Dear Brother / Sister,
The prayer of a person who follows the imam is invalidated if he performs one part of prayer before the imam. For example, his prayer is invalidated if he performs ruku (bowing down) before the imam…
However, his wudu is not invalidated. He must perform his prayer again since his prayer is invalidated.
Questions on Islam
- Does performing ruku and sajdah (prostration) before the command of the imam invalidate the prayer?
- Imam’s breaking wudu; istikhlaf. What should the congregation do if the wudu of the imam is invalidated while leading a fard prayer?
- Things that invalidate prayer
- What is Wudu (Ablution)?
- What is amal kathir in prayer? I know that changing the place of things in prayer invalidates prayer. Is prayer invalidated if a person changes the place of things involuntarily?
- What are the necessary qualities for an Imam to have in order to lead a congregational prayer?
