Stopping one’s recitation during the course of the discussion

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Respected Mufti, I stood behind in prayers where these verses were recited and on the second verse the Imaam would stop the surah and go into ruku. Is this allowed? If not, is this in violation on any of the etiquette of recitation of the Quran?

فَحَشَرَ فَنَادَىٰ [٧٩:٢٣]

فَقَالَ أَنَا رَبُّكُمُ الْأَعْلَىٰ [٧٩:٢٤]


A: The Imaam has erred by making waqf and stopping his recitation in this manner. To stop the recitation during the course of a discussion is against the etiquettes of the tilaawat. However the Salaah is valid.

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