A person was not sure whether he was in front of the imaam. What is the ruling?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a member of the congregation is not sure whether the place where he was standing was in front of the imaam or not, what is the ruling in this case?

Praise be to Allaah.
His prayer is valid, as was stated by al-Shaafa’i. This applies whether he was further ahead of the imaam or behind him.
From Fatawa al-Imam al-Nawawi, p. 58.
But it is not permissible to deliberately stand in a place in front of the imaam. And Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
