Occasions when obligatory prayers can be broken
1168. It is Haraam to break obligatory prayers purposely. But if one has to break in order to protect property, or to escape from financial or physical harm, there is no objection.
1169. If it is not possible for a person to protect, without breaking the prayers, his own life, or the life of a person whose protection is obligatory upon him, or to protect a property the protection of which is obligatory on him, he should break the prayers.
1170. If a creditor demands payment from a person who is praying, and if there is ample time for Namaz, he should pay him while praying, if that is possible. But if it is not possible to pay him without breaking the Namaz, then he should break the Namaz, pay the creditor and then pray.
1171. If a person learns during his prayers that the Masjid is Najis, and if time is short, he should complete the prayers. And if there is sufficient time, and making the Masjid Pak does not change the form of prayers, he should make it Pak while praying, and then continue with the remaining part of the prayers.
And if making the Masjid Pak in that state changes the form of the prayers, breaking of prayers is not permissible if making the Masjid Pak is possible after prayers; but
if it is not possible to make the Masjid Pak after the prayer or delaying the process of making the Masjid Pak is considered as violation of its sanctity, he should break the prayers, make the Masjid Pak, and then offer prayers.
1172. In a situation where one must break Namaz, if he goes on and completes it, his Namaz is in order, though he will have committed a sin. However, as per recommended precaution, he should offer the Namaz again.
1173. If a person offering prayers remembers before going to Ruku’, that he has forgotten to say Adhan and Iqamah, and if he has sufficient time at his disposal, it is Mustahab that he should break the prayers and recite Adhan and Iqamah. Similarly, if he remembers before Qira’at, that he has forgotten to say Iqamah.
