What is Salaah with Jamaat?
To perform the 5 daily Salaah with Jamaat is Waajib and to Neglect the Jamaat is very sinful.
Note: It is NOT Waajib upon women, children, sick persons, those nursing the sick, very old persons and the Blind to attend the Jamaat.
A Jamaat consists of at least 2 persons: the Imam and the Muqtadee. In case of 2: The Muqtadee should stand at the Right of the Imaam in such a manner that the Toes of the Muqtadee should be parallel to the ankle of the Imaam. If there are 2 or more Muqtadees, the Imaam should stand ahead and the Muqtadees behind.
The manner in which people should stand in Jamaat:
The Muqtadee’s should stand close to each other and in a straight row. No space should be left in between. Children should stand in the back row. It is Makrooh to include children in the men’s row.
