Someone happens to combine Maghrib Prayer with `Isha' Prayer at the Masjid (mosque) on a rainy night. After `Isha' is finished, there comes a latecomer who offers Maghrib. Is it permissible for that latecomer to pray `Isha' first with that man
then pray Maghrib, or does he have to offer Maghrib first and then join him?If the latecomer happens to enter the Masjid after the other person has finished praying Maghrib but has not yet started praying `Isha', should he wait until the other person has offered Maghrib then they both join together for `Isha'?
The latecomer has to offer Maghrib first, and once he finishes it, he may join the other person who offers `Isha'. If the latecomer happens to enter the Masjid after the other person has finished (Part No. 8; Page No. 149) praying Maghrib, it is permissible for the one who has finished Maghrib to wait for him until he finishes Maghrib.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
