Q: I cannot sit in qa’dah position in salaah. Normally we use a chair only for qa’dah and sajdah and I stand in qiyaam. A person told me that I cannot stand in while performing salaah in jamaat. The reason being that you will not in be line with the saff and I will be standing in front of the the saff due to the chair being in line with the saff. Should I sit or stand?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
