  • The Imam Does Not Observe Tuma’neenah Date: 4-2-2019

  • Tuma'neenah is a pillar of the prayer Date: 27-5-2012

    Asalaamu Alaikum, How fast should one make their salat? There are brothers at the mosque who pray 4 rakat in 2-3 minutes, maximum 5 minutes, very quickly, and these are brothers who are known to be knowledgeable about matters of Islam and known to be pious.
