Read new Article:: Joining two prayers in urdu


Asalam-o-alakum to all people, I am writing this blog to share sahih hadiths(from 6 authenticated books of ahl-sunnat jamat) related to joining of prayers, which is much clear now after many scholars from Sunni sect admited that joining of prayers are allowed in islam. Whereas Shia scholars already admit it and practice it as well.

The purpose is to share the knowledge so that one can offer prayer in time and join them without worrying about it. It’s allowed for the benefit/ease of people and this
is allowed by our beloved prophet(PBUH).


Sahih al-Bukhari:

My first reference is from Sahih al-Bukhari, although not much details but an evidence that even Imam bukhari reported it.

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:
The Prophet (PBUH) prayed seven rak`at together and eight rak`at together.

Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 562
In-book reference : Book 9, Hadith 39

Sahih Muslim:

Second and third reference is from Sahih Muslim, Imam Muslim wrote the chapter(Joining two prayers when not traveling) on it and with full details, about 6-7 sahih hadiths
exist in this chapter. I am listing here only two.

Chapter: Joining two prayers when not traveling

‘Abdullah b. Shaqiq reported:
Ibn ‘Abbas one day addressed us in the afternoon (after the afternoon prayer) till the sun disappeared and the stars appeared, and the people began to say: Prayer, prayer. A person from Banu Tamim came there. He neither slackened nor turned away, but (continued crying): Prayer, prayer. Ibn ‘Abbas said: May you be deprived of your mother, do you teach me Sunnah? And then he said: I saw the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) combining the noon and afternoon prayers and the sunset and ‘Isha’ prayers. ‘Abdullah b. Shaqiq said: Some doubt was created in my mind about it. So I came to Abu Huraira and asked him (about it) and he testified his assertion.

Now some References of Ulema.

1 thought on “Joining two prayers”

  1. AsSalaamu ‘Alaikum

    It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas said:
    “I prayed with the Prophet (ﷺ) in Al-Madinah, eight together and seven together. He delayed Zuhr and brought ‘Asr forward, and he delayed Maghrib and brought ‘Isha’ forward.”
    Grade: Sahih (Darussalam)

    So it’s about delaying zhuhr until its end time and doing asr at its beginning time. Same for Maghrib and ‘Ishaa, not a normal combing like when travelling.
