Once a Muslim scholar was flying to a country with an airplane. When the time for salah came, he went to the bathroom to make wudhu (ablution).

Since, the bathrooms in airplanes are very small, he had to open the door to lift up his foot to the sink. An air hostess came to him and told him not to wash his feet in the sink because they are dirty.

The scholar calmly asked the hostess "How many times do you wash your face?"

The hostess replied "Usually once or twice." Then the scholar replied "I wash my feet five times a day for prayers. Therefore, my feet are cleaner than your face."

The purpose of this story is not to get a good laugh.
However, it teaches us how regular we should be about prayers.

I often wonder about this.

Assuming that the plane is flying in the direction of Mecca, we could just perform the solat sitting in our chair (?), but if the plane is going in a different direction, then how? Like on a bus, or train.

Thanks.. :exhausted

The Hostess replies "But you do not need to do it 5 times if you keep your Wudhu through the day like I do!" :D

Muslims both Muslim Men and Muslim Women/Muslim Boys/Muslim Girls/Males Females Muslims do have Cleaner Feet than Non Muslims and cleaner other body parts. In fact a Man told me long ago he likes Muslim Womn because they are Cleaner they Wash 5 Times a Day more than anyone agree ? Muslims wash their Feet Non Muslims walk around offen barefoot inside or outside and get their Feet dirty and never wash them if ever I have seen it many times.
