The standing place of the Imaam

Reference: al-Fataawa as-Sa’diyyah – Page 128, Question 19

Question: Where should the imaam stand [for prayer]?

Response: It is better that the imaam stands in front of the congregation in his [allocated] spot. And if the congregation were to stand to his right or either side of him without there being a need to do so, then there is no harm in that.
