Can I pray while sitting in the library?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
My friend asked me one question. Do you know if it is allowed to pray while sitting because sometimes I spend a lot of time in the library and it is hard to pray every prayer on time, so can I pray it while sitting? Just was wondering because there is not another option.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 707/438/L=1434)

Doing qiyam (standing) is fardh (obligatory) in fardh and wajib and in the sunnah of Fajr salah. If anyone offers fardh, wajib or the sunnah of Fajr sitting while he is capable to stand then his salah shall not be valid.

Allah knows Best!
