Performing Salah (Prayer) alone behind a row

Q 4: Upon entering the Masjid (mosque), I may find no space in the row; shall I begin a new row or what should I do?

A: If you enter the Masjid after the Iqamah (call to start the Prayer) has been announced and find that rows are complete, you should wait until another latecomer comes to begin a new row together. You may also try to find a space in any row or stand directly beside the Imam to the right side. However, it is impermissible to offer Salah alone behind the row. The Prophet (peace be upon him) prohibited us to do so.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
