Muslimpress:Muslims offer 5 times of prayers or Salaah during the day and each prayers has its specific time table, but is it possible to offer two subsequent payers right after each other?When joining prayers during the time of the first of the two prayers, they should be prayed one after the other. It is OK to have what is regarded as a short break between them, as it was proven that the Prophet(PBUH) did that. And he said: “Pray as you have seen me praying. ”(Narrated by al - Bukhaari, Kitaab al - Adhaan, 631). The correct view is that the intention(niyyah)[i. e., having the intention to combine the prayers before starting the first prayer] is not a condition. But with regard to joining prayers during the time of the second of the two prayers, there is more leeway, because the second prayer is being performed at its right time. But it is better to pray them one after the other, following the example of the Prophet(AS).Joining Salaah during illness Also, it is permissible for sick people to join prayers, so he may join Zuhr and ‘Asr, and Maghrib and ‘Isha’, at the time of the earlier or later prayer, depending on what is easiest for him. Difficulty caused by sickness is one of the excuses which make it permissible to join prayers. The Prophet (AS) granted a concession to the woman who suffered from istihaadah (non-menstrual bleeding), and he allowed her to join prayers. Narrated by Abu Dawood (287) and al-Tirmidhi (128).
