Jummah and Eid Prayers
- :Seyyed Baqir Nisar Zaidi
Jummah and Eid prayers are wajib, but in the absence of Imam Zamana (ajf) both prayers are suspended. The first condition of both prayers is the apparent rule of the Imam (ajf). In the absence of Imam (ajf), if someone performs these prayers, then he becomes an oppressor of Imam (ajf) and has disobeyed Allah. Only Imam (ajf) can lead these prayers and deliver the khutbat (sermon). This is the reason our Fourth Imam (as) cursed those people who:
1. Leads these prayers themselves instead of Imam (ajf)
2. People who read these prayers behind a non masoom
3. People who do not lead or perform these prayers themselves but are pleased with those who do
Adopted from the book: "Kashaful Salat" by: "Seyyed Baqir Nisar Zaidi"
