Helping someone who faints during Jumu’ah prayers



In one of the Friday prayer , a person praying besides me got fainted and lied down unconsiously.
My question is , what should be done at this moment ? Should we alert others and cry for help or just wait for the prayer to end .
Please provide the answer in detail.


Praise be to Allah.

And upon you be peace and the mercy of Allah and His blessings. 

This depends on what has happened to this worshipper. If waiting until you have finished the prayer will cause him harm, then you should stop your prayer and help him. If waiting until you finish will not cause him harm then you can help him after you finish the prayer. And Allah knows best.

Fatwa of Shaykh ‘Abd-Allah al-Ghadyaan. 

In such cases you should act according to what you believe is most likely to be the case, with regard to whether waiting until the prayer is finished will cause harm or not. And Allah knows best.
