Praying Dhuhr until Asr Thani

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

As salamu alaykum,

If the time for Asr is at 16:10 o’clock and the time for Asr Thaani is 16:52 o’clock. And one hasyet not prayed the Dhuhr of that day when the time is 16:25 o’clock.

Should he pray the Dhuhr as ‘Adaa or as Qadhaa ? Or does it not matter to specify this and making intention for the current day Dhuhr is enough ? The pre and after sunnah should also be performed ?

I read on website, that if one has not prayed the Dhuhr till the begin-time of Asr, he can pray the Dhuhr upto the time of Asr Thaani, and the Asr he will pray at Asr Thaani time. Is this the fatwa position of the Hanafi madhab ?

Was salaam.


Wa’alaykum as Salām wa raḥmatullāhi wa barakātuhu,

The Dhuhr will still be adā, until the entering of ‘Aṣr thāni (when the shadow of each thing is twice the size it was at the time of zawwāl). Making intention for the present day Dhuhr is enough.
