others to attend the prayer
*Please appropriately reference
this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
A person saw some workers on his way to the masjid
so he stopped by them and encouraged them to attend the salaah
and gave them some advice. As a result of being delayed by
the workers, he missed the Takbeeratul-Ihraam (the saying
Akbar when beginning the salaah).
So is he rewarded as one who caught the Takbeeratul-Ihraam
He is rewarded more than those who caught the Takbeeratul-Ihraam
since being present for the Takbeeratul-Ihraam is a Sunnah.
As for advising these (workers) and encouraging them with
good, then that is obligatory. Therefore, he is rewarded more
for this than having missed out on (the reward for attending)
