Joining salaahs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. Is our namaz valid if the Imaam combines two namaazes (zuhr-asr or maghrib-isha) as per Hambali maslak?

2. What is the procedure to be followed by a Hanafi follower if the bus driver does not stop for the maghrib prayer because the Hambali people do combine the namaazes later during isha?



1. If the namaaz is read in its time then it is valid, and the one that is not in its original time it will not be valid.

2. Like we have mentioned that every namaaz has to be done in its right time.

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