Q 9: A person
entered the Masjid (mosque) and found the Imam in the Ruku` (bowing) position. After reciting Takbirat-ul-Ihram (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]" upon starting Prayer) and on bowing like the Imam, the Imam rose from the bowing position. Is this considered a complete Rak`ah for him?
No, it will not be considered a complete Rak`ah as he did not join the Imam in the Ruku` position.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
