Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

 

In such circumstances such as your, it will be permissible to perform salāh in the sitting posture. May Allah strengthen your Imān and increase your zeal to earn His pleasure. Amīn.

 

( إذا تعذر ( 1 ) وهو الحقيقي ومثله الحكمي ذكره فقال ( أو تعسر ) كل القيام ( بوجود ألم شديد أو خاف ) بأن غلب على ظنه بتجربة سابقة أو إخبار طبيب مسلم حاذق أو ظهور الحال ( زيادة المرض أو ) خاف ( بطأه ) أي طول المرض ( به ) أي بالقيام ( صلى قاعدا بركوع وسجود ) لما روى عن عمران بن الحصين قال كان بي بواسير فسألت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عن الصلاة فقال ” صل قائما فإن لم تستطع فقاعدا فإن لم تستطع فعلى جنب ” زاد النسائي ” فإن لم تستطع فمستلقيا لا يكلف الله نفسا إلا وسعها ” (مراقي الفلاح مع حاشية الطحطاوي
