How should a masbooq complete maghrib salaah if he joined in the last rakaat

Q: If I attended last rakat of maghrib salat or tashahud of second rakat then how should I pray the last two rakats and when to pray thana.

A: When the imam makes salaam at the end of the salaah, you should stand up and offer the two rakaats which you missed in the following manner: in the first rakaat read the thana, Surah Faatihah and another surah. Then make ruku and sajdah and then sit down for the first qa`dah. Thereafter, stand up to offer the second rakaat and recite Surah Faatihah and another surah in it as well. After this second rakaat sit in qa`dah and complete the salaah.

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