Why Do We Pray Asr Salah Little Later?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullah

I live in New Jersey, USA. We perform asr salah 1 hour later than the time given in Islamic finder. For example, if  the time for asr is at 2:20 pm in Islamic finder, we pray at 3:20. Can you please explain the reasoning behind this difference?

Walaikumassalam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

الجواب و باللہ التوفیق

In general, the timings displayed in Islamic Finder for salatul-asr are not according to the Hanafi maslak, instaed according to the Shaf‘ai or other masalik. Since the time of salah does not start at that time according to the Hanafi maslak, therefore, salah is performed little later than the timing displayed there.
