Hakim al-Ummah Mawlana Ashraf ‘Ali Thanawi (may Allah shower His mercy upon him) related that Mawlana [Rashid Ahmad] Gangohi (may Allah shower His mercy upon him) would await the straightening of rows prior to leading salat. He would commence salat when it was known that they had been straightened.
