«Whoever prays ‘Ishaa in congregation, it is as if he spent half the night in prayer, and whoever prays Fajr in congregation, it is as if he spent the whole night in prayer»
«…and if they knew what there is [of reward] in the ‘Ishaa and Fajr prayer, they would come to them even if they had to crawl»
We see some people when they need to break [away from] their prayer [short] for some emergency, or to join [the congregation when] the imaam [is about to start the prayer], or if they have invalidated their prayer – they do the tasleem. So is this act [of theirs] correct, or will the intention [to terminate the prayer] suffice?
[At the moment] I am travelling, so if I joined a congregation of local residents for the ‘ishaa prayer, [as a traveller] should I finish my prayer after two rak’ahs, or should I pray all four rak’ahs along with them?
I live and eat with people – some of whom do not pray, and others who pray late – praying the fajr [prayer] at 9 o’clock [in the morning]. Bearing in mind we all work together, what am I required to do? Should I leave this job?
…and you mentioned that the [voluntary] prayer must be terminated; so how do you terminate it, would it be by the tasleem?
Whilst the iqaamah is being called, when is it legislated to stand for the prayer? Is it when a specific word is uttered?
