The Imam waiting in Bowing
Question:

If the Imam is in bowing, and he hears some of the worshipers hastening to catch the bowing, is it permissible for him to wait for them, or not?
Answer:

It is better for the Imam in this situation not to be hasty in straightening up ... but in a way that does not cause hardship to those praying with him, so that those whom he hears entering may bow with him and catch the Rakah. And it has been narrated from the Prophet that which proves that this is preferred.
