What do we do when joining the Jama’ah just before the Imaam says salam?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi


Hope your well and in the best of imaan.

I enter a masjid for salaat. I am late. Imaam in final rakat sitting. I say Allahu akbar,tie my hands for few seconds then go straight for final sitting. Before my knees hit the floor the imaam says assalamo alaykum  wa rahmatullah

Salaat finishd. 

Please explain how i complete my salaat. 

Jazaka-Allah in advance.



In the aforementioned scenario, you will finish Tashahud then stand up and continue to complete your salah in a similar manner as if you were praying alone (stand up, then recite thana, then fatiha, etc). 
Wallahu a’alam.

إذَا أَدْرَكَ الْإِمَامَ فِي التَّشَهُّدِ وَقَامَ الْإِمَامُ قَبْلَ 

أَنْ يُتِمَّ الْمُقْتَدِي أَوْ سَلَّمَ الْإِمَامُ فِي آخِرِ الصَّلَاةِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُتِمَّ الْمُقْتَدِي التَّشَهُّدَ فَالْمُخْتَارُ أَنْ يُتِمَّ التَّشَهُّدَ. كَذَا فِي الْغِيَاثِيَّةِ وَإِنْ لَمْ يُتِمَّ أَجْزَأَ
