Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
If I catch up with the eclipse prayer in the second rukoo’ of the first rak’ah, what should I do?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
The rak’ah will count in Salaat al-Kusoof if you catch up with the first rukoo’. Based on what you say in your question, you caught up with the second rak’ah only, so after the imaam says the salaam, you have to do a whole rak’ah with its two recitations, two rak’ahs and two sujoods.
(See the description of Salaat al-Kusoof, Question#6111).
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.
