What to recite when joining the Imaam in rukoo

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would like to know if I get the Imam in Ruku in Jamat, should I read Surah Fatiha first after takbir then go to Ruku or should I go to Ruku directly?


A: The muqtadi will not recite qiraat behind the Imaam in all the rakaats. Hence, after commencing the salaah, if the Imaam is in ruku, you should not recite Surah Faatiha, but rather you should immediately join the Imaam in ruku.

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