As salaamu alaikum,

One person is praying farz salaat alone. Another person enters and he knows that the person already praying is offering farz salaat.

Can he join him to form a jamaat?



alaikum salaam,

Yes it's fine, there's no difference between Imam of masjid leading prayer from a person who's praying and you join him. Both scenarios involve similar situations.

(Sahih al-Bukhari)
