Musallees waiting for the Imaam

Q: We have only one Imaam in our musjid. Only sometimes he is a few seconds late not regularly. Should the musallees at least wait a few minutes for the Imaam? please advise.


A: Yes, as long as it is manageable for the musallees.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
