Praying behind one that is not proficient in reciting the qur'aan
Is it correct (to say) that if the salaat is lead by one who is not proficient in reciting the qur'aan, in the presence of one who has memorised more than him, that their prayer (i.e. the congregation who are behind him) is not valid?
It is a must that we know the meaning of our statement 'not being proficient in reciting the qur'aan'.
If the intent is that he not a 'fine' reciter then the salaat is sound.
As for if the meaning of him not being proficient, is that he makes the type of mistakes that change the meaning and perverts the words, then yes the prayer is not sound behind him with the presence of one who is more proficient in his recitation.
