Can someone please shed some light on what should be done if space becomes free in front of you once namaaz has commenced. I have noticed ,especially in tarawee prayer gaps/space in the front rows become available. These are filled slowly. Thus people in rows further back commence their namaaz only for a space infront to become free.
What is the ruling on this. I have heard various opinions on this. Can someone tell me what you should do if the space becomes free on
a) ones right or left (how one closes the gap)
b) directly in front of you
c) diagonally in front of you(can you cut across somone to your right or left to fill the row in front of you.
