Next prayer time entering

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by FatwaCentre.org

If you are praying salah and the next salah time enters, is your salah valid.
For example, if asr time begins at 4 :12 and when you finish praying zuhr the time is 4:12 is your zuhr considered valid or invalid, would you have caught up with zuhr salah?


In order to gain maximum reward you should ensure that the salat is completed within the time. However, if it was completed in the next salat time the zuhr salat will be valid [though it will count as a qada]. This will apply to all salats with the exception of fajr salat. If sun rise occurred before you completed your fajr salat you will need to repeat the fajr salat after the sun has completely risen and the disliked prayer time has passed, which is approximately 15 minutes after sunrise.

الدر المختار وحاشية ابن عابدين (رد المحتار) (2/ 62)
ثم الأداء فعل الواجب في وقته وبالتحريمة فقط بالوقت يكون أداء عندنا، وبركعة عند الشافعي

(قوله في وقته)

وما ذكره من أنه بالتحريمة يكون أداء عندنا هو ما جزم به في التحرير وذكر شارحه أنه المشهور عند الحنفية، ثم نقل عن المحيط أن ما في الوقت أداء والباقي قضاء، وذكر ط عن الشارح في شرحه على الملتقى ثلاثة أقوال فراجعه
