Continuing with an optional prayer after the iqaamah of the obligatory prayer has been given
Question:

Is it permissible that I stop the optional prayer and I join the takbeerat ul ihraam (the saying of Allaahu akbar to start the prayer) with the imaam or do I complete the optional prayer?
Answer:

Yes, if the iqaamah of the obligatory prayer has been given, then stop the optional prayer that you were performing so that you catch the takbeerat ul ihraam with the imaam according to what is established from the statement of the Prophet sal Allaahu alaiyhi wa sallam:

If the iqaamah for the prayer is given then there is no prayer except for the obligatory one.

(Ahmad 2/33, Muslim 1/493, and others)

And with Allaah is the tawfeeq. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his Companions.
