Dreading imamate as a reason for abandoning the congregation
(Part No. 8; Page No. 50)
If the case is as you mentioned, this is not a valid excuse for your abandoning the congregational Salah. You may excuse yourself from leading the Salah until Allah cures you. May Allah cure you of every disease.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
