Latecomer following another latecomer in prayer

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Al salam alykom..
if i pray (ma'mom) and the immam finished the salaht.. but I didn't so I stood to complete my salaht .. then a person came to pray with me as a ma'mom ? Is my immamah correct?
wa jazak allah kyran.

Praise be to Allah.

If a person joins you wanting to pray with you, and you make the intention of leading him in prayer, this is OK.

The author of the book Nihaayat al-Zayn fi Irshaad al-Mubtadieen (p. 127) said: If the imaam says salaam then one latecomer decides to follow another latecomer in prayer, this is OK.

And Allah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
