The Timings for Prayer

Topic/Issue:1014 - Maghrib Prayer
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Malik,Imam ShafiMaghrib has a limited time that is not extendibleThe tradition about the imdma of Jibril states that he offered the maghrib prayer at the same time (at sunset) on both days
Imam Abu Hanifa,Imam Ahmad, also narrated from Imam Malik,Imam ShafiMaghrib has an extended time between sunset and the disappearance of the evening twilight (shafaq)Hadith of Ubn Umar
Tradition of Burayda is preferable as it is a later tradition belonging to the era of Medina and was in response to a question about the timings of prayer, while the tradition of Jibril belongs to the initial stipulation of the duty (of prayer) at Mecca
