What is the view of Shaykh Mazin Bakeer on the viral Salah carrying a child video?



Islamic Text

Shaykh Mazin Bakeer was sent the video of Salah whilst carrying a child and asked to comment on its validity.

His response was the following:

“And peace be upon you, and the mercy and blessings of Allah (Most High). Allah (Most High) Knows best, In sha Allah, this does not invalidate the Salah rather this is required. However, it is best not to do it if there is someone who can take care of this child for the duration of the prayer.”
