    ssalamualaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatooh

    There appears to be no practical requirement for a microphone to be used for certain Salah in Masjid, in particular Fajr where, unfortunately, the congregation is small. Therefore I have 5 SPECIFIC questions:

  • Prayer rows of Children

    Assalamu Alaikum
