Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

How long can a person sit in the mosque before the time for praying the greeting of the mosque expires?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

The length of time that causes the expiration of praying the prayer of greeting the mosque is being firmly seated. So if he sat quickly, such as someone who sits on his feet, the

n the time for the prayer has not expired. It is recommended for him to pray this prayer, as has come in the super-commentaries of the Tuhfa, narrated from Imam al-Ramli.

السؤال: ما هو الجلوس المفوت لسنة تحية المسجد؟ الجواب : الجلوسُ الذي تفوت به تحيةُ المسجد هو الجلوسُ متمكناً ، فلو جلس مستوفزاً كمن يجلس على قدميه لم تفته التحيةُ فيندب له فعلها كما في حواشي التحفة نقلاً عن العلامة الرملي .
