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?
- What should a person whose wudu is invalidated while performing a prayer do?
- Is it valid for the congregation to salute after the imam salutes to the right and left?
- What are the decrees about awrah places being opened while performing prayers? Is it permissible to perform prayers wearing a garment with a hole as big as a walnut a bit over the knee?
- If a person who has started to follow the imam later gets up and continues the prayer after the imam salutes to the right and performs sajdah as-sahw, what should he (masbuq) do?
- 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 can be the reasons for the decrease in the thawabs of prayers (salat)?
- I follow Hanafi madhhab. How should I perform prayers in congregation in a place where those who follow Shafii madhhab are in majority?
- Is the wudu of a person who undergoes dialysis broken?
- Imam’s breaking wudu; istikhlaf. What should the congregation do if the wudu of the imam is invalidated while leading a fard prayer?
