Getting late for fajr jamaat

Q: A person gets late for fajar jamat in th masjid. If he prays sunnah he will miss jamat. Is it allowed if he prays sunnah and does a separate jamat with people who are late with him?


A: He could make a jamaat, but the jamaat should be outside the musjid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
