Can a non-baligh person lead the prayer?
When there are 3 or more people that are non-baligh, and they want to pray jama'ah, can the eldest of them lead the prayers, although he is underage?


Ayatullah Mahdi Hadavi Tehrani (may Allah extend his blessings):


In this case, one who has better recitation or at least, correct recitation and is more religious is more suitable to lead the prayer; in any case, jamaa’ah prayer is something good.
