Times That’s Not Allowed to Be Used for Prayer and Burying the Dead ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will discuss a theme related to ourselves and the good of others. Yup! What I mean is, now we will discuss the time in which we are forbidden from praying and burying dead bodies! Previously I had to explain, that what is meant by prayer here is prayer whose status is a recommendation, not an obligation.
Usually, prayers whose status is recommended are prayers that are performed before the obligatory prayer (qabliyah prayer), prayers that are performed after the obligatory prayer (ba’diyah prayer), prayer to honor the mosque (tahiyyatul masjid), and so forth. As Muslims, we really need to know about it.
As usual, before I explain more times that’s not allowed to be used for prayer and burying the dead, I will quote the hadith which is specifically related to our discussion.
Hadith About Times That’s Not Allowed to Be Used for Prayer and Burying the Dead
The hadith about times that’s not allowed to be used for prayer and burying the dead that I mean is as follows;
عَنْ أَبِيْ سَعِيْدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ رَضِيَ اللهُ تَعَالَى عَنْهُ قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُوْلُ : لَا صَلَاةَ بَعْدَ الصُّبْحِ حَتَّى تَطْلُعَ الشَّمْسُ ، وَلَا صَلَاةَ بَعْدَ الْعَصْرِ حَتَّى تَغِيْبَ الشَّمْسُ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ
From Abu Sa’id al-Khudri radliyallaahu Taala anhu, he said, “I have heard the Messenger of Allah sallaallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “There is no recommended prayer after Fajr prayer until sunrise and no prayer is recommended after Asr prayer until sunset.” The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
All readers! If we have understood the hadith above, then of course we already know, that the times that are forbidden to perform prayers whose recommended status and to bury a dead body are the time after Fajr prayer and the time after the Asr prayer. In other words, we may do it all at times other than those times.
There are some important things related to the hadith above that we need to know;
One; There are no sunah prayers that can be done when the sun rises, just above the head, and when it sets.
