Assalaamualaikum to all,
I was recently asked to lead a prayer which I accepted with fear as I heard that those with missed prayers should avoid leading prayers and also I was afraid I was going to lead them wrong.
I lead the Isha prayer silently and then got told afterwards that I should have lead it silently. Out of embarrassment I lied to get out of the embarrassment.
Was that prayer accepted and is there a way to repent for my sin? Please pray for my parents and me.
Salaat and salaams on Prophet (S.A.W) and his family!
In your case, avoid leading prayers for the time being, and take the opportunity to learn more on Fard ‘Ain.
