Performing Dhuhr Salah behind someone performing Asr Salah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by IslamicPortal.co.uk

I am a Ḥanafī, and I prayed behind a congregation at university with the intention of Dhuhr Ṣalāh. Later, I realised they were performing ʿAṣr Ṣalāh. Do I have to repeat the Ṣalāh?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم


Yes, you have to repeat the Ṣalāh because the Imam’s Ṣalāh must be the same for your obligation to be fulfilled.

قال القدوري في مختصره (ص ٣٠): ولا يصلي المفترض خلف المتنفل، ولا من يصلي فرضا خلف من يصلي فرضا آخر، ويصلي المتنفل خلف المفترض، انتهى. وقال العيني في البناية (٢/٣٦٤): ولا يصلي من يريد صلاة فرض مثلا صلاة الظهر خلف من يصلي فرضا آخر نحو من يصلي عصرا أو عشاء، انتهى۔
