A Question Connected to Prayer

December 12, 2014 § Leave a comment


Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked, “‘If a man wanted to get a tissue whilst he was standing and praying, and in order to do so he bent his back like someone who is bowing and then stood up again, what is the ruling [concerning that]?’

He replied, ‘His standing [in prayer] is not valid [after that action], because he has left one of the pillars [rukn] of the prayer, i.e., the standing, so he must repeat his prayer.’”

At-Ta’leeq ’alaa Sahih Muslim, vol. 4, p. 661.

“An ambassador had invited the Shaikh to open his fast with him during Ramadaan, and so he did along with a group of guests. Then when he wanted to pray [maghrib] the host said, ‘We’ll pray in congregation [here] in the house, O Shaikh.’

So Ibn Baaz became silent [lowering his head], and then struck the floor with his walking stick and stood up saying, ‘‘Whoever hears the call and does not come, his prayer is not valid, except for those who have an excuse,’ [Ibn Maajah, Al-Albaani said, ‘Saheeh’] get up and go to the mosque.’

So they stood up, all of them, and prayed in congregation in the mosque.”

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked, “What is the meaning of the hadith about performing wudoo properly during times when it is difficult to do so and waiting for prayer after prayer?” So he replied, “Performing wudoo properly during times when it is difficult to do so,’ means that a person performs his wudoo in the most complete manner during days when it is cold and likewise after each prayer he waits for the next whether that is in the mosque or after the mosque.  And that his heart is connected to the prayer such that when he completes one he waits for the next, so his heart is always connected to the prayer.”
