Being unable to stand for the rest of a prayer. What he should do?

If a person who is praying is suddenly unable to stand up for the rest of his prayer, or
a person who had to pray sitting down is suddenly able to stand, what should he do?

 

Ibn Qudaamah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: ―As soon as a sick person who is
praying becomes able to do what he could not do at the beginning of his prayer,
whether it be standing, sitting, bowing, prostrating or any other movement, then he
should continue and build on what he has already completed.

Similarly, if a person
begins the prayer capable of performing all actions, then suddenly becomes unable to
do certain things, he should carry on as best he can, and build on what he has already
completed as if nothing has changed.‖ (al-Mughni ma‘a al-Sharh al-Kabeer, 1/782; see
also al-Majmoo‘ li‘l-Nawawi, 4/318)

 

The evidence for this is the hadeeth of ‗Imraan ibn Husayn (may Allaah be pleased
with him): ―I had haemorrhoids (―piles‖), so I asked the Prophet SAWS (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) about salaah. He said: ‗Pray standing up, but if you
cannot, then sitting down, and if you cannot, then on your side.‘‖ (Reported by
al-Bukhaari, Fath, 2/587).
