Prayer of woman on journey
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.636 Narrated by Abu Dhaar
The Prophet (saws) said: "Wherever the time for the prayer comes upon you, perform the prayer, for (Allah has made) all the earth as a place of worship for you (the believers)."
Wherever a believer might be on this earth and finds that the time of prayer has approached upon him/her, they should offer their prayers wheresoever they arefor the Lord Most Gracious has made the whole earth a masjid for the believers.
When praying in a public place, some companions of the Messenger of Allah (saws) would guide their women to pray in a curled-up manner when performing their ruku and sujood, so that their satr would be better honored and protected.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
