Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
If the sun gets eclipsed at the time of Salaat al-‘Asr, what should we do?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
If the sun is eclipsed after the Adhaan for ‘Asr, you should pray the obligatory prayer first (i.e., ‘Asr), then pray Salaat al-Kusoof. If the sun is eclipsed before the Adhaan for ‘Asr, then pray Salaat al-Kusoof and when it is finished, give the Adhaan for ‘Asr and pray the fard (obligatory) prayer. It does not matter if the Adhaan is given later than the beginning of the time for ‘Asr.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
