Ruling 737

If someone who is a traveller has time until sunset to perform three rakʿahs, he must perform the ẓuhr and ʿaṣr prayers in sequence; and if he has less time than this, he must first perform the ʿaṣr prayer and thereafter the ẓuhr prayer with the intention of qaḍāʾ. If a person has time until midnight to perform four rakʿahs, he must perform the maghrib and ʿishāʾ prayers in sequence; and if he has time to perform only three rakʿahs, he must first perform the ʿishāʾ prayer and then the maghrib prayer so that he has performed one rakʿah of the maghrib prayer within its time. If he has time for less than three rakʿahs, he must first perform the ʿishāʾ prayer and thereafter the maghrib prayer without making the intention of adāʾ or qaḍāʾ; and in the event that after performing the ʿishāʾ prayer he realises that there is still time until midnight for one or more rakʿahs, he must immediately perform the maghrib prayer with the intention of adāʾ.
