Ruling 1489

Those things that are obligatory and recommended in the daily prayers are also obligatory and recommended in ṣalāt al‐āyāt. However, if ṣalāt al‐āyāt is performed in congregation, one can say ‘aṣṣalāh’ three times instead of adhān and iqāmah with the intention of rajāʾ; this does not apply if the prayer is not performed in congregation. The legality of performing ṣalāt al‐āyāt in congregation for phenomena other than solar and lunar eclipses is not established [i.e. it must not be performed in congregation for other than these phenomena]
