Question : #547 Category: Salaat / Prayers
Subject: praying behind unjust leader
Question: Salaam
There is only one Muslim teacher at our school and he is the one who leads the Jummah Prayer. We all know he does some things that are haraam, so can we still go to Jummah prayer? I only go because it is the only way we can read Jummah in school or we would miss Zuhr prayer. Or should I not go because he is not the right person to lead it? Thanks.
Answer: According to Sayyid Khameni and Sayyid Sistani, if one is aware that a prayer leader is not just/adl then he cannot pray behind him.

Given your question. it may be permissible to offer prayer in their congregational prayer. However, it is obligatory upon you to recite al-Hamd and Sura-e Tawhid yourself - be the recitation in low voice though.

Remember Allah knows what lies in our hearts, and we should not judge negatively on our brothers or sisters unless there is proven evidence.
