Salaah for women in public places.

Q. If a woman is in public and the time for salaah has come, could you explain to me how and where should she pray her salaah. eg in the beach or in public schools? In such a case will it be permissible for her to pray in a car sitting facing the direction of the ka’bah?

A. In the above mentioned case, a woman must look for a private/secluded area to perform her Salaah. It will not be permissible for her to sit in the car while facing the Qibla and perform her Salaah.

And Allah knows best.
