The imaam was late one Friday so he recited the iqaamah and led the people in praying Zuhr

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:
There is a personality clash between the muezzin and the khateeb. When the imaam was late one Friday, the muezzin recited the iqaamah and led the people in praying Zuhr. What should they all do, in addition to repenting?

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who replied as follows:

 This muezzin must be disciplined; the rest of the people have to repent, but they do not have to do any other prayer. 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.
