On Giving the Adhaan if You’re Praying By Yourself


Questioner: O Shaikh of ours! Actually I don’t remember (maybe it’s in) the hadith about, ‘The One who Prayed Badly,’ that in some of its paths of narration, he ﷺ said, “When you stand to pray, then give the call to prayer, then stand, then say, ‘Allaahu Akbar.’

Al-Albaani: Yes, this is in Sunan Abu Dawud, authenticated.

Questioner: And it is authentic?

Al-Albaani: Yes.

Questioner: And this is something which confirms that the adhaan is prescribed for the person who prays alone and the one who doesn’t [pray alone but prays in a Jamaa’ah]?

Al-Albaani: Yes.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 179.

Praying Behind a Row Alone


 


Questioner: The ruling about someone who prays alone behind a row?

Al-Albaani: If he prays behind the row [out of necessity] then he is excused and does not have to repeat the prayer, but if he prays behind it out of carelessness in implementing the legislation—which is to join the row in front of him when he is able to—but didn’t, then in this case his prayer is invalid and he has to repeat it.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 90.
