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

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?

Answer

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.
