Leaving a meeting to perform salaah with jamaat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to know of ways for performing Salah with jamaat. For exampple, an office meeting was held and it was also the time of Zohar. As prayer with Jammat is Sunnah Mukadah, do I leave the meeting or perform my pray alone?


A: The more important thing is to perform the namaaz with jamaat and continue with the meeting thereafter. Is there any comparison with the meeting of Allah with the meeting of people.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
