Little congregation in the back of the masjid

Fatwaa ID: 958

Salam wwb

1) If one misses isha salah when he reached the mosque and taraweeh has began
While taraweeh is going on, can one start a little jamat of Isha at the back

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

No. That is outright disrespectful to the imaam and the congregation in session. You will be causing interruptions and difficulties. You should perform your fardh individually and then join the congregation. This is aside from the fact that the Hanafiyyah have regarded any congregation in the masjid after the official congregation to be prohibitively disliked.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
