Performing Tilawat and Tasbeeh During the Zawal Time

CategoriesQur'an [156]

Fatwa ID: 05334       


Answered by: Mufti Mujahid Hussain 




Dear Sir,
We cannot perform namaz in zawal time but can we perform other religious activities, such as tilawat Quran or tasbeeh in zawal and makrooh timings?  




In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




Yes, you can. The hadith of the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasalm only mention the prohibition of salah, and likewise, the scholars say that only salah is prohibited As mentioned in Al-Hidaya

لا تجوز الصلاة عند طلوع الشمس ولا عند قيامها في الظهيرة ولا عند غروبها

“ Salah is not permissible at sun rising time,  nor at noon, nor at the time of sunset”[1]



Only Allah knows best
