AL-JAM'U BAINAS SALAATAIN (COMBINATION OF
A worshiper may be allowed to combine two
prayers. This combination may be Taqdeeman, that is in advance,
when the two prayers are offered together in the time of the first prayer,
such as offering Salaatuz Zuhr in its correct time and Salaatul 'Asr before
its correct time.
The combination may also be Ta'akheeran,
that is delayed, when the two prayers are offered in the correct time of
the second prayer, such as offering Salaatul Maghrib and Salaatul 'Ishaa
in the correct time of 'Ishaa.
Salaah may be combined in the following
[Previous] | [Next]
On 'Arafaat and Muzdalifah, two spots of gathering
during the observance of Hajj. Thus a Hajj may offer Zuhr and 'Asr prayers
Taqdeeman in the time of Zuhr at 'Arafaat. One may do that in his tent
at 'Arafaat or at the famous Masjidun Namirah, the Grand Mosque at Arafaat.
On the other hand, one may offer Maghrib and 'Ishaa Ta'akheeran in the
time of 'Ishaa at Muzdalifah.
When a person is on a journey he may combine
the prayers, as mentioned earlier. However, the Jam'u, combination,
must be between Zuhr and 'Asr, or between Maghrib and 'Ishaa. No combination
between 'Asr and Maghrib.
The Jamaa'ah, congregation, or the individual
may combine the prayers if there is a valid reason for it, such as combining
on rainy or snowy days that make it difficult for the Muslims to attend
Jamaa'ah prayer in Al-Masjid. On the same condition, an individual may
combine prayers when he or she is ill.
