When Should The Performers of The Prayer – In The Masjid – Stand Up To Join The Rows – By Shaikh Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbaad [hafidhahullaah]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikh Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbaad [hafidhahullaah] stated in his explanation of Aadaabul Mashee Ilas Salaah [Ref A]: Should they stand up at the beginning of the Iqaama, at the end or when [they hear] Qad qaamatis salaah [i.e. the prayer is about to begin]? Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar [rahimahullaah] transmitted three statements [of the scholars regarding this affair] in Al-Fath 2/120, however what is more evident is that the performers of the prayer should stand up when they hear the beginning of the Iqaamah in order to get ready and straighten the rows for the prayer.
It is reported in Saheeh Muslim from Abu Hurairah [radiyallaahu anhu] who said: “The Iqaamah for the prayer would be called for Allaah’s Messenger [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] and the people would form rows before the Prophet stood up.” [Ref 1]
However, if the Imaam is in the Masjid, the performers of the prayer should stand up when the Iqaamah for the prayer is made and they see him enter the Masjid, because of the Prophet’s [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] statement: “When the Iqaamah is called for the prayer, do not stand up until you see me.” [Ref 2] And in another wording [of this hadeeth] in Saheeh Muslim [the Prophet (sallal laahu alayhi wasallam said)]: “Until you see that I have come out.” [Ref 3]
