A Hanafi Reading Zuhr Salaah after the Shafi time of Zuhr Salaah has expired

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. Please explain the following. For Hanafis. Zuhr Salaah was missed. By the time I came home Shaafi Asr time had started. When and how many rakaahs of Zuhr has to be performed.


A. A Hanafi should follow the rules of the Hanafi school of thought and likewise, a Shafi should follow the rules of the Shafi school of thought. The same applies to them following the respective times of Salaah.

As such, a Hanafi will follow the Hanafi time of Zuhr Salaah, which commences from Zawaal at 12:01 PM and terminates at 04:16 PM as of 29/03/2019. A Shafi will follow the Shafi time of Zuhr Salaah, which commences at 12:01 PM and terminates at 03:24 PM.

In the inquired situation, if the Shafi time of Zuhr Salaah terminated and the Shafi Asr time commenced (3:24 PM), a Hanafi will still perform the full Zuhr Salaah as the Hanafi time of Zuhr Salaah has not yet terminated (04:16 PM).

N.B. The Shafi time of Zuhr Salaah expires before the Hanafi time of Zuhr Salaah expires.

Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
