Question: Assalam aleykum,

Should the Imam say “Amin” loudly after finishing the recitation of the Fatiha during the first two cycles of Maghreb, Isha and Fajr?

Answer:Wa alaykum salam

I pray you are well and enjoying Allah’s Countless Blessings.

The Imam, after reciting Surah al-Fatihah aloud in the first and second units of prayer, does not repeat the recitation of Surah al-Fatihah, neither audibly nor silently. The Imam pauses silently allowing for the followers (ma’mum) to complete their recitation of Surah al-Fatihah. The followers should whisper while reciting, causing themselves to hear while not disturbing others.

And Allah Knows best

Wassalam
