Jummah Prayer


a’udhu billahi min ash-shaytan-ir rajeem. bismillah-ir rahman-i’r raheem

salam alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh

I was praying Jummah prayers when the brother praying beside me fainted and collapsed. I continued with my prayers but was unsure weather It was a the right thing to do? Should I have carried on praying or should I have helped the brother in need, even though other brothers came to the brothers aid?

Please could you shed some light if such an situation should occur when praying.

Jazakallah Khair



wa `alaykum salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

It is obligatory (wajib) to try to save the life of a human being even during the prayer. You should have helped the brother in need and then repeated your prayer afterwards.
