Asr salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I live in a city where my local masjid (close to my home i.e. 2-3 minutes drive) offers Asr salah according to Shafi’i time and another masjid located at 8 minutes drive from my home offers Asr salah according to Hanafi time. I am a Hanafi and under such circumstances am I allowed to offer Asr salah at my local masjid or I must go and offer Asr salah at a masjid that prays according to Hanafi time? Also what is the ruling if a Hanafi person leads Asr salah at my local Masjid that offers Asr salah according to Shafi’i time, in such a situation is the salah of the muqtadi valid irrespective of the Madhhab they follow?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 900/896/B=09/1436)

When you are a Hanafi then you should offer Asr in Hanafi mosque, it is better for you. In case of compulsion, if you offer Asr salah in Shafi’i mosque according to their time then too your Asr salah shall be valid.

Allah knows Best!
