*MUSALLIS ON THE MATAAF IN MAKKAH.*

*If you are reading salaah in Jama’ah on the mataaf in Makkah, then you should observe that you are not in front of the imaam. Since the Ka`bah has four sides, then if the imaam stand facing one wall, then all musallis facing that wall should be behind the imaam. Yes, if you are facing another wall other than that of the imaam, then it is permissible for you to approach the wall closely in salaah.*

*There is no exception for this maslah.*

*Nowadays, many a time, the imaam stand behind the mataaf causing difficulty for the musallis on the mataaf. It is sometimes difficult to locate the imaam as to which wall he is facing. If you happen to locate the imaam behind the mataaf, then make sure you read behind him or face another wall than his.*

*In view to protect musallis salaahs, the authorities should rather make the imaam read salaah always on the mataaf near Ka`bah. Such that everyone can see him and hence read behind him when facing his wall. Then it would be easy that everyone`s salaah will be valid.*

*Reported in Musnad Ahmad that Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam said: “I am your leader(imaam). So don’t surpass me in ruku’, sujood and not in standing…”*

  حَدَّثَنَا أَسْوَدُ بْنُ عَامِرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا زُهَيْرٌ، عَنِ الْمُخْتَارِ بْنِ فُلْفُلٍ، أَنَّ أَنَسَ بْنَ مَالِكٍ حَدَّثَهُمْ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: ” إِنِّي لَكُمْ إِمَامٌ، فَلَا تَسْبِقُونِي بِالرُّكُوعِ، وَلَا بِالسُّجُودِ، وَلَا بِالْقِيَامِ، فَإِنِّي أَرَاكُمْ مِنْ أَمَامِي وَمِنْ خَلْفِي، وَايْمُ الَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ، لَوْ رَأَيْتُمْ مَا رَأَيْتُ لَضَحِكْتُمْ قَلِيلًا وَلَبَكَيْتُمْ كَثِيرًا “، قَالُوا: يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَا رَأَيْتَ؟ قَالَ: ” رَأَيْتُ الْجَنَّةَ وَالنَّارَ
صحيح مسند احمد

*NOTE THAT SALAAH DONE IN FRONT OF IMAAM IS NOT ACCEPTED(Shami):*

 وَفِي الْخَانِيَّةِ إذَا طُرِحَ الْمُقْتَدِي فِي الزَّحْمَةِ أَمَامَ الْإِمَامِ

فَسَدَتْ صَلَاتُهُ
شامي

*We request the respected imaams of Haram Makkah to lead salaahs on the mataaf near the ka’bah to save-guard musallis salaahs.* 

*JazaakumAllahou khairan*
