    Who has the most right to lead the prayer?

    Does the best reciter or the one with the most knowledge of fiQh have the right to lead the prayer?

    There is a difference of opinion among the Jurists.



    What is the opinion of the majority?

    The Maaliki, Shaafi'i, and Hanafi are of the opinion that the one with the most knowledge of fiQh should lead the prayer.



    What is the evidence of the majority?

    That Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him) was ordered to lead the prayer. There were those who were better reciters than him but no one was more knowledgeable than him.



    What is the opinion of the minority?

    Abu Yusuf from the Hanafi school of thought and the Hanaabilah are of the opinion that the best reciter should lead the prayer.



    What is the evidence of the Hanaabilah and Abu Yusuf?

    The following hadiith:

    Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported Allah's Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying:

    When there are three persons, one of them should lead them. The one among them most worthy to act as Imam is one who is best versed in the Qur'an.

    just learnt something new
    And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in the land and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but He knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record”
    [al-An’aam 6:59]

    Bro,

    I ve come across several hadith on this matter and this one was the latest i came across

    Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 1420
    Abu Mas'ud al-Ansari reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The one who is most versed in Allah's Book should act as Imam for the people, but If they are equally versed in reciting it, then the one who has most knowledge regarding Sunnah if they are equal regarding the Sunnah, then the earliest one to emigrate; it they emigrated at the same time, then the earliest one to embrace Islam. No man must lead another in prayer where (the latter) has authority, or sit in his place of honour in his house, without his permission. Ashajj in his narration used the word," age" in place of" Islam


    Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 1423
    Malik b. Huwairith rejected: We came to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and we were all young men of nearly equal age. We stayed with him (the Holy Prophet) for twenty nights, and as the Messenger of Allah may peace be upon him) was extremely kind and tender of heart, he. therefore, thought that we were eager (to see) our family (we felt home-sickness). So he asked us about the members of the family that we had left behind and when we informed him, he said: Go back to your family, stay with them, and teach them (beliefs and practices of Islam) and exhort them to good, and when the time for prayer comes, one amongst you should-announce Adzan and then the oldest among you should lead the prayer.

    Note : here they were of nearly equal age but most point out being well versed in the Noble Quran to be the Imaam.
