Assalamualikum brother. Please advise when is the right waqt (time) to perform Asar salaah?? I have found different opinions. Please help.
Wa alaykum salam.
There are two main opinions with regard to the ending time of the Zuhur prayer and beginning of Asar prayer. The first opinion is when the shadow of an object is similar to its length (determined by the sun), and the second opinion is when the shadow of an object is twice its length.
The first opinion is the view of the majority of the scholars while the second opinion is the opinion of Imam Abu Hanifah.
There are hadiths that could prove both opinions are valid
Allah knows best.
Shaykh Mohammed Shakeeb.
