(مالك حن 4) مايب

It is narrated from the words of Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“When the Imam utters (the word) ‘Amin’, say it too , for verily, the one who utters it at the same time as the angels, his previous sins will be forgiven [1] ”.
