Will you explain the issue of performing a prayer by sitting though it is possible to stand? How should such a person make ruku’ and sajdah?

Dear Brother / Sister,
A person who can stand but who has difficulty in making sajdah or getting up from sajdah – due to an illness – needs to stand when he performs fard prayers. He can sit after making ruku’. If he has difficulty in sitting and getting up for sajdah, he can perform prayers by sitting on a chair.
There is no drawback to performing nafilah prayers other than fard prayers by sitting. It is permissible even for a healthy person but its thawab will be less. If he is ill, its thawab will not be less inshallah.
