Question

My question is: is it permissible for a woman to pray in places where there are non-mahram men who can see her from in front and from behind, as is the case when she is on a trip or in the airport, and she is afraid that the time for the prayer will end? How should she pray in these situations? May Allaah reward you with all good.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

If a woman has to pray in a public place, where men are passing by her and can see her, then she should cover all of her body and pray on time. And Allaah knows best.
