Q: I have heard one is able to join prayer like zuhr and asr when need be. I am a student and I can never get any work done at home so I go to the library. Only the time between the two namazes are like three hours. Is it ok for me to join the two in this case because that gives me so much more time to sit there and get my work done?
A: No. The hadeeth says that this is a major sin.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
