I have a question about salat and Muslims with disabilities please. I've searched the web and its confusing, having found what seem to be conflicting answers. I know that there are different opinions about some things among scholars but that doesn't lessen my confusion. I have just converted to Islam. I am very happy about it and I'm trying to do things right. I am disabled, disabled to the point of being on Social Security disability permanently. (The reason for the Social Security disability is that I have terminal cancer but its currently in remission.) I have a bad left foot. Basically it just hangs there (its called "foot drop") and I can't really move it. I had major surgery on my back a couple of months ago and that might help it come back eventually but for now its pretty useless and it could stay this way. I'll probably end up wearing a brace on it but I'm not sure exactly what that will help with and what it won't. Its very hard for me to get up and down for prostration. I can do everything else OK. Given my disability would it be alright if I just stood when I should prostrate, or maybe make some other movement rather than the prostration to take its place? If you can help me with this it would really help. Thank you.
