Q: Is it permissible to correct the imaam during the qiraat in fardh salaah:
- If the imaam makes a mistake which changes the meaning of Quraan?
- Imaam jumps to another ayaat and realises this. So the Imaam starts at the beginning of the ayaat and still does not get it right?
- Imaam gets stuck during recitation?
Please explain also in respect to the 3 ayaats being read at this point and also if not?
1. If the mistake is of a nature that will break the Salaah, then the muqtadis should immediately correct him.
2-3. If the Imaam gets stuck, then the muqtadis should correct him.
