Reading namaz while sitting downCategory: QuestionsAuthor ""Reading namaz while sitting down
Momin asked 4 years ago

Assalamualaikum warehmat ullahe waabarakataho
in america sometimes when I’m in public places and have to read namaz I avoid reading it in public because of what people will think or may get scared or upset so usually I would sit in my car to pray or read it while sitting on a chair so people don’t think or get suspicious…or if I’m traveling and there’s no place to read namaz I would just read it in my car instead of looking for a place to read namaz. I’m 35 year old…I would like to know if this is allowed and permissible. For men and women..
thanks you wsalam

Assalamu Alaikum,

If he has to perform the prayer in this way, his prayers are correct. If not, he has to pray Qadae’ and Alllah (S.W) knows the best.
