What is the ruling of stretching one’s feet towards the Qibla?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The Ka’bah is from the salient features of Islam, hence we must respect it. To stretch one’s feet/foot towards the Qibla goes against Islamic etiquette, hence to deliberately stretch one’s feet towards the Qibla is makruh (disliked). Nevertheless, if someone does it forgetfully or due to a valid excuse, then there’s no blame nor sin upon him.
