Ending Salah when the baby cries

Q 2: if the baby cries or is choking while I am performing Salah (Prayer) beside it, is it permissible for me to end my Salah and pick it up or hold it and continue my Salah?

A: There is nothing to prevent you from holding a child while performing Salah, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to hold his granddaughter Umamah, the daughter of his daughter Zaynab, while performing Salah. However, it is not permissible to end your Salah for this purpose, unless the condition of the child becomes dangerous and it needs to be rescued.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
