    Title: Salah

    Question: My question is about salah. Sometime when I am traveling in underground Rail Metro, and there is very short time of salah and it seems that I will miss my prayer and qaza. In Metro I cannot find Qiblah direction as well no water available for wudhu. The journey is long enough to look like I might qaza when traveling in underground metro and in plane too. How I pray salah? My second part of the question is about position in plane and metro we cannot sit in proper salah position. Please answer me. Can I pray salah on the seat of metro (underground rail), and on the seat while traveling in plane without wudhu with tayammum or go for qaza of salah. Please reply I am so confused in this matter.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 555/449/B=1434) (1) Be prepared for salah and keep on viewing your watch. Have wudhu before the time of salah starts and in case you do not know Qiblah you should do taharri i.e. determine Qiblah by your heart and offer salah to the direction where your heart tends. (2) In case you offer salah standing you feel dizzy or you fear to fall down then you may offer salah sitting. If there is water available in latrine then it is necessary to perform wudhu otherwise tayammum shall suffice. It is not lawful to miss salah.
