Q: I want to ask that I live in Karachi and the asar time in my city starts from 3.27pm and the adhan for prayer is being called off by 4.15pm but I am a student. I have to go to coaching to take my classes and my class starts from 4.15 to 5.00 and there is a 5 minute break but in that 5 minute break there is such a rush of people so I am not able to pray my Asr Salaah and the next class begins from 5 – 5.45 but at 5.45 it is time for Maghrib. Can I pray before adhan is called?
A: It is permissible so long as the Asr Salaah is performed after the time of Asr has entered.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
