Islam’s Prohibitions that Don’t Apply to Prophet Muhammad

Islam’s Prohibitions that Don’t Apply to Prophet Muhammad ~ Hi all readers! In some of the previous articles I explained the prohibition on performing prayer at some times; after Asr until sunset, after Fajr prayer until the sun rises, and when the sun is right above the head. Well, in this article I will explain the occurrence of steps when there is someone who performs prayers whose status is recommended (sunah prayer) at one of the forbidden times.

As always, before I speak more, I will quote the hadith which is specifically related to our discussion.

Hadith About Islam’s Prohibitions that Don’t Apply to Prophet Muhammad

The hadith about Islam’s prohibitions that don’t apply to Prophet Muhammad that I mean is as follows;

عَنْ أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ تَعَالَى عَنْهَا قَالَتْ : صَلَّى رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْعَصْرَ ثُمَّ دَخَلَ بَيْتِيْ ، فَصَلَّى رَكْعَتَيْنِ فَسَأَلْتُهُ . فَقَالَ : شُغِلْتُ عَنْ رَكْعَتَيْنِ بَعْدَ الظُّهْرِ فَصَلَّيْتُهَا الْآنَ . فَقُلْتُ : أَفَنَقْضِيْهِمَا إِذَا فَاتَنَا؟ قَالَ : لَا . أَخْرَجَهُ أَحْمَدُ

From Umm Salamah radliyallaahu Ta’ala ha anhaa, she said, “Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu alahi wa sallam had prayed Asr then he entered my house. He then prayed two rak’ahs. I then asked him. He then said, “I have been busy so that I cannot perform two rak’ah sunah prayers after the dhuhr prayer. I then do it now.” I then said, “Can we replace it if we have missed it?” He said, “No.” The hadith was narrated by Ahmad.

All readers! You have to know, that there are many things that are prohibited by many people but can only be done by the Prophet Muhammad, such as marrying nine women, he is obliged to do the evening prayer, he is obliged to perform the sunah prayers that he once did, and he is obliged to pray another time if he doesn’t do it normally.

In the hadith explained, that usually the Prophet Muhammad performed sunah prayers after the Dhuhr prayer. One day he was too busy so he could not do the sunah prayer as usual. That’s why he performed the prayer after the Asr prayer instead. Thus, the prohibition on praying at times that I have explained does not apply to him.
