Ṣalāh for a travelling female in her menses
I have read in a book that if a woman travels whilst in the state of menstruation, her travel in the state of menstruation will not be regarded as travel for the purpose of shortening the Ṣalāh. Therefore, if she exits the state of menstruation and does not travel further, she will not shorten her Ṣalāh. Please can you shed light on this issue and outline the views of the four schools of thought.
Travelling on Plane and performing ʿAṣr Ṣalāh at Mithl Awwal
I am travelling abroad and my flight departure time is before the ʿAṣr Ṣalāh time begins. However, the time for ʿAṣr Ṣalāh begins before this according to the other schools of thought based on Mithl Awwal. As it is extremely difficult on some airlines in particular to perform Ṣalāh on the plane in a standing position, is it permissible for me to perform ʿAṣr Ṣalāh before I board, otherwise it will be qaḍāʾ?
