Prayer - Sunnah Way to Get Up from Sujood
  • Question:

    What is the correct Sunnah way to get up from sujood? With the help of your hands that is your fingers or with the knuckles?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    The prophetic method of getting up from prostration is with the hands.

    Wa'il ibn Hujr (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “I saw that the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) placed his knees (on the ground) before placing his hands when he prostrated himself. And when he stood up, he raised his hands before his knees. Feet and toes should be positioned in the direction of the Qiblah” [Abu Dawud]

    And Allah knows best.
