I know we have to follow the imam in prayer. What should we do if the imam fails to perform certain sunnah acts in his prayer, like raising his hands for instance?

Is it permissible to pray behind an imam who recites the Qur’ân incorrectly? His tajwîd is very poor, and the worshippers find it quite distracting to pray behind him.

If I come to the mosque late and find that the imam has finished praying but that some people who prayed part of their prayer behind the imam are still completing their prayers, should I take one of them as my imam and follow him in prayer? Can such a person become an imam for another?

When we are praying in congregation, sometimes the imam will start moving into the next prayer position before saying 'Allahu Akbar'. Often, some of the people who are following him in prayer will begin to move after seeing the imam start to move, even though the imam has not yet said 'Allahu Akbar'. What is the ruling on this?

Does eating garlic exempt a person from having to pray in the mosque? I know some people who often miss congregational prayers. When we ask them to join us, they say that they have eaten garlic so they will pray at home. Are they right in missing so many congregational prayers in this way?

Do we have to recite Sûrah al-Fâtihah behind the imam? Is the ruling different for the units of prayer wherein the imam recites audibly than it is for the units of prayer wherein the imam recites quietly to himself?

The hadîth mentions that the reward of praying in congregation is 27 times greater than prayer individually. Is this referring to when you pray in a mosque with the official congregation or is it general for all prayers prayed as a group, whether it be at the mosque, at one’s home, at university, or anywhere else?

A person arrives at the congregational prayer late and the imam is still standing. The person follows the ruling that he is supposed to recite Sûrah al-Fâtihah even when he prays in congregation. He realizes that if he foregoes the opening supplication and starts his prayer by reciting Sûrah al-Fâtihah, he will have ample time to complete reciting it before the imam bows down. However, if he recites the opening supplication, he will be unable to read Sûrah al-Fâtihah. What is best for him ...

There are some elderly people who attend our mosque and find it difficult to bow and prostrate during their prayers. They offer their prayers seated on chairs. Now, there is some confusion in our community regarding how the chairs should be situated in the ranks. At present, the chairs are placed so they extend back into the second row. This causes an inconvenience for those who are praying in the second row, forcing thee worshippers standing behind the chairs to step back when they bow and ...

I was born and raised in England but for the last year I have been living and working in Holland. My wife lives with me. I go back to England to see my parents and family once every 5-6 weeks, for 2-3 days. Can I shorten my prayers when I go to see my parents? I thought that I could, but people are saying that because I was born and raised in England, it is my home and therefore I cannot shorten my prayers, and because I am living in Holland, I cannot shorten my prayers there either.

I have always been taught that a traveler should shorten his prayers if he stays in one locality for 15 days or less. However, recently I have heard that the actual maximum number of days is only four. I am confused about what to do. Please help me out.

While traveling, when can I combine and shorten my prayers?

I work at an Islamic bookstore located within an Islamic Center. When there is heavy rain or snow, we combine the prayers, like Zuhr and `Asr. What do I do if I know I plan to not leave work until Maghrib time and the Imam combines Zuhr and `Asr? Should I pray with them and count that as my `Asr, even though I intend to remain at the Islamic Center until the normal time for Asr?

It is related by `Abd Allah b. Mas`ûd that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) performed every prayer on time execept at Muzdalifah and `Arafât. [Sunan al-Nasâ’î (volume 2 page 44). Scholars have told me that the hadîth about combining prayers does that mean praying prayers outside of their proper times. Combining prayers merely means praying prayers within their times in a way that they are close together. What is the truth of this matter?

With the advancements in technology that we are experiencing and the ease of travel that ensues from it, the hardships of moving from one place to another have been considerably reduced as compared to the past. The facility (allowance) to shorten our prayers was suited for people traveling in camel caravans so they could save on time and therefore travel during suitable hours in the desert terrain. People now say that due to the ease of travel by modern means of conveyance, the option of shorten ...

I would like to ask about the lawfulness of combining between the Maghrib and `Ishâ’ prayers in a northern European country. The scholars of the European Fatwa Council have unanimously decided that it is permissible to combine between these two prayers under current prevailing circumstances, since the time for the Maghrib prayer currently falls between nine-thirty and ten o’clock PM and the time for the `Ishâ’ prayer begins somewhere between eleven-thirty PM and twelve midnight. The ...
