Question 57: Assalamualaykum dear sheikhs. Is it permissible to combine Friday prayer with asr?

Any imam of the madzhab mentioned any ruling regarding this? Jazakumullahukhairan for your answer.

Answer:  Assalamualaikum Br Falihin Amran

From my research, the Imaams of the four madhabs do not have any sayings on this specific topic. However, later scholars of each madhab have written about it. One of those who wrote in detail about this is Sh Uthaimeen. Essentially, he makes the point that Friday Prayer is a separate Prayer to dhuhr prayer, and hence analogy between them is not correct.

So based on this, it is not permissible to combine the asr Prayer with the Friday Prayer.
