Joining the row behind the imaam
Question: From where should
the row begin in prayer, does it begin from behind the imaam,
or from the far right?
Response: The first row in
prayer begins from behind the imaam
and then fills up to the right and left, not from the far
right - as the questioner said, and likewise the second row
and those after it.
with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and
salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
