Performing Asr Salaah in Shafi’ee time

Q: Please advise if we can perform Asr Salaah in Shafi’ee time . This is done to accommodate staff that have transport problems and will not be able to make jamaat if Asr salaah is performed during hanafi time. Please advise.


A: If they are Shaafis, then they can perform their Asr salaah in the Shaafi time. If they are Hanafis, then they should perform the Asr salaah in the Hanafi time.

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