Miftah-ul-Janna (Booklet for way to Paradise)


commendable for the (Muslims in the) jamâ’at and the imâm to say their prayers (or to offer their benedictions) in whispers. It is also permissible for each and every one of them to say their prayers singly or to stand up and leave without having said their prayers. It is stated as follows in the book entitled Fatâwâ-i- Hindiyya (prepared by a group of scholars presided over by Shaikh Nizâm Mu’în-ud-dîn Naqshibandî): “In a namâz that contains a final sunnat, (e.g. early afternoon and evening and night prayers,) it is makrûh for the imâm (who has conducted the farz part of the namâz in jamâ’at) to remain seated after making the salâm. He should immediately perform the final sunnat after moving rightwards or leftwards or backwards a little. Or, he may as well leave, go home, and perform the final sunnat at home. The (Muslims making up the) jamâ’at, as well as a Muslim who has been performing the namâz on his own, may remain seated and say their prayers. It is also permissible for them to stand up and perform the final sunnat at the place where they have been sitting or somewhat moving rightwards or leftwards or backwards. In namâzes that do not have a final sunnat, it is makrûh for the imâm to remain seated in the direction of Qibla; in fact, it is an act of bid’at. He ought to get up and leave or turn towards the jamâ’at or turn right or left and then sit down again.” PRAYERS TO BE SAID (or benedictions to be offered) AFTER NAMÂZ “Al-hamd-u-li-l-lâhi Rabb-il-’âlamîn.
