Missed magrib reached isha congregation.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
First of all i would like to appericiate efforts of all your team and thanks all of you that you have made it possible for all of us to remove our misconception regarding ISLAM whether they are small or bigger. Inshallah Allah will give return of this, which we can`t imagine. May Allah Shower his blessing and mercy upon all of us.
I want to ask you regarding salah, suppose someone is regular with his salah and one day he missed maghrib (for example) and he couldn`t pray till Isha. When he reached masjid Isah salah was going on, now this man will join the Jama`t and will finish his Isha salah or he has to finish his Qaza of magrib first and then he has to join Jama`t of Isha and keep in mind that while fisnishing magrib he may miss Jama`t of Isha.
I hope i have putted up the question clearly to you.
Thanks once again.

Missed magrib reached isha congregation
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
Question: ..When he reached masjid Isah salah was going on, now this man will
join the Jama`t and will finish his Isha salah or he has to finish his Qaza of
magrib first and then he has to join Jama`t of Isha and keep in mind that while
fisnishing magrib he may miss Jama`t of Isha.
If for any genuine reason one has perchance missed one (or more) of their obligatory prayers, the absolute majority of the scholars and jurists in Islam are of the opinion that when making up those missed obligatory prayers, one should strive to maintain the sequence or the order of their prayer. Thus if one (Allah forbid) has missed the offering of their obligatory Asr and Magrib prayers and wish to make them up at Isha time, then first they should offer the qada or delayed prayers of Asr, then the Magrib and then the Isha.
Now to your specific question.
If one has perchance missed the offering of their Magrib prayers, and reaches the masjid before the congregation for the Isha prayers has started, then one should first pray their missed Magrib prayers as qada and subsequently join the Isha congregation with the believers.
But if the person reaches the masjid just when the Isha congregation is about to start or has already started, then indeed the person should join the Isha congregation with the believers and then offer the missed Magrib prayers later as qada.
Wabsah relates that the Messenger of Allah (saws) saw a man praying behind the rows by himself and the Prophet (saws) ordered him to repeat his salah.
Related by Bukhari and Muslim.
A prayer offered by a person alone when a prayer congregation is in process is unacceptable to Allah Subahnah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
