Praying behind the Traveller
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: What should the resident do if he prays behind the traveller?

Response: If the resident prays behind the traveller [leading the prayer] - who has shortened his prayer, then the resident's prayer behind him is correct; So when the [traveller] imaam completes the prayer, then the resident must stand and complete the remaining two rak'ahs of the prayer.
