There are some differences between how women and men’s way of performing Salat.
1) Men raise there hands all the way to the ear for Takbeer while women raise their hands only up to their shoulders.2) In Qayam (the standing posture) Men place their hands below Navel while women place their hands on their chest.3) Men grasp their wrist while women do not. They only place right hand on the top of left with fingers intact together.4 ) In Ruku (the bowing posture) Men’s back is horizontal while women suppose to bend their back only far enough to touch their knees. Looking from far it will look like a bow arc. They won’t flatten their back.

5 ) In Sajdah men’s back portion is raised from ground and hands apart from body and fingers of feet twisted while women suppose to be gathered in a way so that all their body parts are close together and abdomen placed over her thighs.Both feet and ankles sticking out to the right. Lower portion of back touching the ground.

6 ) During Jalsa and Qaida (sitting between Sajdah and during Attahyat) men sit on their left ankle and their right foot’s fingers are twisted while women sit on floor and their both ankles and feet sticking out towards right hand side.

These are the only differences between a Man’s Salat and a Woman’s Salat.

  1. do we need to put our hands under the scarf?I was thought at school to keep my hands above the scarf
    and
    Is it that i really have to keep my legs 3-4 inches apart? Once when i did that at a masjid ,a lady had suggested me to keep them as close as possible.

    1. You see my dear, covering ourselves during namaz is must, but i never read that its utmost must to kepp our hands under the scarf.

      regarding question of 1 to 4 inches of gap between to feets during standing position. ITs also like, sharia has allowed from 4 fingers, almost a hand gap or if it is not possible than atleast one hand fully opened gap. Like, 4 Ungliyon ka afsla peron main hona chahiye or yaa phir kam se kam 1 hath ka yani poori khuli h ovi hatheli jitna. Depends on circumstances. Actual main Namaz main asal cheez khushu wa khuzu hai, baqi ye sub cheezen alag or saanvi hasiyat rakhti hain. baz log jo bohat he pairon ko chowra kar ke khare hote hain uski mukmal mumaniyat hai kionkeh wo takabar or ignorancy main ata hai. You can read a short book from dawateislami.net’s website regarding namaz of sunni females. kindly read that

    1. wsalam, you are right, but this depends on the sitting of individual. we keep our all efforts on Zahiriyat we do not have keep our keen interest in performing Namaz rather than, how to sit how to stand how to perform. They are also important but, Zahiri halat se ziyada Namaz ada karne or usko samajhne par tawaju deni chahiye

  2. I doubt if the posture of sujood that u have showed is correct. Kindly confirm it before u share. We are not supposed to touch our elbows on the ground. Allah knows the best. May Almighty guide us to the correct things Aameen

    1. Right! Our elbows are not supposed to touch ground due to similarity with dog (Naauzbillah) and secondly mard or aurat ki namaz mai Etna b farq nahi qk Hazoor Pak صلی الله علیه وسلم nay SB ko namaz ka tarika btaya sirf mardu ko nahi or na hi aurat ki namaz kisi umhat ul monineen ny sikhae!

  3. thank u so much for the guide!! i was really looking for one as there arent much guides for women with pictures! though there r some dissimilarities in ur guide from what others say..i still find it very helpful. thank u! 🙂

  4. Where it is define to style of salah is different different for man and woman. If u have any reference form Quran or authentic hadith then mention in answer.
    “The Prophet (ﷺ) then added, “Pray as you have seen me praying and when it is the time for the prayer one of you should pronounce the Adhan and the oldest of you should lead the prayer.”: Sahih al-Bukhari 631, volume 1. And alsoAllah’s Messenger (ﷺ) used to offer the Fajr prayer and some believing women covered with their veiling sheets used to attend the Fajr prayer with him and then they would return to their homes unrecognized .Sahih al-Bukhari 372. There is nothing mention about different way of salat for woman.

  5. M agree with some previous comments but here sajood method which they tell m not agree with this point..and how’s it possible only method of namaz for Pakistan women’s changed . Alkhmdolilha m going to umrah where every countries of women’s having same method n they said we r wrong specially in sajood…
    Plz whose having correct info then share it otherwise plz……

  6. I used to do mistake btwn sujud that how to put my legs thanks for d imAges I ll correct my self from today only..

  7. Dear All sister,

    I can say only few points for performing salat after read every comments. Those points for every one mens or womens,

    1) When you hands up for takbeer and touched with your ears! Its make Allah your hands with your face together.
    thats mean you are in front of your Allah S.t, and you are performing namaz in front of Allah S.T

    2) When your hand closed at your chest or navel, Your eye sight on Sajdah (sajood) place,

    Benifit: Your eye sight will be sharp, and you will receive the looking power and feel close subhan a tallah.

    3) When you will goes in rukko, Your eye sight should be on right leg thumb, and your waist should be straight. this part perform do the attention to angels, and allah S.T see their Adam.

    4) When you will goes on sajdah (Sajood), If you will see the up side! Again makes allah with hands & head together, When angel see from the up of sky.
    Also when you are in sajood, and your eye side should be on your nose. SO you will see make Allah in your sajood (Sajdah) when your nose between both of hands.

    Allah is there in sajood

    When we are performing with this few point, in that case every one feeling will be different.. and one day automatically will follow every right things, every step of every books, your heart will be Salat with deepness,

    If any one need more detail ask me on my email: nomanshabbir@gmail.com
