Missing Two Rakats in Maghrib Prayer

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

If a person missed two Rakats of Maghrib, then when completing does he sit after that first Rakat? One Moulana told me that you do not sit


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

If a person missed two Rakaats of Magrib Ṣalāh, then once the Imām completes the Ṣalāh, he will stand up and complete them.

The procedure is that he will perform two Rakaats in a manner that he sits at the end of the first one and recites the Tashahhud.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best

فإن ما يقضيه المسبوق أول صلاته حكماً لا حقيقةً و أيضاً ليس هو أول صلاته مطلقاً بل أولها في حق القراءة و آخرها في حق التشهد (البحر الرائق 1/313)
