Answer:

 

Praying alone in row congregation

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Wabsah relates that the Messenger of Allah (saws) saw a man praying behind the rows by himself and the Prophet (saws) ordered him to repeat his salah.

Related by Bukhari and Muslim.

 

The scholars are of the opinion that if there is absolutely no place in the rows and one stands alone immediately behind the rows with the intention that someone will join him in the new row and offers his prayers in congregation, regardless of whether someone joins him or not, their prayer is valid and there is no harm.

 

The above quoted hadith whereby the Messenger of Allah (saws) ordered the person to repeat his prayer, in the opinion of the majority of the scholars and jurists, is because the person was praying with the congregation but was standing alone quite a distance behind and away from the congregation. And Allah Alone Knows Best.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
