Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam MalikIt is a condition, like standing up in prayer. If he is unable to do so it is considered permissible like the prayer of the person observing it in a sitting posture. He is to return to repeat it (if he improves), unless he has returned to his homeland, in which case he is liable for atonement (dam).
