considering that stilness is obligatory after ruku and inbetween the

sujud, if the imaam does not do this, but the follower does, is the

followers prayer valid, or is it valid as the imaams prayer would be

invalid? Was salaam.








Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

The performance of Salaah with Ta’deele Arkaan is Waajib. Remaining in Qaumah and Jalsah even to the amount of reciting one Tasbeeh will constitute minimum Ta’deele Arkaan. If the Imaam does not observe the minimum Ta’deele Arkaan the Salaah will not be valid. [1]
