Q: Is there a difference in performing Salah for men and women or is it the same for both?
Answer: Yes there are differences in performing Salah for men and women. Here are the differences:
Men take their hands to their ears when starting Salah (Takbir-e-Tahrima), whereas women take it only to their shoulders.
During Qayam (standing position), men place their hands under the navel with the right hand over the back of the left hand. For Women: The women should put them on the chest, right hand over the back of the left hand.
During Ruku, men rest their hands on the knee, and the fingers have a gap, whereas there should be no gap for women.
During Sajdah, men keep their fingers apart and elbows raised from the ground; the upper portion of their knees does not touch the stomach, and the feet are upright. Women should join their fingers, elbows touching the ground, the upper part of the knees touching the stomach, and the feet relaxed and tilted towards the right.
During Qadah (while sitting), men's right foot is upright while resting the left foot, whereas for Women, both their feet are relaxed, and the legs lean towards the right.
