Validity of salaah

Question ID: 26789

Assalam o alaikum,
Respected Mufti Sahab, help is needed to sortt out the problem. Please see to it. I want to know that if only two people are going to pray with Jamat and one of them is making Imamat but the other person does not know how to say Ikamat (takbir) so in this situation what would be done to hold the Jamat or should the namaz be said individually?

Once two people have done this and the Ikamat (takbir) was said by the person who became Imam himself. Was the Namaz valid or both of them have to repeat the Salaah?

Please suggest.

Jazzak Allah Khair !

What was done is correct. Both the Imaam and the follower's Salaat is valid. The Imaam was correct in calling the Iqamat and then leading the Salaat.
