    Title: Performing Namaz Asr in Haram Mecca or Medina

    Question: Alhamdulillah, Allah has given me opportunity to perform Hajj and Ziyarah last year (2010). My question is related to Asr salah. Is it right to perform salah behind Haram Imam at the time of Asr because this salah is performed at first time according to their maslak as other salah. I have heard according to Hanafi maslak that time is not the actual time for Asr salah. Please guide me on this misconception.

    (Fatwa: 1631/1631/M=1432) It is alright to offer Asr salah in Haram Sharif behind the Imam of Haram. According to one saying of Imam Abu Hanifa (رحمة الله عليه) it is lawful to offer Asr salah before two mithl.
