Ta’hiyatul Masjid – Shaykh Saaleh ibn Muhammad al-Luhaydaan
Q: Should Ta’hiyatul Masjid be left off while the Imaam is on the minbar?
A: Do not omit Ta’hiyatul Masjid, pray while the Imaam is speaking. A man entered the masjid while the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was speaking, so he sat. He was asked, ‘Did you pray two raka’ah ?’, to which he replied in the negative. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, ‘Stand and pray two raka’ah.’ This statement according to the people of knowledge gives precedence that whoever enters the masjid while the Imaam is speaking, it is upon them to offer two units of prayer before sitting.
