  • Fiqh of combining prayer during rain...

    Volume 2, Page 117: Combining two prayers during rain

    Al-Athram records in his Sunnan that Abu Salamah ibn 'Abdurrahman said: "It is a sunnah to combine the maghrib and 'isha prayers when it is raining." Al-Bukhari records that the Prophet sallallahu alehi wasallam combined the maghrib and 'isha prayers on a rainy night.

    A summary of the opinions of the different schools of fiqh on this point follows:

    The Shaf'i school says that it is allowed for the resident to combine the zuhr and 'asr or the maghrib and 'isha, praying each pair in the time of the earlier salah only, given that it is raining when one begins the earlier prayer and it is still raining by the time one begins the second prayer.

    According to the Maliki school, it is allowed to combine the maghrib and 'isha in the mosque at the time of the maghrib due to rain or expected rain, if there is mud and darkness along the way, or if there is a lot of mud and it prevents the people from wearing their shoes. Nevertheless, he dislikes that the zuhr and 'asr should be combined due to rain.

    According to the Hanbali school, it is only allowed to combine the maghrib and 'isha in the time of the former or the latter due to snow, ice, mud, severe cold, or rain which soaks the clothes. This concession is allowed only for one who prays with a congregation in the mosque and who comes from a distance over which he could be harmed by the rain. However, for one who prays in a congregation in his house or whose path to the mosque is covered or protected, or for one whose house is right next to the mosque, it is not allowed to combine the salah.
    • Which one is strongest?
    • Do we take the Dhahir approach to the hadith and just pray anytime it rains?
      Does it have to be heavy rain? or can be light rain as well?
      It has been raining light/heavy on/off for a week where I live, does this count if it is the norm?
    • Is this only applicable to one who is praying in Jama'a at the Masjid? (vs combining in the luxury of one's home)?

    Not to combine Tadeeman at all.

    Scholars refer to rain that make people's clothes wet. Sh bin Uthimeen as I recall said: "wetness mean that when you squeeze your clothes water comes out of it"

    Does it have to be heavy rain? or can be light rain as well?
    Answered above

    You act based on the current situation not on the expected one.

    Is this only applicable to one who is praying in Jama'a at the Masjid? (vs combining in the luxury of one's home)?
    Schoalrs who permitted it, only allowed it when it is prayed in masjid.

      This is interesting...how so? (when viewing the narration in Bukhari above?) If it's too complex and over my head I understand, just curious...

        This is very lentghy topic that I ahve no time to explain. However, you can rest assured that the majority view that it is allowed in case you follow that view.

        One of the conditions according to scholars who accept combining Taqdeeman is that rain is to be heavy at the time you start the first Takbeer of Ihraam of the first Salah and at the time of the Takbeer of the Ihraam of the second Salah. So, you have to have such conditions fullfiled so that you can pray that way.
