Question

Is it permissible for a woman to pray in places where there are non-mahram men who can see her from in front and from behind, as is the case when she is on a trip or in the airport, and she is afraid that the time for the prayer will end? How should she pray in these situations?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

If a woman has to pray in a public place, where men are passing by her and can see her, then she should cover all of her body and pray on time.

And Allah knows best.
