  2. Congregational Prayer

  3. Congregational Prayer • The congregational prayer is worth 25 (or 27) times the reward of praying alone • For men, the congregational prayer is (at least) a sunnahmu’akkadah • The imam for a congregation of healthy men must be: • A sane, adult male • Able to recite Qur’an • Free from any chronic excuses • The follower must make intention to follow imam

  4. Congregational Prayer • The imam should be (in order): • The political ruler or judge • Established imam of masjid • Most learned in fiqh • Most learned in recitation of Qur’an • Most pious • Eldest • Most handsome • Most noble birth • Sweetest voice • If praying at someone’s home, master of house has the right over everyone else, unless he appoints someone

  5. Congregational Prayer • Makruh for the following to lead prayer: • A fasiq (open sinner) • A bida’ti (an innovator) • A slave • A blind man • A villager • An illegitimate child • Makruh for imam lengthen prayer such that it would be burdensome for the followers

  6. Congregational Prayer • If the congregation begins while one is individually praying the fard prayer • If in 1strak’at (before the sajdah), should say one salam to right while standing to exit prayer and join the congregation • If in 2ndrak’at of a 4 rak’at prayer, should quickly complete the set of 2 rak’at and join the congregation • If in 2ndrak’at of a 2 or 3 rak’at prayer, should say one salam to right while standing to exit prayer and join the congregation • If in 3rdrak’at of a 4 rak’at prayer, should say one salam to right while standing to exit prayer and join the congregation • If in 3rdrak’at of a 3 rak’at prayer, complete the prayer individually • If in 4thrak’at of a 4 rak’at prayer, should quickly complete the prayer and join the congregation with intention of nafl prayer • Except for Asr, as there is no nafl prayer after the Asr prayer

  7. Congregational Prayer • If one enters the masjid and finds the congregational prayer has already begun, one should not pray any sunnah or nafl and join the congregation • Except for 2 rak’atsunnah of Fajr, as long as one feels reasonably sure he will not miss the fard prayer in congregation • Should be prayed quickly off to the side • If fear of missing the fard prayer in congregation, should join the congregation • The follower must be praying the same prayer as the imam, or a prayer of a lower category

  8. Catching the Congregation • One who joins the imam after he has completed the 1struku will be considered a latecomer, and will have to make up whatever he has missed • One will be considered to have caught the imam as long as he performs the minimum bending of ruku before the imam begins to rise from ruku • When the imam sits for his final sitting, the latecomer will recite the tashahhudbut nothing more (i.e. no salawat, etc.) • When the imam starts his 2ndsalam, the latecomer will rise and complete his prayer

  9. Catching the Congregation • The latecomer will now be considered as praying alone while he is completing his prayer • With respect to his recitation, he prays as though he is starting the prayer from the beginning • With respect to his sitting, he prays as though he is continuing from where he left off with the imam • A latecomer cannot become an imam • If a latecomer is completing his own prayer and someone else joins his prayer, the follower’s prayer will be invalid

  10. Congregational Prayer • If the imam loses his wudu, he may appoint someone behind him to complete the prayer by gesturing • If the imam speaks, or leaves without appointing a successor, the prayer for all followers will break • If the imam’s prayer is nullified due to leaving a condition or pillar of the prayer, he will have to repeat his prayer • Must notify followers to repeat their prayer • Correcting the imam • Second congregational prayer in same masjid • Women’s congregational prayer

Jumu’ah Prayer • The minimum obligation for a valid khutbah is one tasbih, tahlil or tahmid • Only doing this will be makruh • Sunnah to deliver two khutbahs while standing with a sitting in between • To begin both khutbahs with the praise of Allah, the two testimonies of faith, and sending blessing upon the Prophet ﷺ • To include at least one verse of Qur’an, and to advise others toward piety • Sunnah to be in state of ritual purity for khutbah • Khutbah should not be excessively long and slightly shorter than the prayer itself • The prayer itself is 2 rak’at, which takes the place of Dhuhr prayer for anyone who prays in the congregation • Imam recites out loud

  15. Jumu’ah Prayer • Wajib to hasten toward the Friday prayer after the 1stadhan has been called, leaving any sort of distraction • Makruh to leave town without performing Jumu’ah after the 1stadhan has been called • Once the imam stands to ascend the mimbar (pulpit) for the khutbah, one may not pray or speak until after the prayer • Everything that is prohibited during the prayer itself is prohibited during the khutbah; any speech is makruhtahrim • Including verbal dhikr, du’a, responding to du’a with “amin”, responding to salam, verbally sending salawat/durood, etc. • Disliked to eat, drink, fiddle around, or turn to and fro • One should listen attentively to the khutbah
