Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Maliktime after asar up to sunset is also ProscribedImam Malik, who regards the Medinan practice as a source of law, and found only two timings in practice, but not the third, that is, at the time of the declining of the sun, made an exemption for the prohibition and permitted prayer during that time deeming the proscription as abrogated by practice.
Imam ShafiThe time of the declining of the sun and the time after performing asar prayer (up to sunset) are also Proscribed (except the time of the declining of the sun on Friday) Tradition of Uqba bin Amir shows can't pray at the decline of the sun
Regarding exemption for Friday prayers, Al- Shafi based his opinion on the tradition related by Ibn Shihab which states that they used to pray on Fridays until Umar came out (for the Friday prayer), and it is known that Umar used to come out after the declining of the sun
Also used the tradition of Abu Huraira This tradition was strengthened, in his view, by the practice during the days of ’Umar, though the tradition itself was deemed weak by him.

Regarding Asar prayer, they use the tradition of Abu Huraira and tradtion of Umm Salamathat opposes Aisha tradition
