Whether someone who misses the congregational Salah should offer Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid or the obligatory Salah
Q 1: If a person enters the Masjid (mosque) and finds that
he has missed the obligatory Salah (Prayer) in congregation, should he offer Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid (two-unit Prayer to salute the mosque)
first or the obligatory Salah only?
If a Muslim enters the Masjid and finds that he has missed the congregational Salah, they do not have to offer Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid; he has only to offer the obligatory Salah he missed, unless this Salah has a Sunnah Ratibah (supererogatory Prayer performed on a regular basis), such as the Fajr (Dawn) or the Zhuhr (Noon) Prayers. In this case, it is prescribed for him to offer the Sunnah Ratibah before it if he has not offered it before coming to the Masjid.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
