ʿAṣr Ṣalāh at Mithl Awwal
ʿAṣr Ṣalāh time starts at 2.52pm. Some brothers have already started according to the early time. I join them exactly at 2.52pm, I finish my prayer and make up my missed units. Is my Ṣalāh valid or should have performed my own Ṣalāh individually?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
As long as they started ʿAṣr Ṣalāh after mithl awwal, your Ṣalāh is valid. (refer to our earlier Fatwa entitled: Travelling on Plane and performing ʿAṣr Ṣalāh at Mithl Awwal).
Allah knows best
