I am a committee member of a Masjid. In the meeting it was pointed out that the Imam and the Naib Imam are frequently absent in the namaz, therefore causing inconvenience to the muqtadis. Therefore, one of the committee members started taking attendance of the Imams. The Imams then pointed out that it was wrong to take the attendance of the Imams according to the Shariah. Please inform the correct Shariah for the management of the mosque.
