Sitting and performing Salaah due to back and knee pain

Q: My granny is about 67-68 years of age and due to back pain and knee pain she is unable to pray her Salaah in the standing position and it is difficult for her to do ruku and sajdah while standing and praying. Is it ok if she performs her Salaah sitting?


A: Yes

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