Q: Is it permissible for a person to stand alone in a saff in Jamaat salaah? If not, then what should the person do in this situation?
A: He should not stand alone in the saff instead he should pull someone back from the saff ahead of him. However, if he fears that the person will not know the mas’ala or it will lead to confusion, then there is no problem if he stands alone in the saff.
