Salam, when a woman praying salat, does she have to put her arms flat on ground? Is there a different between men and women how they put their arms on the ground?

Salam. When boys and men pray, their elbow must not touch the floor/ground. Girls and women can pray that same way, but they are allowed to rest their elbows on the floor/ground if they want to do it that way.

As a female, you can pray either way, but if your relatives might object for doing it differently than they do, you can opt to pray alone in your room.

It is mustahab for women to place their arms on the ground in sajdah. It is mustahab for males to not place the arms on the ground.

 

Ruling 1077. The following things are recommended when performing sajdah:

13. men should not make their elbows touch the ground; also, they should keep their stomachs raised higher from the ground (compared to women) and keep their arms detached from their sides. Women should place their elbows on the ground, keep their stomachs closer to the ground, and keep their limbs joined to one another.
