Performing Salat in Aircraft Lavatories


Salam to all,
In the name of Allah most Gracious and Merciful,

I’m working as a flight attendant and my company does not allow any form of religious activities on board across all religions. As a working crew and coming from a diverse community It is impossible for me to perform my salat on the crew seat. The only place available is the aircraft lavatories.

With crossing many timezones and facing fatigue on long haul flights, it would be good for me to keep up my prayers on time instead of Qada’ upon reaching my destination. Can I Salat in the Aircraft Lavatories, specifically the First Class as its so much bigger and cleaner. Thank you and God bless.


wa `alaykum salam,
Allah swt made it easy for us as He made the whole world a Masjid. We can pray anywhere but in the toilet or where there is urine or feces.
