There seems to be a consensus by many public opinion commenter that Sowore’s Sahara Reporters goofed big time .
“It’s like Sahara Reporters is short of tangible news to write about”
…pls this shoud not be any issue…and if there be any sickness in his body may God heal him..
Well for me, there nothing wrong with it, this between him and God, he knows his conditions more than every other person and God is the one who answers prayer and he also knows if he is cheating on him or not so it left for God to judge and us. It is obvious the man is old and may not be able to sit that way and pray again.
A blunder post from Sahara reporters
We might not be happy with Buhari with the way he is handling the country, but delving into his religious life is totally uncalled for.
Go to masjid haram in Saudi the most important mosque , aged people sat on chairs .
Standing during prayer is an obligatory pillar which cannot be omitted. It is not permissible for anyone to pray sitting unless he is unable to stand, or standing is very difficult for him, or he is sick and there is the fear that his sickness may become worse if he prays standing up.
That also includes a paralyzed person who is unable to stand at all, and an elderly person for whom it is difficult to stand, and a sick person who will be harmed by standing because it will either make his sickness worse or delay his recovery.
The basic principle concerning that is the report narrated by al-Bukhaari (1050) from ‘Imraan ibn Husayn (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: I had haemorrhoids, and I asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about praying. He said: “Pray standing; if you cannot, then sitting; and if you cannot, then lying on your side.”
Sahara this Should be withdrawn. What is wrong if he sits?
Please criticising his siting shows hatred. Why hate ?
There should be no room for hatred, young people please leave the man alone, he is aged.
2023 now you that is shouting up and down will vote for another old person.
So please leave baba in peace.
