said: "Verily the leader ('Imãm) was put in place in order
to be followed, so when he makes takbeer, then, make takbeer; when
he bows, then, bow; when he says sami`a 'allãhu liman hamidahu
then, say: Rabbanã wa lakal-hamdu(96);
when he prostrates, then, prostrate; and if he prays sitting down,
then, pray, sitting down, altogether.
(96) The wording as reported
