Laying the Deceased down in the wrong manner position

Question: By mistake, the deceased was placed with the feet on the head side and vice versa. This was realized only after the Janaazah salaah was performed. Will the salaah need to be repeated?

Answer: While it is Makrooh to lay the deceased down in the opposite direction, there will be no harm done if this was done in error. There is no need to repeat the salaah. And Allah knows best what is most correct
