How should the person whose work requires him to take many trips through the means of transport perform Salah?
If one is traveling somewhere which requires taking three consecutive means of transportation, thus causing them to miss more than three Obligatory Salahs (Prayers). What should one do in such a case?
A Muslim who is Mukallaf (person meeting the conditions to be held legally accountable for their actions) and of sound mind must offer Salah at its due time (Part No. 7; Page No. 34) in any possible manner. Definitely, performing Salah is a duty that can never be waived. Moreover, Salah may not be delayed till its time elapses except in the case of traveling, severe illness or rainfall causing the road to be muddy which creates a hardship for people. Under the circumstances of traveling or illness, however, one may combine Zhuhr (Noon) and `Asr (Afternoon) Prayers either at the time of the latter or the former whichever is easier. Therefore, a person under such circumstances may offer `Asr Prayer at the time of Zhuhr Prayer if they please, or delay the performance of Zhuhr Prayer till the time of `Asr Prayer. The same applies to Maghrib (Sunset) and `Isha' (Night) Prayers, which can be combined under the circumstances of traveling, illness, or rainfall. However, in the case of rainfall Maghrib and `Isha' Prayers should be combined at the time of the former.Regarding such circumstances, it is out of place to say that performance of Salah is delayed, because this extension of time is prescribed by Allah (Exalted be He). Therefore, it is always appropriate to say it is absolutely impermissible to delay performing Salah beyond its due time.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
