Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question:Assalam, ‘aleykum. I’m a Hanafi currently in Egypt. Should I still pray Asr in the mosque before the Hanafi time comes in or should I pray by myself when the Hanafi time comes in?

Answer: Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

This is permissible, as the earlier Asr time is a sound and followable position in the Hanafi school. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah; Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]

Please see: The Hanafi `Asr Time and: Why Are Two Times Valid for Fajr and ‘Asr Prayer?

And Allah knows best.

Wassalam,
