They got a shock when their imaam recited al-Faatihah in English

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What should be done if a brother puts himself forward to lead the salat, and then he begins to read the Al-fatiha in english. Should those behind him leave the salat or continue to pray with him.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

You should say “Subhaan Allaah!” to him. If he pays attention, then all well and good, otherwise you should leave the salaah and pray on your own. It is not permissible for you to continue praying behind him. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
