Individual prayer simultaneous with congregational one

Q: What is your rule regarding a person or people who come to a masjid to offer the prayers individually while prayer is being held in congregation?

A: If this act is seen as something which weakens the congregational prayer or leads to disrespect towards its imam or is insulting to him who is considered just by the people, it will not be permissible.
