Hanafi performing asr salaah in Shaafi’ee time

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: When we go for umrah, all the umrah busses stop for asr prayer according to shafiee time. We (ladies) strictly follow hanafi time. In winters, due to school, we read our zuhur salah after the shafiee asr azan, as hanafi zuhur salaah time is still there. We also read our asr according to hanafi time i.e. late.

So my question is… the bus stops for asr at shafiee time. If we do not get the jamaat, what should we do? Can we read at shafiee time at such circumstances? 


A: On safar it is permissible for you to perform your asar salaah according to the shaafee time on condition that you also perform your zohar salaah according to the shaafee time. If you perform your zohar and asar salaah in the shaafee asar time, you will be performing two salaahs in one salaah time and this is prohibited in deen.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
