Why we can't Attach Our Feet in Salaah

…and from it is the saying of Anas, may Allaah be pleased with him, in a Sunnah from the Sunan of Salaat; and it is the spacing in the Salaat; that a Muslim stands beside his Muslim brother and attaches is feet, knees and shoulders to his brother without being excessive or negligent, as was legislated by the Messenger – صلى الله عليه وسلم – who said:

“You will straighten your lines or Allaah will separate between your hearts or faces.”

This is why when the hearts have become separated during this time, so did the feet. Why is it that we can’t attach our feet to each other’s feet? It is because our hearts are detached from one another, if our hearts were attached to one another, our feet would also be attached. This is why if a person who loves you and whom you love were to put his foot over yours, you would not get upset, you would not say; ‘why is he bothering me’, this is because your heart loves him. But because there is a detachment between you and him, you cannot stand that he attaches his foot to yours let alone that he puts his foot over yours.

This is why Anas, may Allaah be pleased with him, when he describes his state at the time of the Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه وسلم – and his state after that, he says; “At the time of the Messenger – صلى الله عليه وسلم – we would attach our feet to our brother’s feet, and our knees to our brother’s knees, and our shoulders to our brother’s shoulders, in obedience to the Messenger’s orders – صلى الله عليه وسلم - , but if we were to do so today, he would escape like an obstinate mule.”

By Allaah I saw with my own eyes here in Madeenah, a man wanted to attach his foot to his brother’s foot, by Allaah his brother cut his Salaat, he cut his Salaat and left the whole first line and went to the second line. He left the first line to escape this Sunnah, and the cause of this is ignorance, may Allaah preserve you. This is why we must teach the people the Sunnah of the Prophet – صلى الله عليه وسلم – because people are enemies to what they are ignorant of.

لماذا لا نستطيع أن نلصق أقدامنا في الصلاة

لتسون صفوفكم أو ليخالفن الله بين قلوبكم أو وجوهكم
ولذلك لما تنافرت القلوب في هذا الزمان تنافرت الأقدام لماذا لا نستطيع أن نلصق أقدامنا ببعضنا لأن قلوبنا متنافرة فلو كانت القلوب متآلفة لتآلفت الأقدام ولذلك لو جاء أحد يحبك و تحبه ووضع قدمه فوق قدمك هكذا ما تغضب ما تقول ضايقتني لماذا؟ لأن قلبك يحبه ولكن لأن أخاك بينك وبينه منافرة ما تطيق ان يلصق قدمه بقدمك فضلا بأن يضع قدمه

ولذلك أنس رضي الله عنه يصف حاله في زمن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وحاله بعد ذلك يقول كنا في زمن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يلصق احدنا قدمه بقدم اخيه وركبته بركبة اخيه ومنكبه بمنكب أخيه امتثالا لأمر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول ولو فعلتها مع احدهم الأن لفر منك كما يفر البغل الشموس

والله رأيت عيني هنا في المدينة رجلا يريد ان يلصق قدميه بقدم أخيه والله فقطع أخوه الصلاة قطع الصلاة وترك الصف كله ورجع الى الخلف ترك الصف الأول فرارا من هذه السنة وسبب هذا الجهل حفظكم الله ولذلك ينبغي لنا أن نعلم الناس سنة النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لأن الناس أعداء لما جهلوا.
