Does every line have to be filled before starting another

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Does every line have to be filled before starting another?

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

In a congregational prayer, if there is room in a row at the front, then to occupy a position on a row behind is disliked.  (Maraqi Falah p.132)

The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said, “Allah and his Angels invoke blessings on those who arrange the rows in a compact form and he who fills some space in the rows, Allah elevates him a degree on that account”.  (Sunan Ibn Majah p.70 v.1)
