Feed [TROID] Benefit: Is it Better to Pray Sitting in a Chair or Sitting on the Ground for Those Who Cannot Stand?

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Question: Praying [seated] on chairs has become prevalent in mosques, is it better to pray sitting on a chair or [sitting] on the ground considering the suj?d [prostration] and the other pillars of the prayer?

Answer: The foundation is that he (prays) sitting on the ground. Those who are not able to sit on the ground should sit on a chair, then if he is able to prostrate on the ground—meaning that he sits on a chair at the time of standing in prayer and then prostrates on the ground—it is compulsory that he does so. If he is not able to prostrate on the ground then he gestures the act of prostration with his head and neck [i.e. bowing his neck and head downwards while seated on the chair] and this will suffice him from the [full] prostration on the ground due to the verse of All?h:
