Question Number: 5928
Peace and mercy of Allah be upon you I hope to get a reply from my honourable scholars, Is it permissible to pray behind a Hamas leader, or a member of the Legislative Council?
I expect a quick answer oh brothers for the sake of Allah.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds may the blessings of Allah be upon our Holy Prophet And upon his family and companions And after:
If they are members of the government that govern with other than what Allah has revealed, or from lawmakers who legislate laws in parallel with Allah. Then all those who pray behind them should re-pay back their Salah.
