Reminding the Father of the Congregational Prayer

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Mufti Muhammad Imad Ali


When my dad takes us out around the time of prayer I get worried that he’ll miss his congregation even though I try to emphasize this to him and avoid going. As I’m a female I can pray anytime but he’ll miss his congregation. Will I be held sinful for this, going with him? Even when the entire family goes, what should I do?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


The most you can do as a daughter is keep reminding you’re father and also try to reschedule the time when going out for example going out after salah so your father doesn’t miss the congregation. However, whether you’re father misses the congregation or not, you won’t be held accountable Insha’Allah.

Only Allah knows best.
