Title: Leaving classes for salaah with Jamā’ah


Aslam o alaikum, I'm a student and I pray duhur in my university timmings. The congregation starts at 1:30. My new semester teacher wants to change the timming of the class and that will clash with my congregation timming. I asked him not to do so, but he insists. Is it allowed for me to leave the congregation and then pray on my own after the class or not ? Can you please provide some shariah evidence that I may convince him?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
