Making up for the `Eid Prayers

Q 2: What is the ruling on a person who catches the Tashahhud (a recitation in the sitting position in the second unit of Prayer) in Salat-ul-`Eid (the Festival Prayer) or Salat-ul-Istisqa' (Prayer for rain), should he perform the two Rak`ah and do as the Imam did or what should he do?

A: Whoever catches only the Tashahhud of Salat-ul-`Eid or Salat-ul-Istisqa' should perform two Rak`ahs during which he should do the acts done by the Imam such as Takbir (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]"), recitation, bowing down, and prostration.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
