School not allowing pupils to perform Salaah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am from the UK and currently in school. I am baaligh and unfortunately the school does not facilitate for us any place for Salaah. What should I do? It is compulsory to attend school but what can I do if they don’t allow us to pray Salaah and we have lessons during Salaah time. Now in winter, we will definitely miss Asr Salaah. They don’t allow you even for 5 Minutes to go pray and come back. Please advise me.


A: Go out of the class under the pretext of going to the toilet. Perform your namaaz and come back.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
