    As I was coming back from school the other day I witnessed a brother praying his salah in the bus. First I wasn't sure he was praying it but after a few minutes I could recognize all the movements. He was sitting down and prayed the same way people pray in a chair. I can't lie many times I wanted to pray my maghrib salah in the bus since I have such a long ride home I often feel I am gonna miss it. But is it even possible praying in a moving vehicle? I mean we are supposed to be facing the qiblah but the bus turns at different directions making us not being able to face it at all times. Can someone enlighten me?

    it is probably better to pray in the bus than to miss the prayer altogether. Also once when i went for eid salah in the mosque the wasn't engough space for my family to pray so we did what the other familys were doing and we made a sort of circle outside the prayer room and prayed there.(however we went for the next salah half an hour later because the salah might not have been accepted.)
