Delaying one’s Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to know if I missed zuhr salaah and if its time for asr salaah, can I still perform zuhr salaah and then make asr?


A: It is not permissible for one to delay the Salaah until the time of the next Salaah comes in. If one had delayed his Salaah until the time of the next Salaah had entered, he should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for committing this grave sin and make a firm resolve that he will not repeat this in the future. He should make qadha of the Zohar Salaah before performing the Asr Salaah.

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