When should one offer zuhr salah?

 

 

 

Question:

Asalamualaikom, 

I follow the Hanafi school of thought. I live in a city where there is no masjid, just a musallah. There is no fixed time when the jamat occurs for any particular salat, but usually they pray jamat right after the time for the athan for that particular salat. My question is specifically regarding the asr salat. That is, most Muslims in my city pray jamat at the earlier non-Hanafi time for asr. Should I join them in jamat for the risk of praying by myself if I pray at the later Hanafi time? Jazakallah khair.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Answer:

Wa Alaikum Salam 

Both opinions have been regarded to be correct by different scholars in the Hanafi Madhab. Therefore you should pray with the congregation and should not pray alone.

والله اعلم

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
