(The Book of Prayer)
CHAPTER: IF THE IMAM ARRIVES LATE AND THERE IS NO DANGER OF AN UNPLEASANT HAPPENING, ANOTHER IMAM CAN BE APPOINTED TO LEAD THE PRAYER  

No. 845

Sahl b. Sa'd al-Sa'idi reported: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) went to the tribe of Bani Amr b. Auf in order to bring reconciliation amongst (its members), and It was a time of prayer. The Mu'adhdhin came to Abu Bakr and said: Would you lead the prayer in case I recite takbir (tahrima, with which the prayer begins)? He (Abu Bakr) said: Yes. He (the narrator) said: He (Abu Bakr) started (leading) the prayer. The people were engaged in observing prayer when the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) happened to come there and made his way (through the people) till he stood in a row. The people began to clap (their hands), but Abu Bakr paid no heed (to it) in prayer. When the people clapped more vigorously, he (Abu Bakr) then paid heed and saw the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) there. (He was about to withdraw when) the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) signed to him to keep standing at his place. Abu Bakr lifted his hands and praised Allaah for what the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) had commanded him and then Abu Bakr withdrew himself till he stood in the midst of the row and the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) stepped forward and led the prayer. When (the prayer) was over, he (the Prophet) said: 0 Abu Bakr, what prevented you from standing (at that place) as I ordered you to do? Abu Bakr said: It does not become the son of Abu Quhafa to lead prayer before the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said (to the people) around him: What is it that I saw you clapping so vigorously? (Behold) when anything happens in prayer, say: Subha Allaah, for when you would utter it, it would attract the attention, while clapping of hands is meant for women.

Mughira b. Shu'ba reported that he participated In the expedition of Tabuk along with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) went out to answer the call of nature before the morning prayer. and I carried along with him a jar (full of water). When the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came back to me (after relieving himself). I began to pour water upon his hands out of the jar and he washed his hands three times, then washed his face three times. He then tried to tuck up the sleeves of his cloak upon his forearms but since the sleeves were tight he inserted his hands in the cloak and then brought out his forearms up to the elbow below the cloak, and then wiped over his shoes and then moved on. Mughira said: I also moved along with him till he came to the people and (he found) that they had been saying their prayer under the Imamah of 'Abd al-Rahman b. 'Auf. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) could get one rak ah out of two and said (this) last rak'ah along with the people. When Abd al-Rahman b. 'Auf pronounced the salutation, the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) got up to complete the prayer. This made the Muslims terrified and most of them began to recite the glory of the Lord. When the Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) finished his prayer, he turned towards them and then said: You did well, or said with a sense of joy: You did the right thing that you said prayer at the appointed hour.
