Q: Please can you advise if it is permissible for a Hanafi to read the Asr namaz alone when the time for Asr (shaafi’ee) has set in. The reason is that this person only reaches home 5-10 minutes before Maghrib due to his work and car pool commitments and does not want to miss his Asr namaaz.
A: Perform the namaaz in the right time.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
