Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

 


If a person suffers an injury whilst in Salah, he or she can continue the Salah in such a position that will be comfortable e.g. continuing the Salah in the sitting position (or lying position if sitting is not possible) as opposed to standing and completing the remainder of the Salah. It is more preferable for the person performing Salah to attempt completing that Salah in which he commenced in the standing position even though he completed it in the sitting position than breaking the Salah and thereafter commencing a new Salah from the sitting position.

 

( وإن ) افتتح صلاته صحيحا و ( عرض له مرض ) فيها ( يتمها بما قدر ولو ) أتمها ( بالإيماء في المشهور ) وهو الصحيح لأن أداء بعضها بالركوع والسجود أولى من الإبطال وأدائها كلها بعده بالإيماء (مراقي الفلاح مع حاشية الطحطاوي ص 435 العلمية )

However, if the pain is excruciating and he is forced to break the Salah, he can repeat the Salah in a sitting position or in a lying position if he cannot sit comfortably.

 

And Allah knows best
