Programmes when inviting Imams from Saudi

Question ID: 34466


Nowadays in South Africa, UK etc. Masjid committees are inviting Qaris from Saudi Arabia. The Qaris go around the country and lead Maghrib or Esha Salah. There is a lot of excitement and post Salah analysis of how beautiful their recitation was. In other words Qur’an has become an entertainment package. The listening has therefore become devoid of sincerity, hence the eyes remain dry and there is no action subsequent to the recitation. The biggest evidence for this is that nearly all the irregulars that came for the Salah are absent from the next one.

Aside from the permissibility of using the microphone for Salah, are such ‘programmes’ really permissible?

It is permissible to use the microphone in Salaah.
It is permissible to allow a pious, righteous, Alim provided he fulfills the Shaari requirements to lead the Salaat.
Do not let clean-shaven, transgressors. disobedient of Shariat to ruin your Salaat.
