Is it disliked for a follower to lag behind his imam by prolonging his bowing (ruku’) and pros

Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

Is it disliked for a follower to lag behind his imam by prolonging his bowing (ruku’) and prostration (sujud)?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate. May His blessings and peace be on His Beloved Prophet, the best of creation, and his family, companions, and followers

If he lags behind such that the imam raises his head from bowing and begins going down for prostration, then it is disliked. Similarly, it is disliked if he lags behind such that the imam raises his head from prostration, sits, and begins going down for the second prostration. If, however, he prolongs the bowing and prostration such that the imam remains in the integral that immediately follows the bowing (i.e., the standing up after bowing) or in the integral that immediately follows the prostration (i.e., sitting or standing), then it is not disliked.

السؤال الثامن :هل يكره للمقتدي أن يتأخر عن إمامه بإطالة الركوع والسجود ؟  الجواب : إن كان يتأخر بحيث يرفع الإمام رأسه من الركوع ويشرع في الهوي إلى السجود فهو مكروه ، وكذلك إن كان يتأخر بحيث يرفع إمامه رأسه من السجود ويقعد ويشرع في الهوي إلى السجود الثاني فهو مكروه أيضاً . أما لو كان يطيلُ الركوعَ والسجودَ وما يزال الإمام في الركن الذي يلي الركوع وهو الاعتدال أو في الركن الذي يلي السجود وهو الجلوس أو القيام فلا يُكره .
