Performing salaah in an aeroplane.

Q. Can one perform salaah while sitting in an aeroplane? Since one cannot move about or since there are no spaces for the posture of salaah, is it then permissible to pray in one’s seat?

A. One can perform Salaah in an aeroplane. However, he must not sit on the seat to do so. He can perform Salaah in the corridor or at the back where the food trays are stored, when he gets the chance to do so.

And Allah knows best.
