Standing on toes does not invalidate prayer

11-5-2016 | IslamWeb


Is your prayer invalid if your heals do not touch the ground when you stand up in prayer? Sometimes, my feet are on my skirt, so then I stand on my toes to pull the skirt from underneath them. Does this invalid my prayer?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

This action does not invalidate the prayer. Standing on one's toes does not undermine the validity of the standing position in the prayer. Hence, your prayer is valid if your heals do not touch the ground in prayer for the mentioned purpose (to remove the skirt from under your feet).

Allaah knows best.
