What is the ruling on a person

Q 2: Some people arrived late for Salat-ul-‘Eid (the Festival Prayer) and performed the Salah (Prayer) while the Imam (the one who leads congregational Prayer) was delivering the Khutbah (sermon). Is this permissible or not?

A: It is better for late-comers to listen to the Khutbah first and then perform Salat-ul-‘Eid, so as to combine the benefits of the two virtuous deeds. They should also be advised to come early so they will not miss Salat-ul-‘Eid in congregation with the Imam. (Part No. 8; Page No. 308) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and his Companions.
