Combine Two Prayers (Salah) due to Time Constraint: Okay?

Combine Two Prayers (Salah) due to Time Constraint

Question:

Is it permissible to combine two prayers (Maghrib and `Isha’) due to time constraint?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

The European Council for Fatwa and Research considers it permissible to combine the Maghreb and `Isha’ prayers because `Isha’ falls very late at night or because its mark disappears for a period during the summer. Indeed, `Isha’ may only fall due near midnight. The Council also considers it permissible to combine the Zuhr and `Asr prayers in winter, due to the short hours of the day which makes it difficult for people at work to offer each prayer at its time in their workplaces. However, the Council makes clear that people should not resort to such combination when there is no need for it, and they must not make it their habit.
