Congregational Prayer Led by a Person Lacking a Body Part 3item I am a student of Islamic studies. My right hand has been amputated by a surgical operation. Recently, I came to realize that Imam Khomeini (q.) did not consider it correct for a person who has a part or parts of his body amputated to lead prayer for people who are normal. I would be grateful if you advise me about the rule regarding the prayer of those who offered their prayers behind me during this period? I am a student of Islamic studies. During the fight in defense of the Islamic Republic of Iran, my feet were injured and the big toes were amputated. At present I am leading prayer at a ḥusayniyyah. Is there any religious problem in this or not? I am hopeful that you will give me an explanation for my problem. What is the rule about performing prayers behind an imam in the following cases? i. No part of his body is amputated but because of the fact that his legs are crippled he is unable to stand up without the help of a stick and the wall; ii. His injuries include the amputation of a part or whole of his finger or toe; iii. He lacks all the fingers, toes, or both; iv. He lacks a part of one hand or feet or both; and v. He lacks a part of the body and asks for assistance when performing wuḍū’ as he has a paralyzed hand?
