Whoever caught the Prayer in the final Tashahhud, has missed the congregational Prayer


Question :
If a worshipper reaches the congregational prayer in the final Tashahhud, is he credited with the reward of prayer in congregation, or not?

Answer :
The congregational prayer is not caught unless a Rak'ah is caught, according to the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him:
Whoever caught a Rak'ah of the prayer has caught the prayer.
"Whoever caught a Rak'ah of the prayer has caught the prayer."
Al-Bukhari no. 580 Muslim no. 607.
But whoever was late due to some valid excuse, such as illness or the like, will have the reward of the congregation, according to the Hadith of Prophet Peace Be Upon Him:
If a man is ill or on a journey, Allah will write for him the reward which he would have had if he had been healthy and resident.
"If a man is ill or on a journey, Allah will write for him the reward which he would have had if he had been healthy and resident."
Al-Bukhari no. 2996 Ahmad 4 :410.
Ibn Baz
