What should we do when join the salat in the following cases when we are Masbuk:

  1. while Imaam is in qiyam [standing].
  2. when we find the Imaam in rukoo.
  3. when Imaam is in sajdah or other positions*.

Should we just say the takbeer [الله اكبر] and join the prayers?

1 Answer 1


The question implies for Case: 2 and Case: 3. We need to say two takbeers following one after the another if we face a situation described in the question.

The first takbeer is the mandatory Farz takbeer known as Takbeer-e-Tahreema (takbeerat al-ehram تكبيرة الإحرام). this one would be counted as the first one of the six Farz [mandatory acts] inside salat known as ARKAN

The following takbeer i,e the second takbeer would be counted as the regular takbeers that we say while we do any movement in salat.

For Case: 1 we just need to say only one takbeer and attened the salat.

Note: Masbuk means a person who is late to join the salat with the Imam and misses at least One rakaat.

    The word rukn (plural arkan) is not common in all madhabs neither are many definitions of specific qualifications of acts. Also the answer may differ between madhabs, some may allow one takbeer others would consider it not valid!
