Congregating for The Five Daily Prayers

The meaning of the Quran states:

When you are among them, and you lead them in prayer (i.e. the prayer of fear), a group of them are commanded to stand with you. [4:102]‬

Shaykh Mansoor al-Buhootee [d. 1051 AH], may Allah have mercy on him, said:

Allah commanded that congregation be performed in a state of fear, so it is more deserving to be performed if there is no fear. (1)
