"Foot Pressing Stance" During Prayer (2)

al-salamu `alaykum

Here is something from one of the members of the list:

As-Salaamu 'Alaikum,

Sheikh Bakr Abu Zaid has a very good book on this topic called "La Jadid Fi Ahkam as-Salaah" (There is nothing new to the rulings of Salaah), in which he regards this practice to be an innovation and Allah knows best.

By the way, Sheikh Bakr Abu Zaid is one of the in our time the author of an excellent introduction to the HanbalFiqh, the Imthe Ashaab and the scholars along with their books up until our time, which he called: al-Madkhal al-Mufassal Ila Fiqh al-ImAibn  He is also a Muhaqqiq of a few Hanbalbooks such as as-Suhub al-Wabilah and Tasheel as-Saabilah li Mureed Ma'rifatil-by al-Buradi.

Was-Salaamu 'Alaikum
