Waiting for the Prayer
Question:

In the masjid some of the brothers come a few minutes before the iqaamah and then stand and wait for the prayer to begin, and they do not perform the tahiyyat ul-masjid, so what is the ruling regarding this?
Answer:

If the time period is short such that it is not sufficient to pray tahiyyat ul-masjid, then there is nothing wrong in what they do. If they do not know when the imaam will arrive, then it is better to pray tahiyyat ul-masjid. So if the imaam comes and the prayer is established and you are in the first rak’ah then cut it, and if you are in the second rak’ah then complete it quickly.
