Q: I follow Hanafi madhab. Since a few days, our Imam is praying dua in fardh of fajr salaah. On the very first occasion he did this dua in the fardh of fajr in the second rakah before going to ruku and from the next day he started doing it after getting up from ruku.
Now with the differnce in these 2 days, is our fardh salaah valid on both occassions? I know about the special prayers to make when in distress if the Islamic world is facing problems but is it allowed in the Hanafi madhab?
A: Yes, it is valid and he is supposed to do it after the ruku.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
