Is Janazah Salaah after the Asr Salaah permissible?


Salamalikom. In Mecca the imam prays janazah after Asr farz is done. Is this permissible?


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

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

It is permissible for one to perform alāh al-janāzah immediately after alāh al-Asr as they do in Makkah al-Mukarramah.[i]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

المبسوط للسرخسي (1/ 153)

ولكن يجوز أداء الفريضة في هذين الوقتين وكذلك الصلاة على الجنازة وسجدة التلاوة،


تحفة الفقهاء (1/ 107)

وكذا أداء الواجبات في هذه الأوقات من سجدة التلاوة وصلاة الجنازة يجوز من غير كراهة


كنز الدقائق (ص: 155)

ومنع عن الصّلاة وسجدة التّلاوة وصلاة الجنازة عند الطّلوع والاستواء والغروب إلّا عصر يومه وعن التّنفّل بعد صلاة الفجر والعصر لا عن قضاء فائتةٍ وسجدة تلاوةٍ وصلاة جنازة
