Is it good to offer asr salat behind shafee imam when its not time to offer asr in hanafi? Can a hanafi offer asr salat according to shafee time?

Answer

(Fatwa: 376/276/L=1432)

A Hanafi follower should offer Asr salah after mislain (when the shadow of an object is double of its size) according to the Hanafi maslak. It is not right to offer Asr salah behind a Shafi’i Imam at Misl Awwal (when the shadow of an object is equal to its size).
