Are We Allowed to Pray Dhuhr Twice? ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain the law of Dhuhr prayer, or other obligatory prayers, twice. For example; if we have prayed Dhuhr alone, after that we find other people who have not prayed Dhuhr, are we allowed to pray Dhuhr again with that person?

As always, before I answer the question above, I will quote a hadith that is specifically related to our discussion. Pay attention!

Hadith About Pray Dhuhr Twice

The hadith about pray Dhuhr twice that I mean is as follows:

عَنْ يَزِيْدٍ بْنِ الْأَسْوَدِ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّهُ صَلَّى مَعَ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ، إِذَا هُوَ بِرَجُلَيْنِ لَمْ يُصَلِّيَا فَدَعَا بِهِمَا ، فَجِيْءَ بِهِمَا تَرْعَدُ فَرَائِصُهُمَا ، فَقَالَ لَهُمَا ؛ مَا مَنَعَكُمَا أَنْ تُصَلِّيَا مَعَنَا ؟ قَالَا ؛ قَدْ صَلَّيْنَا فِيْ رِحَالِنَا . قَالَ ؛ فَلَا تَفْعَلَا إِذَا صَلَّيْتُمَا فِيْ رِحَالِكُمَا ثُمَّ أَدْرَكْتُمَا الْإِمَامَ وَلَمْ يُصَلِّ فَصَلِّيَا مَعَهُ فَإِنَّهَا لَكُمَا نَافِلَةً . رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ

From Yazid bin al-Aswad radliyallaahu ‘anhu, that in fact he never prayed with the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. He was with two people who did not pray. Allah’s Messenger then called them. Then they both came. Their veins move. The Messenger of Allah then said to both of them, “What made you two not pray with us?” The two of them said, “Indeed we have prayed on our journey.” The Messenger of Allah said, “Don’t do it. If you have prayed on your journey then you find the imam who has not prayed, then pray with him. Surely that (prayer with the priest) is an additional reward for you two.” The hadith is narrated by Ahmad.

There are some important things related to the hadith above that we need to know;

One; The hadith explains the great authority of the Prophet Muhammad

Two; The hadith teaches that we must ask someone who is different from us about the reason.

Three; The hadith explains, that the Prophet Muhammad was very concerned about the condition of people in prayer and showed people who did not know something right.

Four; The hadith explains, that obligatory prayer can be done outside the mosque (not with the imam).
