If a Musafir misses two rakaats behind a Muqeem Imaam, he completes as four rakaats as a Masbooq, correct? 




In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




If a Musaafir prays behind a Muqeem Imaam, he should pray 4 Rak’aats, as mentioned below:


و إن اقتدى مسافر بمقيم اتم أربعا

“And if a Musaafir follows a Muqeem, he should complete 4.” (Fataawa Hindiyya, Vol 1, Pg 156)


So, yes, if he (Musafir) is a Masbooq behind a Muqeem Imaam, he should finish off the 4 Rak’aats.



Only Allah knows best.
