Chair Salaat experience?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
1. How is it to offer Salaat on a chair? 2. If someone can offer Salaat on a Chair as well as on the ground; which is preferable? 3. If someone could have offered Salaat standing but offered on chair, will he have to repeat the Salaats he performed on a chair? 4. Under what circumstances is performing Salaat on a chair permissible?


(Fatwa: 1044/1044=M/1430)

One who cannot perform salah standing and can perform ruku and sajdah, it is better for him to perform salah sitting. As the salah is performed sitting on ground with ruku and sajdah, in the same way it will be performed on chair as well.

(2) In this case, performing salah sitting on ground is better.

(3) Yes, the salah must be performed again.

(4) If someone is unable to stand up, he can perform salah on chair.
