Saheeh Al-Jami ‘As-Saghir Hadith No. 294

By almaas Sep 13, 2020

إذا أدْرَكَ أحَدُكُمْ سَجْدَةً مِنْ صَلاةِ العَصْرِ قَبْلَ أنْ تَغْرُبَ الشَّمْسُ فَلْيُتِمَّ صَلاَتَهُ وإذا أدرك سجدة من صلاة الصبح قبل أن تطلع الشمس فليتم صلاته”.
(صحيح) … [خ ن] عن أبي هريرة. الصحيحة 66)

It is reported that Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“If anyone of you can get one rak`a of the `Asr prayer before sunset, he should complete his prayer. If any of you can get one rak`a of the Fajr prayer before sunrise, he should complete his prayer.” 

This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari 556 and al-Nasai 1/257.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Saheeh al-jami ‘as-saghir 294.

Grade: صحيح


This means that if, in the period of time allotted for the afternoon or any other prayer, a person manages to complete at least one rak’at in full, and then brings his prayer to completion, then it will be valid.
