    Title: Right posture for Salah

    Question: My question is that, whether in the light of Shariah and Sunnah Muhamad PBUH, due to aching knee problem whether offering prayer in sitting posture or sitting on the chair is better of the two. Which is more advisable, while still on the prayer mat or on a chair. Please advise.

    If one has so much pain in knee that he is unable to offer Salah with sajdah, but he can offer salah while sitting on a mat, then it is better not to use a chair and offer salah sitting on the mat with gesture.
