LateComers for Jamat Prayer

Latecomer to Jamaat Prayer

If a person is late for Jamat and joins the Jamat after the prayer has begun, he should perform the prayer as follows:

 

 

• Join the Jamat by performing Takbeer-e-Tahreema (by saying Allah-o-Akbar, raising your hands to the ears and then folding and placing them below the navel).

Then you have one of the following options:

Imam is in Qiyaam (standing)

Imam is not in Qiyaam (standing)

– After performing Takbeer-e-Tahreema, keep standing with the Imam.

– If the Imam is reading the Holy Quran aloud, do not read Thana.

– Also, if you believe you have joined after the first Rakat, do not read Thana.

– After performing Takbeer-e-Tahreema, stand just for a second and then by saying the Takbeer (Allah-o- Akbar), move into the position of the Imam.

The rest of the prayer with the Imam will be read as usual.

• If you had joined the first Rakaat with the Imam, you will end your prayer with the Imam.

• However, if you missed the first Rakaat with the Imam, you will carry on reading the missed Rakaats after the Imam has ended his prayer.

• A Rakaat is found if the latecomer is able to join the Imam before or in Ruku.

• For instance, if the latecomer joins the Jamat when the Imam is in Sajda, then he has missed that Rakat and all the previous Rakaats.

If a person has missed a Rakaat, he should perform the prayer in the following way:

• When the Imam has sat down for the last Qa’ada, you must only read Tasha-hud (do not carry on reading Darood and Dua after Tasha-hud as this not your last Qa’ada).

• When the Imam performs Salam, do not perform Salam with the Imam.

• Instead, after the Imam has completed Salam to both sides, stand back up to read the missed Rakaats.

• If the latecomer performs Salam forgetfully after the Imam has performed Salam or has read Darood or Dua in the Tasha-hud, he must perform Sajda Sahv in his last sitting.

• When the latecomer stands back up to read his missed Rakaats, he should read Thana, Ta’awuz and Tasmia first.

• Now he must read the missed Rakaats in the same sequence and order as he would have read them with the Imam.

• The table shows what to read depending on whether you have missed 2, 3 or 4 rakaats.

• While the latecomer is performing his missed Rakaats, if he makes any mistakes, he needs to perform Sajda Sahv at his last Tasha-hud.

• In the Hanafi school, it is not valid for the latecomer to lead others in prayer, and thus the prayer of those who follow behind him is invalid.
