Hanbali Madhhab: Not Allowed to Recite Fatiha Behind Imam in Loud Prayers

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
والعاقبة للمتقين
According to the Hanbali madhhab, it is not allowed for the ma’mum (one who is praying behind an imam) to recite anything from the Qur’an, including Surat al-Fatiha, when the imam is reciting aloud:
“The ma’mum, on hearing the recitation of the imam, must not recite al-Hamd or any other (sura) for (Allah) Most High says: ‘When the Qur’an is recited then listen to it and be silent that you may be given mercy’ (7:204), and what was narrated by Abu Huraira may Allah be pleased with him from the Prophet (sall Allahu alayhi wasallam): ‘Why am I being contended with in the Qur’an?’. So the people ceased reciting in that which the Prophet (sall Allahu alayhi wasallam) recited in aloud. It is mustahhab to recite during the pauses of the imam and in what he does not recite in aloud. But if he does not do that his Salat is still complete because ‘whoever has an imam, the recitation of the imam is for him a recitation.’” (Mukhtasar al-Khiraqi p.23):
