[Q 198] What is the ruling on a Hanafi performing the Asr prayer before the Hanafi time?


In Saudi if they follow the earlier asr time which we don’t normally follow.

Would I just pray the earlier asr or should I wait for the one we normally pray?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


The one who follows the Hanafi fiqh can offer the Asr prayer only after the asr prayer has started according to the hanafi fiqh, so you cannot offer the Asr prayer at that time where the Salah is being prayed earlier.
