What should I do if I am late for the congregational prayer and the imam performs sajdah as-sahw?

The Details of the Question

- What should a masbuq (a person who catches up with prayer later) do when the imam performs sajdah as-sahw?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The person who starts to follow the imam afterwards waits for the imam, performs sajdah as-sahw (prostration of forgetfulness) with him; then, he stands up and completes the rak’ahs that he has missed.

If he stands up without following the imam though the imam performs sajdah as-sahw, he performs sajdah as sahw at the end of the prayer.

If the person who forgets the salutation has not done anything that invalidates prayer, he salutes when he remembers it.
