Delaying maghrib for a few minutes

 

 

 

Question:

Assalamualaikum

Is it a sin to delay maghrib past the first few minutes of its time if you are busy in some other task and want to finish that first?

Answer:

Wa alaykum as salam

It is not sinful to delay maghrib until a few minutes after sunset, although it is better not to do so.

والله اعلم

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
