        What to Say during Tajāfī Position in a Congregational Prayer

        Q: what should a follower who lately joined the congregational prayer say during tajāfī (half-sitting) position?
        Should he keep quiet, say tasbīḥ or say tashahhud with the imam?

        A: He is not required to say anything. However, it is a caution to say tasbih instead of tashahhud, although it is more probable that saying tashahhud is permissible, or rather mustaḥabb.
