Placing the mayyit on a table for janaazah salaah

Q: Is it correct to place a mayyit (dead body) for salaatul janaazah on a table instead of on the ground? The table is permanently fixed to the ground in some places and is unfixed (like a movable normal table) in some places.

A: Place it on the ground.

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