Joining the imam during the additional takbeers

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
If I join the imam in the Eid prayer after he has started the takbeers after takbeerat al-ihram (the takbeer with which he starts the prayer), should I say the takbeers that I missed after the imam has said takbeer?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: What is the ruling if I catch up with the imam when he is praying the Eid prayer, and he has said the additional takbeers? Should I make up the takbeers I missed or what should I do? 

He replied: 

If you join the imam during the takbeers, then you should say takbeerat al-ihraam first (the takbeer to start the prayer) and then follow the imam in the remaining takbeers, and you do not have to make up what you missed. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
