Q: I am working on a ship for 6 months at a time. Sometimes we go from America to China and I cannot find the qibla. On sea, our normal application does not work properly so it is difficult to find the qibla. I am performing salaah without knowing qibla direction. Is it permissible?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
