Q 3: One Friday, female worshipers and myself listened to the Khutbah (sermon) then prayed the first Rak‘ah (unit of Prayer) of Jumu‘ah (Friday) Prayer. Nevertheless, the speaker accidentally stopped working and we could not hear the rest of the Salah (Prayer) as the women’s Musalla (praying place) is far from men’s. What should we do in such cases? Do we have to complete the Salah individually or do we have to start the same Salah from the very beginning?
(Part No. 6; Page No. 341
the speakers stop working and the Ma’mums (persons being led by an Imam in Prayer) can no longer hear the Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) after praying one Rak‘ah of Jumu‘ah Prayer, they are to complete their Salah individually for they are unable to follow the Imam as they neither see him nor see those who are behind him. However, if the Ma’mums can neither hear or see the Imam, or any of the Ma’mums behind him, before praying one full Rak‘ah with Imam, they are to start performing Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer, if its time is due.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
