# Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera – How to Pray on a Plane and How to Pray Sitting Down on a Chair

The speaker discusses the importance of praying during a flight, particularly during the time when the destination is near. They explain that praying is not difficult, but it is important to avoid confusion and avoid getting stuck in a line of directions. The speaker also emphasizes the importance of standing and praying in a safe way, even if the destination is near.
00:00:13 --> 00:00:16

How to Pray during the flight. I'll just go over that quickly,

00:00:16 --> 00:00:20

because that's not easy to find a room, the way you pray in a flight

00:00:20 --> 00:00:26

is timing wise, you go by the time that you are experiencing at that

00:00:26 --> 00:00:30

point. So you don't go with your timetable from here. And now that

00:00:30 --> 00:00:34

you consider the timetable of your destination. So now this is

00:00:34 --> 00:00:37

whether you're going from Russia or anywhere else, whatever you see

00:00:37 --> 00:00:40

outside the window, that is what you have to do. So if you see sun

00:00:40 --> 00:00:44

setting outside a window, it's your Maghrib time. So if you're

00:00:44 --> 00:00:47

going towards Arabia, you're going to be going into time, so it's

00:00:47 --> 00:00:53

going to be much quicker, right? Because things because the earlier

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

than us, so it's just going to be much quicker. If you're going

00:00:55 --> 00:00:58

west, it's going to just take longer, like you could go from

00:00:58 --> 00:01:02

here at 12 o'clock in the afternoon, and get to after seven

00:01:03 --> 00:01:06

after an 11 hour flight. You can get to California, and it'll still

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

be three o'clock in the afternoon. Right? So you know, you're just

00:01:09 --> 00:01:13

like three hours, but really going the other way. It goes much

00:01:13 --> 00:01:16

farther faster. So if you see it's done outside, you'd have to

00:01:16 --> 00:01:16

prefer.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:20

Right. So that's the way you do it. Now, how would you pray?

00:01:20 --> 00:01:25

Normally? I think Saudi Arabian Airlines, Saudi airlines, they

00:01:25 --> 00:01:28

have a little place for prayer as far as I know. Right. But other

00:01:28 --> 00:01:32

airlines, they don't have a place for prayer generally. So how do

00:01:32 --> 00:01:35

you pray, if it's a large flight, one of those big jumbles, they

00:01:35 --> 00:01:39

will normally have a lot of galley space at the back or in the

00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

middle, where they do the food and things like that. And if it's not

00:01:42 --> 00:01:46

mealtimes, then normally they find about you people going there and

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

putting their blanket down and praying on there. So Kybella is

00:01:49 --> 00:01:52

very easy to work out nowadays, in these flight entertainment

00:01:52 --> 00:01:56

systems, they have directions, they have a map and shows you so

00:01:56 --> 00:02:00

you just work out where Saudi Arabia is, and you face in that

00:02:00 --> 00:02:04

direction. And you pray that if you are going to a Middle Eastern

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

country, generally, you're probably going to be flying

00:02:05 --> 00:02:08

towards the Kibler anyway. Generally, if you're going any

00:02:08 --> 00:02:11

Middle Eastern flight airlines, Jordan,

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

Gulf

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

Emirates, then you're generally going to be flying in that same

00:02:16 --> 00:02:18

direction. But just check on the map. It's not difficult. And if

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

you can't work it out, as somebody, they're very helpful

00:02:21 --> 00:02:24

I've had on United Airlines, I've had them come and wake me up for

00:02:24 --> 00:02:27

the next Salaat. Because I told them, and they walked out, they

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

asked the captain what we was given, and this was like long time

00:02:29 --> 00:02:33

ago, 20 years ago, right from that time, and then they're quite

00:02:33 --> 00:02:35

useful. They're quite, they're quite helpful.

00:02:36 --> 00:02:39

Now, if you can stand and pray, it's not mealtime and so on, then

00:02:39 --> 00:02:43

stand and pray. It's about what favors flight nominee to the

00:02:43 --> 00:02:46

Middle East from here. So it's not that long. So sometimes there's

00:02:46 --> 00:02:49

not that much time, if it's a smaller flight or whatever, if you

00:02:49 --> 00:02:52

cannot find a place to stand and pray. Now, it's going to be a

00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

hedge flight. So most likely is gonna be lots of hedges. And you

00:02:55 --> 00:02:58

don't need to feel uncomfortable that you're the only one or one

00:02:58 --> 00:03:02

out, right. But what you do is, if you cannot stand and pray, then

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

you sit and pray in your seat, and you could then pray in any

00:03:05 --> 00:03:08

direction is going because you missed the father of standing, you

00:03:08 --> 00:03:10

could sit and pray in any direction that the flight is going

00:03:10 --> 00:03:13

on. But then you have to repeat it. The masala here the ruling

00:03:13 --> 00:03:17

here is that if you are prevented from doing a father of the salaat,

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

what the standing is, is an integral part of the Salah. If

00:03:20 --> 00:03:24

you're prevented from that by others, then you just do it and

00:03:24 --> 00:03:26

then you repeat it afterwards when you get on land.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:32

If you're prevented through natural reasons, like had like

00:03:32 --> 00:03:36

feeling dizzy, like in a ship or something, then you don't even

00:03:36 --> 00:03:40

have to repeat it. Right because that is not an influence from

00:03:40 --> 00:03:45

others. It's it's from up there. Right. So you sit and pray and

00:03:45 --> 00:03:47

then you just repeat it afterwards. And you obviously you

00:03:47 --> 00:03:50

will be a Mustafa. So you read to and you don't have to do your

00:03:50 --> 00:03:53

standards if you don't want to. However, when you are sitting in

00:03:53 --> 00:03:53

00:03:55 --> 00:03:58

the province of Allah Azza mula Hadith very clearly mentioned that

00:03:58 --> 00:04:02

when Rosa lorrison was outside the city, he would sit on his animal,

00:04:02 --> 00:04:05

and he would make knuffel prayer in whichever direction that animal

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

was facing, even if it was not towards the Kaaba, that is

00:04:08 --> 00:04:11

permissible, wherever you are, as long as you're outside your city

00:04:11 --> 00:04:14

limits. You can pray Knuffle prayers, sitting down with

00:04:14 --> 00:04:18

gestures, right with gestures. And

00:04:20 --> 00:04:25

I'd like to explain that when you sit and pray in your seat, you

00:04:25 --> 00:04:29

don't have to move your back at all. This is where most people are

00:04:29 --> 00:04:30

confused is how to do your record. And such is

00:04:32 --> 00:04:35

the way to do your record such that that's where lots of people

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

are confused when you're sitting and if you're not doing such

00:04:37 --> 00:04:41

though, on the ground on the floor, right? Then you literally

00:04:41 --> 00:04:45

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

for Roku and you buy more for such

00:04:50 --> 00:04:53

while you're sitting down. You don't have to go in the front seat

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

and bang, you know and go towards the front. You don't have to do

00:04:55 --> 00:04:55

that.

00:04:57 --> 00:05:00

Right. The only time you do

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

record like that is when you are going to do a search, then you're

00:05:01 --> 00:05:05

sitting down and pray. Then you'd go down for record as much as

00:05:05 --> 00:05:07

possible you get back up and then you go into such that because

00:05:07 --> 00:05:10

you're going to do a proper search though. But when you can't do a

00:05:10 --> 00:05:12

proper search, are you sitting in your seat? This is even when

00:05:12 --> 00:05:15

you're sitting praying on a chair, when you see people, you see all

00:05:15 --> 00:05:18

sorts of things, right that people are doing in the masjid, you just

00:05:18 --> 00:05:21

have to really move in your head. Because it says EMA you might

00:05:21 --> 00:05:23

00:05:24 --> 00:05:29

In henna is where you have to bow down in Arabic. So that's the way

00:05:29 --> 00:05:32

to pray in the in the plane. So when you got time and you're just

00:05:32 --> 00:05:36

sitting then you have all do then just pray like that.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:41

Pray nothing press sitting down. Whichever direction you're in is

00:05:41 --> 00:05:44

the Sunnah of Rasulullah selasa at least do it once in your life if

00:05:44 --> 00:05:44

you can
