السلام علیکم و رحمت اللہ و برکاتہ
I was going through the questions and answers in this site.
I came across question id 190.
I am not convinced with the answer for following reasons:
Islamic finder has both settings for Shafi and Hanafi Maslak timings.
The exact reason why that Masjid/Musallah adds 1 hour to Asr timing is not known, it could be any other reason.
I checked the Asr timing of Trenton for today. The Asr Hanafi timing is not exactly adding 1 hour to other Masalik Asr time.
جزاك الله خير
الجواب وباللہ التوفیق
According to our knowledge, the timings mentioned in Islamic Finder are not according to the Hanafi school of thought and the time of ‘Asr noted there e.g., 2:20 p.m. is of other schools of thought, and according to the احناف Hanafis the time starts later on. Accordingly the salat which is prayed more or less one hour later is not because exactly at that time the salat time entered according to the Hanafi school of thought rather it’s possible that the delay is cautionary so that the time according to the Hanafis should also set in and everyone should be accommodated in salat.
واللہ اعلم بالصواب
