Is it permissible for a ma'zoor to combine prayers?

Question:

If a person is considered a ma`zoor according to Shari`ah, is it permissible to pray zuhr and asr salaah together with the same wudhu between the first and second shadow timings? What about Maghrib and Isha between the the red and white shafaq?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Answer:

Combining Zuhr and Asr in the time between first and second shadow (commonly known as the time between the start of shaf'i asar time and hanafi asar time) for a person regarded as ma'zoor by Shari'a is permissible. This is the preferred opinion according to many scholars.

والله اعلم

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
