Q: My question is regarding Salatul Fajr. If jamat is already going on, is it mandatory to pray 2 rakah sunnah then join the congregational salah or directly join the jamat & later pray the 2 rakah sunnah. In that case when should we pray 2 rakah sunnah - immediately after fardh jamat is over or after the sunrise?
Q: I need your help to resolve a personal problem that has made my life very difficult for many years. My problem is that when I intend to pray a lot of gas starts to build up in my bowels. I make Wudu with difficulty by stopping it and pray in the same way. This problem always occurs when ever I decide to pray.
Q: I read in an answer to a question titled "Method of Joining Prayers" by Mufti Taqi Usmani that a Masbuq should stand up right after the Imam's first Salam.
Q: I would like to know what is the minimum number of Muqtadis necessary for a Jamaat (apart from Jumaat which requires 3 Muqtadis apart from the Imam)? Kindly answer in light of Hanafi school of thought.
