Repeating a Salaah in which a waajib was left out

Q: In some kitaabs like taalifat rashidiyyah it is written that it is mustahab to repeat the salaah prayed behind a faasiq (the one who trim or shave less than a fist lenght) and in ahsanul fatawa it is writen that if the salaah of a muqtadi become makrooh due to the salaah of imaam become makrooh. What is understood is that it is mustahab for the muqtadi to repeat the salaah prayed behind a faasiq. Please confirm?


A: If the Salaah becomes makrooh through leaving out a waajib of Salaah, then the Salaah will have to be repeated as long as the time remains.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
