Hadith Of The Day
Narrated By: Abu Mas'ud Al-Ansari
Once a man said to Allah's Apostle "O Allah's Apostle! I may not attend the
(compulsory congregational) prayer because so and so (the Imam) prolongs the
prayer when he leads us for it. The narrator added: "I never saw the Prophet more
furious in giving advice than he was on that day. The Prophet said, "O people!
Some of you make others dislike good deeds (the prayers). So whoever leads the
people in prayer should shorten it because among them there are the sick the weak
and the needy (having some jobs to do)."
