Two people performing jamaat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If the time for Fajr salaah in the masjid /musallah is up, and there is only the muazzin and imam present, but someone arrives just then but still needs to make wudhu and read sunnats. Should the muazzin stand behind the imam because they know there is another musallee that will join the salaah later, or should he stand on the right of the imam and when the musallee comes to join then move back to the saff?

Bismillaah

A: If the Imaam and Muazzin commence the Salaah without the musallee, then the Muazzin will stand at the right side of the Imaam. When the Musallee joins the jamaat, then the muazzin will move back and thereafter both will stand behind the Imaam.

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