Lifting the feet of the ground during sajdah

Q: What is the ruling if a person lifts up both his legs during sajdah? Is the prayer invalidated?

A: If both the feet are lifted of the ground for the duration of three subhaanallahs (i.e. the time it takes to recite subhaanallah thrice) the salaah will break.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
