Nasihah (Advice): The calamity of missing Asr Salaah
Sayyiduna Abdullah Bin Umar Radhiyallahu Anhuma reported that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, “Whoever misses the Asr prayer, then it is as if he was robbed of his family and his property.” (Tirmidhi)
Question and Answer:
- My husband arrives late from work sometimes and misses his Asr Salaah with Jamaat in the Musjid. Can I (wife) perform Asr Salaah in Jamaat with my husband at home if he misses his Asr Salaah with Jamaat in the Musjid? Can I stand next to him?
(Question published as received)
- Shariah has emphasized congregational Salaah for males in the Masjid and individual Salaah for females at home. However, if a man had missed the congregational Salaah in the Masjid, it will be permissible for him to perform Salaah with his wife in congregation at home.
In this case, the wife will not stand next to or in line with her husband. Rather she will stand completely behind him. (Shaami 1/572)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
