Praying behind a Boy Who is not Adult

It was narrated that ‘Amr ibn Salamah Al-Jarami said: “My father came from the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said that he had heard the Prophet say, ‘When the time for prayer comes, let the one among you who knows the most Qur’an lead you in prayer.’ They looked and they did not find anyone who knew more Qur’an than me, so they made me lead them in prayer, and I was a boy of six or seven years.” (Al-Bukhari)

In this talk, Sheikh Muhammad Salah clarifies the conditions that allow one to lead congregational prayer even if he is young.
