the naafilah prayer when the congregational prayer has started
*Please appropriately reference
this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Noble Shaykh, what is the overall opinion as to what to do
when performing the naafilah
prayer and the (congregational) prayer has started?
The overall opinion regarding the naafilah
(prayer) is that if the (congregational) prayer has started
while he is in the second (final) rak'ah,
then he should briskly complete it. If he is in the first
then he should break his (naafilah)
prayer (in order to join the congregational prayer).
