Question: I heard a story that (can not remember where it was) Imam died during prayer. I have a question, if we read the prayers and the imam dies in prostration and in fact while he did not say "Allahu Akbar" we can not stand up, so what do we do? (Zinnatova Khalisa, Moscow)
Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh!
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious to all in this world and in the next world only the Merciful to the believers.
You should think a little more positive! Whence such thoughts? But to be serious, in life are different. If the imam spoils ablution, he should immediately point to another man, who will continue the prayer. And if happens like you said, the prayer - interrupted as Imam cannot nominate someone else.
And Allah knows best.
