Imaam breaking his wudhu

Q: If the Imam breaks his wudhu during salaah, does the entire congregation need to break their salaah and wait for the Imam to do wudhu and then restart the salaah or can the Imam select a person from behind to complete the salaah while the Imam goes to do wudhu?


A: On account of people not knowing the masaa’il of a laahiq most ulama suggest that the namaaz should be renewed.

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