Salaah on an Airplane


I would like to know if a person performs his Fardh Salaah in an airplane will he have to repeat his Salaah, when he lands?


It is permissible to pray Salaah on an airplane whilst it is in motion. It is advisable to repeat the Salaah after landing as a precautionary measure. However, it is not necessary.(Fatawa Mahmudiyyah, Vol: 7, Pg: 5, Maktabah Farooqiyyah) 

And Allah Knows Best
