Q.) A person is riding in a car and he has about 5 minutes left until Asr Salat ends and he prays the Salat sitting down in the seat. Will it be valid or does he pray sitting down and then later make up the Salat? [Owais]

A.) If a person is in a car and he is unable to come out and perform Salat (after exhausting every possible effort to do so), he may perform Salat while sitting in the motor vehicle and repeat the Salat thereafter. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
