Qiraat behind the imam?

Question

During Siri Salah (where Imam leads silently, Duhar and Asar) what the Muktadi (praying behind Imam) has to recite silently after Surah Fatiha? Has he to wait till Imam recites Zami Surah (Surah following Surah Fatiha) or the Muktadi has to silently recite any Surah following Surah Fatiha?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

According to the Hanafi Mazhab (School of thought) a muqtadi does not recite behind the Imam regardless of the salah being sirri  (inaudible) or jehri (audible). The recitation of the Imam will suffice for the muqtadi.
