Praying Asr before time to attend a lecture

Fatwaa ID: 2076

Assalamu alaikum, my friend asked that it is allowed to pray asr with duhr so that I don’t miss asr due to lecture?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala bless you in your studies.

You cannot join ‘Asr with Dhuhr for the said reason. The ‘Asr Salaah in question will be invalid. It will have to be performed once the time comes in. Each salaah must be performed at its respective time even if it means that you will have to miss your lecture. Classes attended while displeasing Allaah Ta’aala will be void of khayr and barakah. Excuse yourself from class for a few minutes and perform your salaah. You may also request a classmate to record the few minutes you will be out.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
