What If the Friday Prayer Falls during an Exam?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani


We should try to plan and take the means to avoid the conflict between exams and Friday prayer. It is about being conscious of the upcoming schedules beforehand to avoid such situations. You can also consult your local scholars in such situations.

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani spent ten years studying with some of the leading scholars of recent times, first in Damascus and then in Amman, Jordan. His teachers include the foremost theologian of recent times in Damascus, the late Shaykh Adib al-Kallas (may Allah have mercy on him), as well as his student Shaykh Hassan al-Hindi, one of the leading Hanafi fuqaha of the present age. He returned to Canada in 2007, where he founded SeekersGuidance in order to meet the urgent need to spread Islamic knowledge–both online and on the ground–in a reliable, relevant, inspiring, and accessible manner.
