Question & Answer
Awaal waqt, Wasatul waqt and Akhir waqt; please which among them is more appropriate in Islam and why?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Allah Says in the glorious Quran: "Prayer at fixed hours has been enjoined upon the believers" Quran(4: 103).

Dear brother, if Ones prays ones obligatory (farad) payer between the ‘Awal Waqt’ (means the earliest period for the prescribed prayer) and ‘Akhir Waqt’ (means the end period for the prescribed prayer) then ones prayer will be considered on time.

Thus praying between ‘Awal Waqt’ and ‘Akhir Waqt’ is appropate in islam, however Offering the obligatory prayer in the ‘Awal Waqt’ or earliest time was the preferred Sunnah of our beloved prophet Mohammad (pbuh). And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
