Narrated: Hittan bin Abdullah
"Abu Musa led us in prayer and when he was sitting, a man from among the people entered and said: 'Prayer is based on righteousness and is always mentioned alongside Zakah (in the Quran).' When Abu Musa had said the Salam, he turned to the people and said: 'Which of you spoke these words?' The people kept quiet. Then he said: 'O Hittan, perhaps you said it?' He said: 'No, but I was afraid that you would rebuke me for it.' He said: 'The Messenger of Allah (saw) taught us our prayer and Sunnah prayers, and he said: The Imam is appointed to be followed, so when he says the Takbir, say the Takbir, when he says "Not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray," [1:7] say Ameen, and Allah will respond to you; when he goes from bowing and rises up and says, 'Sami Allahu liman hamidah (Allah hears those who praise Him), say 'Rabbana lakal-hamd (Our Lord, to You be praise),' and Allah will hear you; when he prostrates, prostrate, and when he sits up, sit up. The Imam should prostrate before you do and sit up before you do.' The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: 'This makes up for that.'"* (Sahih) *Because the Imam bowed or prostrated before you, so you missed a moment of bowing or prostrating, but if you rise up after him, it will make up for that.
