Assalam-u-Alaikum. I enterd in
congregational prayer while Imam was
reciting Quran after Fatiha in first Rakah
should I have to listen the Qiraat of Imam or
should I say first al-Fatiha, cause I read no
prayer done without reading al-Fatiha. now
in this case what will be my position should I
perform another Rakah after Imam fishes the
prayer or else may ALLAH bless you

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

If you join the prayer with the Imaam at any
Rak'ah while he is standing and before he
bows down, then you should recite Al-
Faatihah (chapter one), because according to
the preponderant opinion of the scholars
a person led in prayer is required to
recite Al-Faatihah as the Prophet said to
his companions : “I t seems that you are
reciting the Quran while being led by an
Imaam? They replied: “Yes.” Thereupon, the
Prophet said: “Do not do so except Al-
Faatihah as there is no prayer [the prayer of
a person is not accepted] for whoever does
not recite it. ” [Ahmad and Abu Daawood].

Nonetheless, if a person does not recite Al-
Faatihah acting according to the view of the
majority of the scholars then his
prayer is correct and he is not obliged to
make up one Rak'ah if he misses the
recitation of Al-Faatihah by the Imaam.
Similarly, the person led in prayer who is
not able to recite Al-Faatihah or if he recites
it, he misses the Rukoo' (bowing down) with
the Imaam, then he should bow down with
the Imaam and count it as one Rak'ah and he
is not required to do anything else [his
Rak'ah is correct and acceptable and he does
not have to make it up].

Allah Knows best.
