Question to Imaam Albaani (rahimahullaah):

What is the ruling on praying behind the one who ‘Yalhana (makes an incorrect pronunciation) in Soorah Al-Faatiha and substituting [الصِّرَاط الْمُسْتَقِيم (As-Siraatal Mustaqeem)] to [الصراط المستكيم (As-Siraatal Muatakeem)?]

Answer:

Yes; if you are facilitated with someone who is better and better in recitation than him, then be with him (i.e. pray behind him). But if you are not facilitated with (someone else), then your Salaah behind him is sound and the burden of his lahn (i.e. incorrect pronunciation) is upon him (i.e. not your fault but his), due to the statement of the [Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] regarding the Imaams: ”They lead you in prayer; so if they (lead the prayer) correctly, then the (reward) is for you and them. And if they are mistaken, the (reward) is for you and the (blame) is on them.”

السائل

شيخنا ، ما حكم الصلاة خلف من يلحن في الفاتحة

بدل أن يقول { الصِّرَاط الْمُسْتَقِيم} يقول ( الصراط المستكيم ) بالعامية

الشيخ

نعم ، إذا تيسر لك من هو خير وأقرأ منه فعليك به ، وإن لم يتيسر فصلاتك من خلفه صحيحة

ووزر لحنه عليه نفسه ، لقوله – عليه الصلاة السلام – في حق الأئمة

« يصلون بكم ، فإن أصابوا فلكم ولهم ، وإن أخطئوا فلكم وعليهم »

 “It Is Better To Pray In The Salafi Masjid?” by Shaykh Muqbil bin Haadee al-Waadi’ee

 

Question:

There is a Masjid near us whose Imaam is an Ikhwaanee who has with him oppositions to the Sharee?ah and when we pray in this Masjid they ridicule us and flee from us, so should we remain calling in this Masjid whilst in the presence of this harm, considering that the Salafi Masjid is far away?

Answer:

If you are able to go to the Salafi Masjid then I advise you with that and you will gain benefit in performing your prayer in accordance to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah and also that you will benefit from tranquil affability with your brothers and much virtue and moral excellence. For indeed there is a Hadeeth in Saheeh Muslim on the authority of Jaabir Bin ?Abdullaah, who said:

ÎóáóÊú þ þÇáúÈöÞóÇÚõ þ þÍóæúáó ÇáúãóÓúÌöÏö ÝóÃóÑóÇÏó þ þÈóäõæ ÓóáöãóÉó þ þÃóäú íóäúÊóÞöáõæÇ Åöáóì ÞõÑúÈö ÇáúãóÓúÌöÏö ÝóÈóáóÛó Ðóáößó ÑóÓõæáó Çááøóåö þ þÕóáøóì Çááøóåõ Úóáóíúåö æóÓóáøóãó þ þÝóÞóÇáó áóåõãú þ þÅöäøóåõ ÈóáóÛóäöí Ãóäøóßõãú ÊõÑöíÏõæäó Ãóäú ÊóäúÊóÞöáõæÇ ÞõÑúÈó ÇáúãóÓúÌöÏö ÞóÇáõæÇ äóÚóãú íóÇ ÑóÓõæáó Çááøóåö ÞóÏú ÃóÑóÏúäóÇ Ðóáößó ÝóÞóÇáó íóÇ þ þÈóäöí ÓóáöãóÉó þ þÏöíóÇÑóßõãú ÊõßúÊóÈú þ þÂËóÇÑõßõãú þ þÏöíóÇÑóßõãú ÊõßúÊóÈú þ þÂËóÇÑõßõãú þ

?Some plots of land became vacant around the Masjid therefore Banu Salimah decided to relocate near the Masjid. When the news of that reached the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) he said to them:

?Indeed it has reached me that you intend to relocate near the Masjid?.

They said: ?Yes, O Messenger of Allaah that is what we have decided?. Thereupon he (the Prophet) said:

?O Banu Salimah, live in your houses, for your steps are recorded; live in your houses, for your steps are recorded?.?

Meaning: Stay in your houses which are far away from the Masjid so that your steps are recorded for you.

And in the Saheehayn (Sahih al-Bukharee and Saheeh al-Muslim) on the authority of Abu Hurairah (radiAllaahu ?anhu) that verily the Prophet of Allaah(sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

ÅöÐóÇ ÊóæóÖøóÃó ÝóÃóÍúÓóäó ÇáúæõÖõæÁó Ëõãøó ÎóÑóÌó Åöáóì ÇáúãóÓúÌöÏö áÇ íõÎúÑöÌõåõ ÅöáÇøó ÇáÕøóáÇÉõ áóãú íóÎúØõ ÎóØúæóÉð ÅöáÇøó ÑõÝöÚóÊú áóåõ ÈöåóÇ ÏóÑóÌóÉñ æóÍõØøó Úóäúåõ ÈöåóÇ ÎóØöíÆóÉñ ÝóÅöÐóÇ Õóáøóì áóãú ÊóÒóáú ÇáúãóáÇÆößóÉõ ÊõÕóáøöí Úóáóíúåö ãóÇ ÏóÇãó Ýöí ãõÕóáÇåõ Çááøóåõãøó Õóáøö Úóáóíúåö Çááøóåõãøó ÇÑúÍóãúåõ æóáÇ íóÒóÇáõ ÃóÍóÏõßõãú Ýöí ÕóáÇÉò ãóÇ ÇäúÊóÙóÑó ÇáÕøóáÇÉóþ

?He who performs ablution and purifies himself well, then leaves to go the Masjid and nothing causes him to go out except for the Prayer, he does not take a step except that it raises him in rank and a sin is removed from him. And if he prays the angels do not cease to pray for him, as long as he is at his Musalla (praying place): ?O Allaah, send prayers upon him, O Allaah, have mercy upon him?. And each one of you is regarded in prayer so long as he is waiting for the Prayer.?

Hence, if they are able to attend the Salafi Masjid this is a pleasant affair if not then I advise them to acquire/obtain a Masjid for themselves which is not over burdensome in expenditure for truly the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) says:

þ þãóÇ ÃõãöÑúÊõ ÈöÊóÔúíöíÏö ÇáúãóÓóÇÌöÏö

?I was not ordered with building lofty extravagant Masjids?.

And he also said:

þ þþáÇ ÊóÞõæãõ ÇáÓøóÇÚóÉõ ÍóÊøóì þþ íóÊóÈóÇåóì ÇáäøóÇÓõ Ýöí ÇáúãóÓóÇÌöÏö

?The Hour will not be established until the people vie with one another in boastfulness with regards to the Masjids?.

So the Sunnah is that the Masjid should be modest and simple. And if you are able to [construct] the Masjid, that it is like the Masjid of the Messenger of Allaah(sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) then do so, if you are not able to then do not overburden yourself and do not be lavish in building the Masjids for indeed it is opposes the Sunnah, likewise the adornments and the minarets. Also the likes of what they call al-Mihraab and that which they put up on the four corners of the Masjids and what they call ash-Shurufaat (balconies and terraces), this was not found in the Masjid of the Messenger of Allaah when he built it at that time and likewise the Mimbar which is elevated in excess of three steps.

Wa Laa Illaaha IllAllaah, for indeed there has not come to me a person regardless of whether he is from Eritrea or from Indonesia or from the Sudan and other than them from the Islamic countries except that he complains from the harms of Ikhwaan al-Mufliseen* (Brotherhood of the Bankrupt Ones) to the Ahlus-Sunnah. Then I say, to Allaah is the complaint, so they are ready to reconcile with the communist and with the Mulhid (atheist) and with the Secularist and with the Ba?thists, and with the Naasirites and with the Sufis and with the Shiites whilst they are not prepared to reconcile with the Sunni except when the time for elections draws near, indeed then they say:

?Be silent concerning us and we will remain silent concerning you?.

Footnote: * ‘Al-Ikhwaan Al-Muslimeen’ (The Muslim Brotherhood) A group founded by Hassan al-Banna in Egypt and which serves as an umbrella organisation to accommodate all and sundry, regardless of deviation in creed and methodology. Syed Qutb is another figurehead for ‘Al-Ikhwaan’ who has been refuted by many scholars. Many have been mislead in these times by this corrupted methodology.
