Saheeh al-jami ‘as-saghir Hadith No. 370

By almaas Jan 28, 2021

«إذا أقيمت الصلاة فلا تقوموا حتى تروني» .
(صحيح)  [حم ق د ن] عن أبي قتادة زاد [3] : قد خرجت إليكم. الروض 183، صحيح أبي داود 55.

It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“When the Iqamah for prayer is pronounced, do not stand until you see me (in front of you). ”

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 5/304, al-Bukhari 637, Muslim 604, Abu Dawud 539, at-Tirmidhi 202, an-Nasai 2/31 from the words of Abu Qatada.

Grade: صحيح

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Saheeh al-jami ‘as-saghir 370.


Imam Abu Dawood has brought this hadith under the heading of

باب فِي الصَّلاَةِ تُقَامُ وَلَمْ يَأْتِ الإِمَامُ يَنْتَظِرُونَهُ قُعُودًا

Chapter: People Sitting After The Iqamah While Waiting For The Imam If He Has Not Come


And this hadith has been narrated by Mu’awiyah b. Sallam and ‘Ali b. al-Mubarak from Yahya with the extra wording of  وَعَلَيْكُمْ بِالسَّكِينَةِ: “Until you see me and show tranquility( وَعَلَيْكُمْ بِالسَّكِينَةِ)”.

Here is a recommendation to not to hurry while standing up for prayer when you see the imam coming except with tranquility and only after he is standing in front of them ready to lead them for prayer.

Hence, Imam Bukhari has brought this hadith under the heading of

Chapter: When should the people get up for the Salat (prayer) if they see the Imam (the person leading Salat) during the Iqama?

باب مَتَى يَقُومُ النَّاسُ إِذَا رَأَوُا الإِمَامَ عِنْدَ الإِقَامَةِ
باب لاَ يَسْعَى إِلَى الصَّلاَةِ مُسْتَعْجِلاً، وَلْيَقُمْ بِالسَّكِينَةِ وَالْوَقَارِ

Chapter: One should not stand for As-Salat (the prayer) hurriedly but with calmness and solemnity.

Indeed, these are some أدب‎ ( fine manners) and minute details that the muhaddithin have preserved in their books, but before them the Companions رضي الله عنهم who transmitted them.
