Combining two obligatory Salahs while traveling or because of forgetfulness
Q 3: It rarely happens that I
combine two obligatory Salahs (Prayers) while traveling
or because I have forgotten. How can I avoid this? I was once told that it is permissible to combine two Salahs at the time of either one of them.
Each Salah must be offered at its respective time. However, it is permissible while traveling to combine Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer with `Asr (Afternoon) Prayer at the time of either of them or Maghrib (Sunset) Prayer with `Isha' (Night) Prayer at the time of either of them. The same applies to the case of an illness which might cause difficulty when Salahs are not combined.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
