Recommendation to Performing Qasr Prayer

Recommendation to Performing Qasr Prayer ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain the suggestion to perform the Qasr prayer. I think the conclusion of this discussion is clear. But there is another thing that I want to explain, that it is better for someone to doing Qasr prayer than not if he is in a condition that allows him to do it.

As always, before I explain the topic of this article further, I will quote one hadith that is specifically related to this discussion. Pay attention!

Hadith About Recommendation to Performing Qasr Prayer

The hadith about recommendation to performing Qasr prayer that I mean is as follows:

عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ ؛ قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ؛ إِنَّ اللهَ يُحِبُّ أَنْ تُؤْتَى رُخَصَهُ كَمْا يَكْرَهُ أَنْ تُؤْتَى مَعْصِيَتُهُ . رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ

From Ibn Umar radliyallaahu ‘anhumaa, he said, “Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “Verily Allah like if His reliefs are done just as He does not like anyone who fight to Him.” The hadith is narrated by Ahmad.

There is one important thing related to the hadith above that I want to quote, that the hadith explains, that carrying out the relief given by Islam to its followers is more than not doing it.

Thus, if there were people who were on their way, it would be better to perform the Qasr prayer than he would do the prayer with a complete number of rak’ahs. All of that is because Allah does not want His servants to carry out the teachings of Islam in a difficult way. Allah say;

شَهۡرُ رَمَضَانَ ٱلَّذِيٓ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانُ هُدٗى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَٰتٖ مِّنَ ٱلۡهُدَىٰ وَٱلۡفُرۡقَانِۚ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ ٱلشَّهۡرَ فَلۡيَصُمۡهُۖ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوۡ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٖ فَعِدَّةٞ مِّنۡ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَۗ يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ بِكُمُ ٱلۡيُسۡرَ وَلَا يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ ٱلۡعُسۡرَ وَلِتُكۡمِلُواْ ٱلۡعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُواْ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَىٰكُمۡ وَلَعَلَّكُمۡ تَشۡكُرُونَ ١٨٥
