The Prohibited Times For Praying


There are few hours during the day when Performing Salah is prohibited or disapproved. They are as follows:

1. After Fajr until the sun rises completely 

It is prohibited to pray at the time when sun is rising or coming up from the horizon until the sun rises completely. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said : " There is no prayer after the morning prayer until the sun rises ( Bukhari and Muslim).

2. When the sun is at the centre of the sky

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: " Do not pray when the sun is rising or when it's setting for verily the shaytan stands in front of the sun and he allows the sun to rise from its horns to glorify him self.  (Sahih Muslim ,1925).

Also one of the reasons is that it may lead others to believe that we are worshipping the sun.

3. After Asr until sunset 

It is prohibited to pray after Asr Salah until the sun set ( until the sun sets completely).

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: " When the lower part of the sun is set then delay praying until it is fully set." (Bukhari).
