    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 137/111/D=02/1435) The scholars of fiqh have stated that one should see in his lap in the state of tashahhud: كما في الشامي: (ولها آداب) نظره إلى موضع سجوده حال قيامه، وإلى ظهر قدميه حال ركوعه، وإلى أرنبة أنفه حال سجوده، وإلى حجره حال قعوده. (1/175مکتبة زکریا)
