Calling out the Azaan and performing Salaah on a ship

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would be leaving my country and will travel in a ship as I got selected for the Navy. I want to know on what timings I can perform Salaah on the ship as there would be no Adhaan. So, please answer on what timings to pray Salaah while travelling on a ship and if I miss Friday Salaah, how can I repent.


A: You will call out the azaan on your own and perform the namaaz.

You do not have to perform Friday salaah on a ship. You should read Zuhr. Insha-Allah you will not be deprived of any reward.

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