I usually lead the Salah either at home or when I pray with others. A couple of days ago, two of us where praying in congregation and I wasn’t the Imam. After I finished my recitation, I was about to say “Allah Akbar” and bow. I realized at the last moment that I wasn’t the Imam and I had to wait for the Imam to move so I can move. It would have been really embarrassing if I where to loudly say “Allah Akbar” and move to bowing. 🙂
Two quick thoughts I would like to share (completely unrelated to Salah)
1- Those who get used to being in leadership position will find it very difficult to quit and work as regular team members. It requires a lot of discipline to be able to do so.
2- Those who continue to live as if they were in the leadership position and can’t acknowledge they are no longer there will embarrase themselves and sometimes others.
3- Salah will be invalid if you make the move ahead of the Imam. You have to keep your position as a team member when you are a team member or otherwise your work will be void
Just wanted to share this quick thought. It looks like quitting smoking is much easier that quitting leadership (positions).
