Ruling 858

If someone is compelled to perform an obligatory prayer while he is on, or in a mode of transport, or if he wishes to perform a recommended prayer while he is in such a position, then the seat he performs his prayers on, and the wheels of that mode of transportation, fall under the rules of this first condition, i.e. they must not be ruled to be usurped.

    The wording of this ruling was changed in March 2022. The previous version read as follows:

    “If someone is compelled to perform an obligatory prayer while riding, in the event that the animal, its saddle, or horseshoe is usurped, then based on obligatory precaution his prayer is invalid. The same applies if he wants to perform a recommended prayer while riding that animal.”
