If somebody were to meet a king | Sh. Uthaymeen (Benefit of salat) 

​📝
*Benefit:*
_Shaykh Al Uthaymeen رحمه الله mentioned:_
If somebody were to meet with a king five times a day, it would be considered from his virtues and he would become happy with that. He would say “Every day I sit with the king five times a day” 
As for you, you converse with the king of all kings Aza Wa Jal, at least five times in a day, then why don’t you become happy with that? 
Praise Allah upon this bounty and establish the prayer!!

Combining the salawat as a resident prior his commute | Sh. Muhammad Hizaam 

​📩

*Question:*
If a man wants to travel and he isn’t able to stop in the path for the prayer, is it permissible for him to combine between Thuhr and Asr before he travels? 
📝 

*Answer*

 

There is no problem that he does that in the situation of necessity and in times of needs, relying upon the narration of Ibn Abbas that the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم combined between Thuhr and Asr, and Between Maghrib and Isha without (due to) any fear, nor travelling. It was said to Ibn Abbas what did he (صلى الله عليه و سلم) intend with that? He said he intended not to over burden his nation.
Thus if you find a need then there is no problem to combine between Thuhr and Asr whilst being a resident, during rare situations at times of needs.

The scholars have said: it is disliked that you give the first and second tasleems along with your imam | Sh.Uthaymeen rahimahullah 

قال الشيخ ابن عثيمين رحمه الله:
قال العلماء: يكره أن تسلم مع إمامك التسليمة الأولى والثانية، وأما إذا سلمت التسليمة الأولى بعد التسليمة الأولى، والتسليمة الثانية بعد التسليمة الثانية فإن هذا لا بأس به، لكن الأفضل أن لا تسلم إلا بعد التسليمتين.

Sheikh Uthaymeen may Allah have mercy on him said: 
The scholars have said: it is disliked that you give the first and second tasleems along with your imam, but as for if you give the first tasleem after (the imam gives his) first tasleem and you give the second tasleem after (the imam gives his) second tasleem then there is nothing wrong with this, but what is better/preferable is that you do not give tasleem except after (the imam gives) the two tasleems

What do You do if You are Doubtful Whether You Made One or Two Prostrations in a Rak’ah? – Shaikh Bin Baz

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم 
⏩ What do You do if You are Doubtful Whether You Made One or Two Prostrations in a Rak’ah? – Shaikh Bin Baz
Question : A man is doubtful in his prayer in any rak’ah. He does not know if he made one or two prostrations. What is required from him? Does he make the prostration of forgetfulness? And when is this prostration of forgetfulness performed in this situation: is it before or after the Tasleem? What do you advise the one who has a lot of doubts and satanic whispers in his prayer? May Allah reward you
Answer : “If his doubt arises after the prayer, that is: after the Tasleem (salutations), this the doubt arises, then in this case, his prayer is valid and there is no prostration of forgetfulness. As for if the doubt was in the prayer, then he does the prostration and builds on certainty. If he is doubtful whether he performed one or two prostrations, then he performs the second prostration, whether it be the first, second, third, or fourth rak’ah. He does the prostration of forgetfulness before the Tasleem. If he prostrates after the tasleem, then there is no harm, but prostrating before the tasleem is better.
As for if his doubt is after the prayer and after he finished, then the doubt arises, then this is from satanic whispers. Do not turn towards it. Doubt after prayer does not affect [it]”

Holding the mushaf in Taraaweeh 

Holding the Mushaf In the Taraweeh
It is allowed for the Imam to hold the mushaf while in Taraweeh.
The proof for that is the following narration:
 وكانت عائشة يؤمها عبدها ذكوان من المصحف 
Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) used to be led in prayer by her servant Dhakwaan from a Mushaf [Reported by Bukhari in Mu’allaq form. Reported with a connected chain by Ibn Abi Dawood in Kitab al-Masaahif (no. 792) and others. The checker of the book, al-Waa’idh, graded it Saheeh (pg. 657)]
While it is allowed, it is better for him to recite from what he has memorized even if he repeats it again and again.
 عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْمُسَيِّبِ «أَنَّهُ كَانَ يَكْرَهُ أَنْ يَقْرَأَ الرَّجُلُ فِي الْمُصْحَفِ فِي صَلَاتِهِ إِذَا كَانَ مَعَهُ مَا يَقُومُ بِهِ لَيْلَهُ، يُكَرِّرُهُ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ
On the authority of Sa’eed al-Musayyib rahimahullah who said: that he disliked that a man read from the Mushaf in the prayer if he has [memorized] what he can recite in the night prayer. Repeating [what he has already memorized] is more beloved to me”
[Reported by Ibn Abi Dawood (no. 814) in Kitab al-Masaahif and others. The checker of the book, al-Waa’idh, graded it Saheeh Li Gharihi (pg. 663)]
This is because it is closer to the Sunnah of the Prophet (ﷺ) and decreases the movements needed when putting the Mushaf down and carrying it again.
As for the one behind the Imam, it is not allowed for him/her to hold the mushaf. The Scholars have ruled against it. The fatwa of Shaikh Bin Baz rahimahullah on this issue can be seen here: http://alifta.com/Search/ResultDetails.aspx?languagename=en&lang=en&view=result&fatwaNum=&FatwaNumID=&ID=1898&searchScope=14&SearchScopeLevels1=&SearchScopeLevels2=&highLight=1&SearchType=exact&SearchMoesar=false&bookID=&LeftVal=0&RightVal=0&simple=&SearchCriteria=allwords&PagePath=&siteSection=1&searchkeyword=104111108100105110103#firstKeyWordFound
The only exception is for the one who is correcting the Imam.
The proof is:
كان أنس يصلي وغلامه يمسك المصحف خلفه فإذا تعايا في آية فتح عليه
Anas ibn Malik radiallahu anhu used to pray and his servant used to hold the Mushaf behind him. If he got stuck in a verse, he used to correct him”
[Reported in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah with a Saheeh chain]

One must stop talking when the Imam is speaking, not necessarily after the adhan or when he gives Salam

The Scholars mention that one must stop talking when the Imam is speaking, not necessarily after the adhan or when he gives Salam.
Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen rahimahullah said:
“The silence is obligatory in the condition the Imam is giving the khutbah. So what is before the khutbah, even after the Imam comes, it is not obligatory to be silent. And between the two khutbahs, it is not obligatory to be silent” [Sharh Saheeh Bukhari (3/555)]
Shaikh Yahya ibn Ali al-Hajoori hafidhuhallah said: 
” Chapter: Speaking when the Imam sits after the Salam and between the two khutbahs and after completing the Khutbah is allowed
…The Khutbah includes recitation of the something from the Quran. As for during the silence of the Khateeb when he sits after the Salam or when he is sitting between the two khutbahs or after completing the Khutbah, then the statement that speech is disliked during those times whether by the Imam or those behind the imam has no evidence for it” [Ahkaam al-Jumu’ah pg. 269]
The general principle for speaking during the Khutba is as Imam Zuhri rahimahullah said:
  فَخُرُوجُ الإِمَامِ يَقْطَعُ الصَّلاَةَ وَكَلاَمُهُ يَقْطَعُ الْكَلاَم.‏
The imam coming out stops prayer and his speaking stops conversation 
[Reported by Malik in Muwatta, Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah, and others. Also ascribed to Sa’eed ibn Musayyib with a Saheeh chain]
So when he speaks it is not allowed to speak.
