Eating Asr and Maghrib
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
One can eat and drink of the halaal things provided by Allah anytime he wishes. There is no such hadiths whereby it states that the Messenger of Allah (saws) did not eat or drink anything between the times of asr and magrib, nor any authentic narration whereby he forbade the believers to do so. Thus eat and drink of the halaal, whenever you wish; except when you are fasting, of course.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother & well-wisher in Islam,
