    Title: Imam facing Masbooq after Asr?

    Question: After Asr salah, if there are masbooq (people who are making up their missed rakah) behind the imam, should the imam turn to the side or turn opposite, so he is facing the masbooq?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 350/350/M=04/1435) If there is masbooq (one who is completing remaining rak’at after imam) is just opposite to the imam facing him then the imam should not sit face to face to him rather he should sit turning his face right or left.
