Q 10: What is the obligatory or preferable practice for someone who finds that the row for congregational Salah is full and there is no space next to the Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) available,
due to the lack of space on the ship? Should they perform the Salah standing alone behind the row or pull someone out or the row [to stand beside them]
and if so, from which side of the row? Or should they wait for someone else to come to offer Salah with them? If it is obligatory to wait, should they wait even if they miss one Rak`ah (unit of Prayer) or the whole Salah, knowing that perhaps no one will come to offer Salah with them?
If a man enters a Masjid (mosque) after the Iqamah (call to start the Prayer) has been called and the row is full, he should try to enter the row, but if he is unable to do so, he can stand to the right of the Imam. If he is unable to do that too, he can wait for someone to come and stand with him in a new row. If no one comes, he should perform the Salah individually after the congregational Salah is over.
