Parents and Namaz

Postby Esm'ail » 22 May 2007, 11:54

Asalamalaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
I was wondering when ur performing ur namaz and one of ur parents calls u(ur Mom lets say). Am I suppose to cut off my Namaz and listen to what my Mom wants me to do or should I finish my Namaz first?

Sunnat namaaz or wajib?

Well, if the prayer is a sunnat one, one can cut it off (under normal circumstances) though it is makruh. So if one's parents calls one, one is allowed to cut it off as per my understanding.

On the other hand, wajib prayers can not be broken under normal circumstances. Hence, one can not cut it off!

Yes please, because I am not entirely convinced you can do that (i.e. break a sunnat namaaz).

It's just a matter that needs to be thought out. It is wajib to answer your parents. The wajib always prevails over the sunnat. If the namaaz you are praying is sunnat, then you ought to break it and answer your parents. I think the exception to this would be if you are absolutely sure that your parents won't mind the delay if you tell them later that you were praying.

According to rule number 789 of tawdhiul masail of Agha Sistani, the sunna prayers can be prayed on horseback or while walking. And if prayed under these conditions, it is not necessary that the person praying should be facing qibla...so I guess if you can start walking to your parent while finishing the prayer, you should finish it.

NOTE: all this is only for mustahab prayers. The obligatory prayers cannot be discontinued except under certain conditions.

wa alyakum salaam

The fatwa adds that it is permissible to break the namaaz for any wordly or religious matter that is very important to the person who is praying.

A hadith states that breaking a wajib prayer is like killing the Propet (saw). Conclusion: The prayer must not be broken for trivial reasons.

According to what I know, killing The Prophet Muhammad (saw). BUt killing a prophet is still a prophet, so it doesn't really make a difference which prophet it is.
