Q: Myself and my husband were leaving to go on a trip. I told my husband I’m going to perform salaah before we leave and went. He after about 10 minutes I’m not sure could be less or more started calling me. I did not reply as I was praying salaah, and he knows I don’t reply when I’m making salaah. When I was done I went to him and he said to me “stop wasting time” and I should pack away what was laying in the kitchen. The thing is he knew I was praying salaah and he said stop wasting time. What is the ruling on such a situation?
A: Perhaps he meant that don’t unnecessarily delay.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
