Question

I have to travel to another country which is
in another time zone. The flight takes very
long hours. When I start the journey in the
morning my time, I will arrive there also in
the morning according to that country's time
and is still in the same day. As such, how can
I perform combined and shorten prayers in
the flight because the further I move away
from my city, the time goes further
backward instead of forward. After I reach
my destination, should I repeat my prayers
because of this time difference? Or should I
not perform any prayers and wait until I
reach my destination to perform the
prayers? Also what if I travel to a country on
12/2 and arrive there 11/2 because of this
time zone difference May Allah rewards all
your good works.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

The prayer time for the passengers who are
in a plane is the time when the prayer is due
when they are on the plane, and the time of
the country from where they travelled or the
time of their destination country should not
be considered. For instance if Fajr prayer is
due while they are on the plane, it is an
obligation on them to perform it, and when
the sun is at its meridian, they should
perform Thuhr prayer, and so forth.
However, if they will land in a place where it
would be possible for them to perform the
prayer on the ground before its time is over,
then they should wait until they will arrive
there.
Nonetheless, if they fear that the time of the
prayer will elapse when they arrive there,
they are obliged to perform it on the plane
according to their ability.

The questioner should know that when
travelling by plane, she could not reach the
destination before the time of departure,
because the plane is not faster than the
revolving of the earth. If we presume that
one is travelling westward, which means that
the time there [in the west] is inferior from
the time from where the plane departed, the
difference of the time of the earth which is
due to its revolving on itself, though, is
faster than the speed of the plane, therefore,
it is not possible to arrive one day before
the day of departure, and it is not even
possible to arrive at the same time of
departure, unless a faster means of
transportation [then the plane] is invented,
but this is not available now.

Allah Knows best.
