Making tayammum and performing Salaah in one's car

Q: I work in a non Muslim country and during lunch time; I go to my car and pray Zuhr prayer by sitting on driver seat without performing ablution (I do tayammum by touching my hands on the steering). Can my prayer be valid? I believe praying prayer like this is better than not praying at all.

A: It is not valid. You should make wudhu and do your fardh namaaz with postures.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
