What is the ruling on a man who prays at home and abandons praying at a Masjid (mosque) on account of disliking the Imam of that Masjid? Is he excused for abandoning Salah (Prayer) at the Masjid? What is the ruling on the validity of the Salah which he offers at home?
This person is held sinful for abandoning the congregational Salah especially if the said Imam meets the required conditions for the validity of Salah. Offering Salah at home in this case is valid but the person still bears the sin of missing congregational Salah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
