Delaying Asr Until Right Before Maghrib

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Sidi Fadi Qutub Zada

I delayed Asr and was only reminded when the call to Maghrib was announced. I immediately prayed my Asr which was concluded by the time the muezzin had finished his call to the Maghrib prayer – I then prayed my Maghrib. Is my Asr prayer valid?

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Your Asr prayer is valid. However, one should not put off the prayer for fear of falling into sin if missed.

The Prophet of God (Allah bless him and give him peace) was asked, “Which of works is most beloved to Allah?” He said, “The prayer in its proper time.” [Bukhari]

And Allah knows best

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْوَلِيدِ هِشَامُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ قَالَ الْوَلِيدُ بْنُ الْعَيْزَارِ أَخْبَرَنِي قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَمْرٍو الشَّيْبَانِيَّ يَقُولُ حَدَّثَنَا صَاحِبُ هَذِهِ الدَّارِ وَأَشَارَ إِلَى دَارِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَيُّ الْعَمَلِ أَحَبُّ إِلَى اللَّهِ قَالَ الصَّلَاةُ عَلَى وَقْتِهَا قَالَ ثُمَّ أَيٌّ قَالَ ثُمَّ بِرُّ الْوَالِدَيْنِ قَالَ ثُمَّ أَيٌّ قَالَ الْجِهَادُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي بِهِنَّ وَلَوْ اسْتَزَدْتُهُ لَزَادَنِي
