Assalamualaikum mufti saheb,

When my wife performs Salaah, before doing prostration she sits on her left buttock facing both feet towards right and then go for first sajdah. Is it correct? Or she must directly go in sajdah after Qauma (Standing after ruku) without sitting? Please Reply.
Jazakallahu Khairan.

The answer to your question is as follows:
The sunnah mode for women's sitting in salah is 'tawarruk' i.e. she should sit on her hips while taking out her left leg from beneath her right hip. This position is having more satr (veil) for women. As it is mentioned in notes of Tahtawi.(And Allah knows the best)
