إذا أقيمت الصلاة فلا تأتوها وأنتم تسعون وأتوها وأنتم تمشون وعليكم السكينة فما أدركتم فصلوا وما فاتكم فأتموا» .
(صحيح)  [حم ق 4] عن أبي هريرة. صحيح أبي داود 580 وانظروا [إذا ثوب] رقم 456)

It is narrated from the words of Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“When you hear the Iqama, proceed to offer the prayer with calmness and solemnity and do not make haste and whatever portion of the prayer you get (along with the Imam) offer it, and complete afterwards whatever you missed [1]. 

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 2/238, al-Bukhari 636, Muslim 602, Abu Dawud 572, at-Tirmidhi 327, al-Nasai 2/114, Ibn Majah 775.

Grade: صحيح

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Saheeh al-jami ‘as-sagyir 369.


[1] That is, perform the rak’ats you missed immediately after completing the collective prayer.
