Praying Part of a Prayer During its Prescribed Teme
Fatwa No: 379036

Question

suppose, i am returning home from my office in running bus on road while maghrib time running. bus is running and if i get down for prayer, bus may not wait for me and it will be hard for me to catch local bus and then return home as it is long distance. in that case what should i do? should i pray in bus though there is hardly scope for pray standing, or should i pray standing after reaching my town even if i can manage to pray only one rakah before isha time starts? do i get the salah of maghrib in time?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Dear questioner: We advise you to fear Allah and be mindful of Him, and to refrain from asking too many hypothetical questions.

As for your question, since you write to us in Arabic sometimes, then please refer to the following Fataawa on the same subject on our Arabic page: 369760, 244363, 315247, 236620, 46043.

If on prays one Rak’ah of the Maghrib prayer before the time of the ‘Ishaa’ prayer begins, then he is considered to have prayed the Maghrib prayer on time. Please refer to Fatwa 283207 on the ruling of the one who prays part of the prayer during its time and part after its prescribed time ends.

Allah knows best.
