Praying Salah with little time left

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I saw someone recently (Shia) and he was praying Salah with very little time left. Between his sajda [prostrations] he did not sit back up but instead lifted his head up off the turbah/Mohr (he lifted his head off the turbah, he let his head hover over the turbah, and then put his head back down on the turbah). I.e. he was still in sajda position but was simply lifting his head off the turbah).

The guy was somewhat old but he seemed like he could have probably sat back up, which makes me think that this was done out of lack of time. Now I am confused... if your time left to pray is limited, is the condition to sit back up no longer wajib, just as saying "subhanallah" three times can replace the longer version in 3rd and 4th rakat? ...or did this guy have knee or back problems and he just so happened to be in a time crunch.

Sidenote: How fast can you read Surah Hamd and Second Surah during salah? I sometimes see people reading so fast that they are stumbling over their words. Is this allowed, and does it become permissible if time left is limited?

Wasalam

My understanding is (correct me anyone if im wrong please) that once you start the salah within its time, thats it? Or does it need to start and end before its qatha?

It needs to start and end before it becomes qaza.

Edit: maybe I'm wrong

If atleast the first two rakaats, or even atleast the first rakaat is read before the end, the prayer may be valid. The pause and becoming still between the two sajdas is compulsory because it represents life in this world, the first sajda being birth and the second being death.
