Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is it better for workers to hasten to pray when they hear the adhaan, or to wait until they have finished some tasks? What is the ruling on offering naafil prayers after praying, apart from the regular Sunnah prayers?.
(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.
It is better for all Muslims to hasten to pray when they hear the adhaan, because the muezzin says, “Hayya ‘ala al-salaah (Come to prayer).” Hesitating will lead to missing the prayer.
With regard to a worker offering naafil prayers after the prayer, apart from the regular Sunnah prayers, this is not permissible, because his time belongs to someone else, according to the work contract. With regard to the regular Sunnah prayers, there is nothing wrong with him offering them, because bosses and supervisors customarily allow that.
And Allaah is the Source of strength.
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.
