Abandoning offering the `Isha''

Q: I am a secondary school student who offers Fajr (dawn) Prayer after sunrise because I stay up until midnight studying. What is the ruling in this regard?

A: You have to perform Salah (prayer) in its due time mentioned in the Qur'an (Part No. 6; Page No. 154) and pointed out by the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). You are not permitted to delay Fajr (dawn) prayer until sunrise. You have to wake up in its due time by using an alarm clock or by asking other people to wake you up after the Adhan (call to prayer) in order to perform it in congregation in the Masjid (mosque). You do not have to stay up all night studying.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
