If Someone Sits to be a Sutrah for Another Person, Will He be Rewarded? – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

If Someone Sits to be a Sutrah for Another Person, Will He be Rewarded? – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad
Question: Some of the brothers make themselves a sutrah for the one who came late to the prayer. In terms that they sit in front of him believing that there is reward in that. So what is the ruling on it?
Answer: “As for him being a sutrah, then there is no problem in that. As for the one sitting as a sutrah, whether he will have a reward or not? He will have a reward because he is doing good to him [the one praying]. And Allah knows best. Yes. Verily Actions depend on intentions”.
[Sharh Ibn Majah no. 74]
