My younger sister (17) has found islam al-Hamdu li-Llāh and now she tries as strict as possible to be a correct muslima in everything. She asked me to write some questions here. As she is physically disabled (she sits in a motoriszed wheelchair because her body ist very weak. She is able to move herselfe from head to the chest a little but can't move her fingers and can't stretch her arms wider than to her arm rests. Which much help she is able to stand on her tiptoes for a short time but not able to move her legs or feet, bow her upper body, kneel with her bottom on her heels, because of shortened tendons, sitting on the ground without supporting herselfes with her hands) this is werry difficult for her. Also doing whudu herselfe is impossible. Because she does not life at home the whole year its not possible to give her support for 5 prayers a day and 5 times whudu. Would it be enough if she gets washed in her bed in the morning once and then doing the first prayer in a way correct as possible with the help she needs and the other 4 prayers in her chair and/or bed? Which rules she has to follow during whudu and praying in all situations/Positions? Are there MUSTS that my be difficult?
She also wears now thick black and long skirts but is not able to cover her feet because her skin on the feet is very sensitive (if she would whear shoes or socks or cover her feet with a fabric, a seam could couse her pain from red pressure marks) and her legs are often stretched from spasm so that her feet are stretched out and are fully visible. Should she cover her feet regardless of pain if she wants to be verry correct? Is a small towel on her feet enough during prayer?
Thank you verry much for your answer!
