Solution for Makmum Who Late Coming

Islamic Law: Hi all readers! Do you know who is makmum that late coming for jamaah prayer? Such a makmum is called “Makmum Masbuq (the late coming)”. Yup! I’m sure you already know, maybe even you or we have experienced such conditions. Of course, if we experience such conditions, there are many rak’ats left behind. Maybe the first rak’at, the second rak’at, and so on. If we experience such conditions, what should we do?

As always, before I answer the question above, I will quote a hadith that is specifically related to our discussion. The hadith that I mean is as follows;

عَنْ عَلِيٍّ بْنِ أَبِيْ طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ ؛ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ؛ إِذَا أَتَى أَحَدُكُمْ الصَّلَاةَ وَالْإِمَامُ عَلَى حَالٍ فَلْيَصْنَعْ كَمَا يَصْنَعُ اْلِإمَامُ . رَوَاهُ التِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Abi bin Abi Talib radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “If one of you comes to pray while imam is in a condition (one of the conditions in prayer), then let him do movement like what imam does.” This hadith is narrated by at-Tirmidhi.


Same Things and Different Things between Imam and Makmum

The Best Position for One Makmum in Jamaah Prayer

There are some important things related to the hadith above that we need to know;

  1. The hadith explains, that makmum prayer that late coming is valid.
  2. The hadith explains what must be done by Makmum who is late coming to jamaah prayer. All he has to do is like imam did. If imam is bowing, he must bow. If imam is prostrating, then he must bow down. If imam is sitting in the tasyahud, then he must sit tasyahud.
  3. Makmum who late coming had to perfect the rakaat prayer that had been missed.
