Standing position for a congregational prayer of two… – (Hanbali Fiqh)

Answered according to Hanbali Fiqh by

When the congregational prayer consists of two people then it is preferable for the one standing to the right of Imam to also stand slightly behind him, just to be extra sure that he doesn’t go ahead of the Imam and as a result invalidate the prayer.
