What is the correct method of breaking the Salah?



In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind


The correct method of terminating the salah for a valid reason is by performing one salam to the right and that's it.

It should be noted that the ruling of terminating salah will differ according to the situation. They are as follows:

  1. Harām (impermissible) for example if one breaks his salāh without any reason.


  1. Mubāh (permissible) for example if you fear your wealth is at stake.


  1. Mustahab (preferable)for example to break the salāh to join the jamā’ah.


  1. Wajib (mandatory) for example to break one’s salāh to save the life of another.
