Ruling 757

The time for the nāfilah of maghrib is after performing the maghrib prayer, and as much as possible, it should be performed after performing the maghrib prayer within its prescribed time. However, if one delays performing the nāfilah of maghrib until the redness of the western sky – which is visible after the sun sets – disappears, it is better that one first performs the ʿishāʾ prayer.
