Reciting behind the Imaam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can I recite Surah Faatiha in quiet Salaah because I heard this is the opinion of Imam Muhammad (Rahmatullahi Alayh). Please clarify.


A: No. In all Salaah, whether silent or loud, the muqtadi must remain silent behind the Imaam.

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