DELAY IN SALAAH FORBIDDEN

(Hadrat) Ali Murtaza (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) told him, “There are three things, Ali, which you must not postpone:

1. Performing Salaah when its time comes

2. funeral, and

3. The marriage of an unmarried woman when there is available one of a suitable class for her.” [Tirmizi, Ma’rif -ul- Hadis]

IF A SALAAH IS MISSED OWING TO SLEEP OR FORGETFULNESS

Hadrat Anas (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said: “If anyone forgets prescribed Salaah or oversleeps, expiation is made by observing it when he remembers it.” [Bukhari, Muslim, Marif -ul- Hadis]

CARELESSNESS IN SALAAH’s

Hadrat Abu Zar Ghifari (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) asked him, “How will you act when you are under rulers who make Salaah a dead thing, or delay it beyond its proper time. I asked what he commanded me to do so he replied, “Observe the Salaah at its proper time and if you can perform it along with them do so, for it will be a supererogatory Salaah for you. [Muslim, Ma’rif -ul- Hadis]

WAITING FOR THE NEXT SALAAH

Some people were once waiting for lsha Salaah after they had performed the sunset (Maghrib) Salaah. The Messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) came there walking so fast that he was panting. He said, “O man! Rejoice, for your Lord opened a window of the heavens and presented you to His angels saying with pride My servants have performed one Salaah and are waiting for the next.” [Ibn Majah]
