In a congregational prayer, if there is room in a row at the front, then to occupy a position on a row behind is disliked. (Maraqi Falah p.132)
The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said, “Allah and his Angels invoke blessings on those who arrange the rows in a compact form and he who fills some space in the rows, Allah elevates him a degree on that account”. (Sunan Ibn Majah p.70 v.1)
