Joining the Imam in the last sitting

Question:

If a person joins the congregation while the imam is in the last sitting, what should he read?

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم:

الجواب حامدا و مصليا و مسلما

Answer:

He should recite tashahhud then durood as he normally does in the last sitting. However, if the imam has said salaam, he should stand up after completing tashahhud and finish the remainder of his salah.

والله اعلم

Allah Knows best.
