Who should perform the Salaah if the Imaam is not present?

Q: If the Imam saheb is not available, in that case how to do Imamat?


A: From the congregation, the one who is able to recite correctly and knows the masaail of Salaah should be asked to lead the Salaah.

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