Book Name:Musafir ki Namaz

traveller or a resident so that his act of following the Imām in

alāĥ can be valid. It does not matter whether the follower knows it at the time of the commencement of alāĥ or afterwards. Therefore, the Imām should announce that he is a traveller before he starts leading the alāĥ. If he did not make the announcement at the beginning of alāĥ, he should do afterwards in these words: ‘I am a traveller. All resident Islamic brothers should complete their alāĥ [i.e. offer complete four Rak’āt]. (Durr-e-Mukhtār, vol. 2, pp. 735)

If he has already announced at the beginning, even then he should announce that he is a traveller after the alāĥ so that those who were not present at the beginning of alāĥ will also come to know about it. If it is obvious that the Imām is a traveller then post-alāĥ announcement is only Mustaab.

 (Baĥār-e-Sharī’at, vol. 1, pp. 749)

Resident follower and remaining two Rak’āt

When completing their remaining alāĥ after the Imām who is a traveller has offered the Salām of shortened alāĥ, the followers should stand silent in the third and fourth Rak’āt of Far for as long as it normally takes to recite Sūraĥ Al-Fātiaĥ instead of reciting it. (Durr-e-Mukhtār, vol. 2, pp. 735; Derived from: Baĥār-e-Sharī’at, part 1, pp. 748)
