Question

Is saying “Bala (Yes indeed)” during
the prayer after the verse “Is not
Allaah the Best of judges?” [al-Teen
95:5] after other verses regarded as
invalidating the prayer?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.
Firstly:
Speaking during prayer was
permitted. The Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him)
and his companions used to return
salaams when they were praying.
Then that was forbidden, and the
scholars are unanimously agreed
that it is forbidden to speak during
the prayer and the prayer is
invalidated if one does that
knowingly and deliberately.
It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn
Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased
with him) said: We used to greet
the Messenger of Allaah (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him)
when he was praying, and he would
return the greeting. When we came
back from being with the Negus, we
greeted him and he did not respond.
We said: O Messenger of Allaah, we
used to greet you when you were
praying and you would return the
greeting. He said: “One should
concentrate fully in prayer.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari(1141) and
Muslim (538).
It was narrated that Zayd ibn Arqam
said: We used to speak during the
prayer; a man would speak to his
neighbour whilst they were praying,
until the verse was revealed: “And
stand before Allaah with obedience
[and do not speak to others during
the Salaah (prayers)]” [al-Baqarah
2:238]. Then we were commanded to
remain silent and forbidden to
speak.
Narrated by al-Bukhaari (1142) and
Muslim (539).
Al-Nawawi said:
With regard to the words: “And
stand before Allaah with obedience
[and do not speak to others during
the Salaah (prayers)]” [al-Baqarah
2:238], it was said: What is meant is
obedient, or silent.
The phrase “Then we were
commanded to remain silent and
forbidden to speak” indicates that
all kinds of human speech are
forbidden during prayer. The
scholars are unanimously agreed
that speaking deliberately during
the prayer, knowing that it is
forbidden and for no purpose
invalidates the prayer. End quote.
Sharh Muslim (5/27).

Secondly:
Al-Nawawi said in Adaab Qiraa’at al-
Qur’aan:
Chapter on the etiquette that is
dictated by need.
If he recites the words of Allaah
(interpretation of the meaning):
“Allaah sends His Salaah (Graces,
Honours, Blessings, Mercy) on the
Prophet (Muhammad), and also His
angels (ask Allaah to bless and
forgive him)” [al-Ahzaab 33:56], it is
mustahabb for him to say: “Sall-
Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallama
tasleeman (May Allaah send
blessing and peace upon him).”
If one recites the verse “Is not
Allaah the Best of judges?” [al-Teen
95:5] or “Is not He (Allaah Who does
that) Able to give life to the
dead?” [al-Qiyaamah 75:40], it is
mustahabb to say: “Bala wa ana ‘ala
dhaalika min al-shaahideen (Yes
indeed, and I am among those who
bear witness to that)”. If he recites
“In what message after this will
they then believe?” [al-A’raaf 7:185]
it is mustahabb to say “Aamantu
Billaah (I believe in Allaah).”
All of that it is mustahabb for the
reciter to say whether during prayer
or otherwise.
A number of ahaadeeth have been
narrated concerning that, some of
which are saheeh and some are
da’eef.
Abu Dawood (884) narrated that
Moosa ibn Abi ‘Aa’ishah said: A man
was praying on the roof of his
house, and when he recited: “Is not
He (Allaah Who does that) Able to
give life to the dead?” [al-Qiyaamah
75:40] he said: “Subhaanaka fa bala
(Glory to be You, yes indeed).” They
asked him about that and he said:
“I heard it from the Messenger of
Allaah (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him).” Classed as
saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi
Dawood.
It was narrated from Ismaa’eel ibn
Umayyah: I heard a Bedouin say: I
heard Abu Hurayrah say: The
Messenger of Allaah (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him)
said: ‘Whoever among you recites
Wa’l-teeni wa’l-zaytoon (“By the fig,
and the olive” Soorat al-Teen 95),
when he reaches the end of it, “Is
not Allaah the Best of judges?” [al-
Teen 95:5], let him say: “Bala wa
ana ‘ala dhaalika min al-shaahideen
(Yes indeed, and I am among those
who bear witness to that)”.
Whoever recites La uqsimu bi yawm
il-qiyaamah (“I swear by the Day of
Resurrection” Soorat al-Qiyaamah
75), when he reaches the words “Is
not He (Allaah Who does that) Able
to give life to the dead?” [al-
Qiyaamah 75:40], let him say: “Bala
(Yes indeed). And whoever recites
Wa’l-mursalaat (“By the winds (or
angels or the Messengers of Allaah)
sent forth one after another” Soorat
al-Mursalaat 77), when he reaches
the words “Then in what statement
after this (the Qur’aan) will they
believe?” [al-Mursalaat 77:50], let
him say: Aamanna Billaah (We
believe in Allaah).’
Narrated by Abu Dawood (887). It
was classed as da’eef by al-Albaani
in Da’eef Abi Dawood.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said in al-
Sharh al-Mumti’ (3/397-399):
If the reciter says “Is not He (Allaah
Who does that) Able to give life to
the dead?” [al-Qiyaamah 75:40],
then he may say: Bala (Yes indeed),
or Subhaanaka fa bala (Glory be to
You, yes indeed), because there is a
hadeeth about that from the
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) and Imam
Ahmad stated that. Imam Ahmad
said: If he recites “Is not He (Allaah
Who does that) Able to give life to
the dead?” [al-Qiyaamah 75:40]
during prayer or otherwise, he may
say, “Subhaanaka fa bala (Glory be
to You, yes indeed)” both in
obligatory and naafil prayers.
If he recites “Is not Allaah the Best
of judges?” [al-Teen 95:5], he should
say, “Subhaanaka fa bala (Glory be
to You, yes indeed)”.
If he recites, “Is there any ilaah
(god) with Allaah?” [al-Naml 29:60],
he may say, La ilaaha ill-Allaah
(There is no god but Allaah). End
quote.
Thus it is clear that these phrases
are not included in the speech that
is forbidden during prayer and which
invalidates it; rather what is
forbidden during prayer is normal
human speech as the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said: “This prayer is not
the right place for any of the
people’s speech.” Narrated by
Muslim (537).
Al-Nawawi said: What this means is
that it is not the right place for any
of the people’s usual speech and
conversation. End quote.
And Allaah knows best.
