Today when i went to pray for maghrib, I sat on the first row. I have a habit of offering my prayers in the first row. For the past 1 year I am praying in the first row. As I sat down, the person next to me told me to move to the second row.
Now I am 18 years old, not a child.
He also said that "First row is the RIGHT of the ones with a beard and also because I was in half sleeves."
Now I do understand if they would move me back because of me wearing half sleeves (A few have said that it is better to wear full sleeves, I'm not sure on this matter ) but the part that got me confused was that why was it the RIGHT of the ones with a beard.
I just simply told him that i always pray in the first row and nobody has ever said something to me, so he let the matter go. The imaam then came and told me to go back, ofcourse i went back without any hesitation.
So please tell me, by referring to Authentic Hadiths and Quranic Verses, that if that man was right? Because the only hadith I am aware of on this matter is
"If you were to know what the reward is for praying in the first row, you would be fighting amongst yourselves for it"
