Correcting the Imaam

Q: In what instances are the followers allowed to correct an Imam and when should they not correct the Imam?

A: If the Imaam stands up to perform an extra rakaat or the Imaam performs less rakaats, the muqtadis should recite tasbeeh in order to inform him of his mistake.

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