasa-i)
