Making Sajdah

Shaykh Gibril Fouad Haddad

“I have two questions. The first concerning sajdah. Do knees touch “the ground first, or do hands? I remember someone quoting a hadith “about not making sajdah like a camel. What does this mean?

The only school that says hands first to my knowledge is the Hanbalis. I saw this in Ibn al-Jawzi’s book of comparative fiqh “al-tahqiq fi ahadith al-khilaf.” I don’t know the hadith quoted, but when the camel sits, his front two knees are first to touch the ground, then the hind knees.

Peace and Blessings upon the Prophet, his Family, and his Companions
