Prayer Timings

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

I would like to know the latest time you can read dhuhr till, so for example if asr is at 4:30pm, what time can you read dhuhr till? From what I have heard you can read dhuhr one hour before the jamat time, but I just wanted to know the latest time you can read dhuhr. I wanted to know this due to work problems.

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful & Compassionate

You can pray Zuhr until Asr time enters, in terms of validity. However, it would be blameworthy to delay it so much that you won’t have the time to pray the post-Zuhr sunna within Zuhr time.

It is a highly emphasized sunna for men to pray in congregation, when they are able to. Please go to www.SunniPath.com, and search for prayer congregation, for details.

Otherwise, it is generally recommended to perform one’s prayers at the beginning of the time, as this is the most emphatic fulfilment of one’s duty as servants of Allah and most expressive of one’s love and thankfulness.

Faraz Rabbani.
