Missing one’s Salaah due to an examination

Q: We are university students in Canada who have final exams coming up. Some of which are from 2pm to 5pm. However, Asr Mithl to Maghrib is from 2:10 to 4:30. How should we pray our Asr Salah assuming we cannot pray during the exam?


A: The obligation of namaaz does not fall away on account of your examination. You need to ensure that you perform your namaaz on time.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
