Reading Surah Faatihah behind an Imam

Q: If we read salaah behind an imam and the imam reads Surah Al Faatihah must we read it as well or keep silent?

A: If you are a Shaafi’ee then you will read Surah Faatihah after the Imam has completed his Surah Faatihah. If you are a Hanafi then you will not read Surah Faatihah.
