Can One Pray at Anytime?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Can one pray at any time?
For what reasons can I pray?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
There are two things:
(1) You can pray voluntary prayers whenever you wish, except during the disliked times. [see: Prohibited times for Prayers and Makeup Prayers]
(2) You can supplicate at any time, day or night.
