Narrated: Aws ibn Damaj
from Sayyidina Abu Mas'ud Ansari (RA) that Allah's Messenger (SAW) said, "One should act as imam of people who is most read in the Quran. If they are at par with each other in its recital then the most learned about the sunnah. If they are equal regarding the sunnah then he who preceded others in hijrah (migration to Madinah) and if they emigrated together then the oldest of them. And no one should be made to lead (another) where he is authoritative and no one should sit on the place of honour (of the owner in his house without his permission). [Ahmed 7062, Abu Dawud 582, Nisai 776, Ibn e Majah 980]
