This is one of the most comprehensive works on the topic of congregational prayer. It discusses the status of the congregational prayer and shows the importance of the congregation in the lives of the early Muslims. Numerous other topics are also discussed, including the permissibility of praying voluntary prayers in congregation, having a second congregational prayer in one mosque and so on.
The congregational prayer is one of the most important outward manifestations of Islam. Prayer is of extreme importance to the well-being of a person's religion. But prayer in Islam is more than just an individual spiritual experience. It is meant to be performed in a congregation-the foundation of Muslim society as a whole. In this work, Dr. al-Sadlaan has done an excellent job of discussing the most important fiqh topics related to the congregational prayer. The following topics are covered in this work: The wisdom behind the congregational prayer and the virtues of attending the mosque, the legal status of the congregational prayer, repeating a prayer in congregation, performing salaat al-taraweeh of Ramadhaan in congregation, women performing the congregational prayer and many other topics. This book is essential reading for all Muslim leaders and Imaams.
