When can i pray magrib salah?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org


I want to know the actual end time of Magrib salah.I belong to Hyderabad where the sunset is at 6:54PM and Ishan starts at 8:05PM.Can I offer Magrib salah before 8:05PM? Will my salah be accepeted if I offer just before 8:05PM?

Hoping you to reply as soon as possible.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle Salah must not be delayed until the last minute.

The time for Magrib Salah commences immediately after sunset and extends until the whiteness [white twilight] remains in the sky. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

If you pray your Magrib Salah before the Esha time sets in, your Magrib will be valid. In the inquired situation, if Esha time sets in at 8:05 pm, Magrib Salah can be performed for example till 8:04pm.

However, it is Makrooh[disliked] to delay Salah unnecessarily until the last moment. [6]

You may follow the perpetual Salah timetable of your area. 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
