Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam MalikThe beginning of the timing for Asar prayer is, in fact, the end of the period for zuhr
The last portion of the period for zuhr and the first portion of the period for asr (a stretch of time sufficient for four (ordinary) raktas is a common time for both prayers.
In the prayer led by Jibril, it is stated that he prayed zuhr with the Prophet (God's peace and blessings be upon him) on the second day at the time at which he had prayed asar on the first day. This shows that there is a common time for both prayers
Imam ShafiThe beginning of the timing for Asar prayer is, in fact, the end of the period for .zuhr, and this occurs when the shadow of a thing becomes equal to its height.
the end of the period for zuhr is the point of time at which the timing for asr begins, and is an indivisible moment.
