Is it necessary for the Muqtadi who joins congregational Salah late, to fold his hands or not?

Question 1: What do Islamic scholars say about the following issue? Is it necessary for the Muqtadi who reaches for Salah when the Imam is in Ruku’ or Sajdah or Qa’dah, to fold hands in the Qiyam after saying Takbeer-e-Tahrimah in order to join the Imam or he should immediately perform the act which the Imam is performing such as Ruku’ or Sujood or Qa’dah, etc.? Will he recite Sana or not in this case?

(Questioner: Shahnawaz from Chiniot)

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّ حِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ   ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: In the above-mentioned case if the Imam is in Ruku’ or first Sajdah and the Muqtadi is sure that he can join the Imam in Ruku’ or Sajdah after reciting Sana, then he can recite Sana folding his hands after Takbeer-e-Tahrimah and then join the Imam in Ruku’ or Sajdah so that he gets the excellence of reciting Sana as well as can also join the Imam in Ruku’ or Sujood. If he is sure that he cannot join the Imam in Ruku’ or Sajdah after reciting Sana, then he should say Takbeer-e-Tahrimah by standing straight and then without folding hands immediately saying second Takbeer he should join the Imam in Ruku or Sajdah because attaining the excellence of Jama’at with first Takbeer by joining the Imam in Ruku’ is better than reciting Sana. Similarly, joining the Imam in both Sajdahs is much better than reciting Sana. However, if the Imam is in second Sajdah or Qa’dah, then the Muqtadi should not fold hands after Takbeer-e-Tahrimah, but rather should join the Imam in the second Sajdah or Qa’dah without reciting Sana so that he can attain the excellence of having more time with the Imam.

Warning

Saying Takbeer-e-Tahrimah some people try to join the Imam hastily. If someone bows down while saying Takbeer-e-Tahrimah to such an extent that when he stretches his hands they reach his knees, in this case, the Salah will not begin at all because it is Fard to say Takbeer-e-Tahrimah in the state of Qiyam. So in this case, the Salah will have to be repeated.
