Discontinuing one's Salah because of the Imam's Lahn in recitation
Q 2: A Ma’mum (a person being led by an Imam in Prayer) prayed behind
an Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) who made a slight Lahn (incorrect recitation due to mispronunciation of letters or grammatical mistakes) that did not change the meaning of the Ayah while he was reciting Al-Fatihah.
Nevertheless, when the Ma’mum heard the Lahn committed by the Imam he interrupted his Salah (Prayer) and went to pray in another Masjid (mosque). (Part No. 6; Page No. 284) What is the ruling on the foregoing?
If the reality is as mentioned in the question, that the committed Lahn does not change the meaning, this does not invalidate the Salah and it is impermissible for the Ma’mum to interrupt his Salah because of it. What this brother did is impermissible.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
