Assalamualaiku !

Is there any hadith that suggest that a person who has not attended the Fazr salath cannot be Imam for Jahr, Asar, magrib or esha for the same day? As far as I know that imam should be selected based on their knowledge on Islam, if two persons are equal then based on sunnah like who has bared and as such. Please clarify in details. 


Wa'alaykum as-salam,

Bismillah was-salatu was-salamu ala Rasulillah wa Ala Alihi wa man walah

There are some authentic hadith that talks about the criteria for imam. Imam is the leader with authority. Generally the person who has authority should lead the people in prayer. In fact one of the responsibility of the people in power is to lead people in Salah, as Rasulullah (SAAS), Abu BAkr, Umar, Uthman, Ali (Radiyallahu anhum) and the leaders after them did. That's why political leaders of the ummah used to lead people in prayer even if they were fasiq [evil doer], like Hajjaj, Ubaydullah ibn Ziyad and their ilk.

In the case of the absence of Muslim political authority or an appointed authority people should choose the one who knows the Qur'an most, then Sunnah, then age, etc. If the one who missed fajr salah is the appointed imam of the masjid then he will still be leading Zuhr, Asr, Maghrib and Isha. It is because that is his authority. If it is meant that the Imam simply could not pray his salah before sunrise, then that does not mean that he missed the salah. He simply could not pray his salah on time. In that case there is no excuse to bar him from leading other salawat.

Allah knows the best.
