Offering Obligatory Prayer before Its Time: Permissible?

Ruling on Offering Obligatory Prayer before Its Due Time


Is it allowed to offer an obligatory prayer before its fixed time? 


Almighty Allah says:

Indeed, prayer has been decreed upon the believers a decree of specified times. (An-Nisa’ 4:103)

There is a consensus among scholars that offering an obligatory prayer before the adhan (call of prayer) or its fixed time is not allowed and such prayer is not valid. A person who does not have an excuse and he/she can pray on time then he/she must pray on time. One cannot pray before the fixed time just because he is busy or he has engaged with something.
