Q. Assalamu alaykum I would like to know the ruling on a woman sitting to read salaah in the latter stages of her pregnancy? Is it allowed? (Question published as received) A. In general, a pregnant woman is not exempt from standing and performing Salaah. However, if a pregnant woman experiences severe difficulty in making Qiyaam (standing) and/or Ruku and Sajdah, then she may sit and perform Salaah, irrespective if this occurs during the early or latter stages of pregnancy. (Tahtaawi Ala Maraaqil Falaah 1/400/1) And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best Mufti Ismaeel Bassa Confirmation: Mufti Ebrahim Desai (The answer hereby given is specifically based on the question asked and should be read together with the question asked. Islamic rulings on this Q&A newsletter are answered in accordance to the Hanafi Fiqh unless otherwise stated.) Fatwa Department Jamiatul Ulama (KZN)
There are seven characteristics that Allaah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) mentioned about the salaah of the hypocrites: 1) They stand in salaah lazily. 2) They only remember Allaah a little in the salaah. 3) They show off for the people (i.e. they pray to be seen). 4) They don’t fear Allaah. 5) They don’t establish the salaah at its proper time. 6) They don’t perform the prayer in congregation. 7) They don’t have any tranquility in the salaah, instead they peck like a bird. May Allah free our hearts from hypocrisy. (Ameen)
