Time for Asr Prayer

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) If a person (supposedly Hanafi) leads salatul asr, when the hanafi asr time has not started yet (sha'afi time of asr has started), what would be validity of such salat? [Muqtada Husain Detroit, NY]

A.) There are differences of opinion among the Hanafi Fuqaha regarding the terminating time of Dhuhr and commencing time of Asr. Imam Abu Yusuf and Imam Muhammad (two leading students of Imaam Abu Hanifa) hold the same view as Shaaf'ee. Many jurists have preferred this view, therefore, the Salat during Shaaf'ee Asr time will be valid. And Allah Ta„la Knows Best.
