Sitting and reading the nafl salaah

Question ID: 40242

Assalamu alaikum,
Respected Mufti Sahab, I want to know if reading the last Nafil Namaz of Esha in a sitting position Sunnat or not? If one sits and reads will there be any deficiency in Sawab, whether Sunnat or Nafil Namaz read without any Sharie uzr (excuse). If ones sits and reads how should the Ruku and Sujood be done?

One should stand and perform both the Sunnat and the Nafl. If you are extremely tired and weak there there is room to perform it sitting. One will only earn half the reward when praying Salaat sitting. The method is as follows:

Your sitting equals your standing.

Placing the hands on the thighs while leaning forward a little equals the Rukhu.

Placing the hands on the thighs while bending more forward then Rukhu equals Sajdah.

(In most cases the person makes the Sajdah)
