As-Salaam alaikum,
 We traditionally say ameen or amin, when the last ayat/verse of Surat al-Fatiha is recited [Nor the path of those who go astray] during the canonical prayer, or as part of other prayers or invocations when one person make a Du'a (supplication) on behalf of and in the presence of others, it is likewise customary for the congregation to say ameen.
 As noted by Imam Sahl Ibn Abdullah al-Tustari, may Allah be Merciful to him, in his Tafsir al-Tustari, Muhammad Ibn Sawwar related from Ibn Uyayana from 'Amr Ibn Dinar on the authority of Jabir Ibn Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, who related that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

    "Keep to the straight path [though] you will not be able to
     encompass [all good actions]. Know that the best of your
    actions is prayer, and [indeed] only a believer observes
    ablution carefully. Whenever the Imam says 'Nor [the path]
    of those who go astray [1:7],' you should say Ameen, for Allah
    is pleased with the one who says it, and He accepts his prayer
   and responds to his supplication."

In another wording, on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, amy Allah be pleased with him, Al-Zuhri related from Ibn al-Musayyab that the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--

         "When the Imam says, Nor [the path] of those who go astray,
          say Ameen, for truly the angels say Ameen, and the one
         whose pronouncement of Ameen is simultaneous with that of
         the angels will be forgiven for all his previous sins."
