بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Narrated 'Imran bin Husain: had piles, so I asked the Prophet about the prayer. He said, "Pray while standing and if you can't, pray while sitting and if you cannot do even that, then pray Lying on your side." Shahih Al-Bukhari [Volume 2 :: Book 20 :: Hadith 218]

Although it is preferable to stand while offering ones prayer, if for any genuine reason one is unable to stand in prayer, there is absolutely no harm in Islam if one prays in sitting position.

Imam al-Haramayn said: What I think with regard to the guidelines on what constitutes an inability to stand is that standing would cause hardship that would prevent him from focusing properly, because proper focus is the purpose of prayer.

Dear sister, it is perfectly permissible in Islam if one prays in a sitting position due to any genuine reason.

In my humble opinion you should also consult a concerned doctor because at times it can be a medical condition due to any metabolic change. And if Allah wills you will soon be able to offer your prayer in standing position.

Dear sister, there is a strong difference of opinion regarding braking of wadu due to vaginal gases, according to Hanafi and Maliki school of thought Wadu does not break and you need not perform new ablution. But the Shafi and Hanbali are of the view that it does invalidate ablution. Thus there is a strong difference of opinion regarding this matter. In order to be on the safe side one needs to follow the second opinion i.e. one should do ablution after the release of wind from vagina. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
