    Default What does the imam say before the salah?

    Assalamualikum wa rahmutAllahe wa barakatu,

    I would like to know what the Imam says before the salah (i.e takbeer). I would really appreciate it!

    JazzakAllah Khairan.

    ,

    There are many versions of what could be said. In my locality imams say this :

    سَوُّوا صُفُوفَكُمْ فَإِنَّ تَسْوِيَةَ الصَّفِّ مِنْ تَمَامِ الصَّلَاةِ
    (Sawwu Sufoofakum fa inna Taswiyat as-Saffi min Tamaam is-Salaah)
    Straighten yours rows, for straightening the rows is from the completion of the prayer (Abu Dawud)

    He can also say thrice:(أقيموا صفوفكم (ثلاثا
    Sh. Shuraym often says :أقيموا صفوفكم وسدوا الخلل

    Sawwoo sufoofakum l„ takhtalifu quloobukum

    See: http://abdurrahman.org/zikr/walidale...uaa/frame.html
    Imaam Abu Hanifah (rahimahull‚h) said: "Stick to the narrations and the way of the salaf, and beware of the newly invented matters for all of it is innovation" (Sawnul Muntaq of as-Suyuti pg.32)

    Along with the straightening and aligning, you also get the, "Kindly switch off mobile phones", however, there's always one, with the cringing Bollywood ring tone.

    Cringing --> cringe-worthy.
    ***
    And have you seen the man who takes the call in the Mosque, luckily not during the Salah?
    There is this retired old man in one of the mosques that I regularly go to.
    One of these days I shall give him a brain hemorrhage.

    why do non arabs say this. the local language will do. infact just to look at the the feet is enough.

    i laugh when these guys start "istawoo......" then we only 4 guys making salah together.
