The Details of the Question
While performing salah, does making salutations before the imam invalidate the salah?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

To sit so long as to read At-tahiyyatu means that you have performed the fard of the salah. For this reason, the salah of the person who makes salutations and leaves the salah after reading At-tahiyyatu without waiting for the imam to make salutations is abominably acceptable. For, it is wajib to follow the imam regarding the issue.

In other words, his/her salah is all right as he/she carries out the fard, but he/she commits a makruh because he/she makes salutations without waiting for the imam. And such a practice is not appropriate.
