    Title: Asr salah timings in UAE

    Question: I am in UAE. Here I could not find a single mosque in my area, where Asr salah is being offered as per Hanafi timings. Currently the time of Asr azan here is about 4 o' clock and I leave office usually after 4:15 or after that (after jamah timings in masjid). Now after coming from office, I usually wait till around 5:15 (to get near Hanafi timings) and then offer salah. On Friday and Saturday as it is holiday, I try to offer with jamah (around 4 o' clock). What timings should I offer my Asr salah?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 749/586/D=1434) You should offer Asr salah after two mithl so that no doubt remains. If you offer Asr salah with jamah on Friday and Saturday on one mithl then it is better to repeat it on two mithl alone so that you could get the reward of jamah as well and your Asr salah is valid without any doubt. قال فى اعلاء السنن والاولى ما قلنا انه يصلى مع الامام ثم يعيدها ولا تكره اعادة العصر فى هذه الصورة لان الاولى لم تصح عند الامام فيكون الفرض فى الثانية لم اره صريحا ولكنه مقتضى القواعد .
