Seeking medical treatment during prayer times
Question:

Some of those that are sick have operations performed on them during prayer times, and so after the operation is finished there remains in the person anesthetization for up to two hours whilst the time of the prayers passes by and ceases so what is to be done?
Answer:

That which seems apparent is that he is forgiven/excused from them if it is that the prayer time has finished, as for if there is still some time remaining for the prayer, then he should pray under whatever condition is possible for him, this is because making up the prayer (once missed) has not been established except for in the case of sleep and forgetfulness. So the Prophet (Sallaallaahu ‘alaihi wa ‘alaa aalihi wa sallam) said: ((whomsoever slept through the time of his prayer, or forgets concerning it, then its time is when he remembers it.)) (Reported by Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim)
