• Joining Prayers While Traveling (Maliki)

    According to the Maliki madhab, it is a permissible dispensation (rukhsa) to join prayers while traveling. The travel does not have to be one where the distance allows you to shorten the prayer, you merely have to be out of your city limits. Once you are out of your city limits, and traveling to do something that is not disobedience, then you can either bring Asr (or Isha) forward or delay Dhuhr (or Maghrib) depending on your situation. If you are in a resting place when Dhuhr enters, and you intend to be traveling until Maghrib, then you can bring Asr forward. In the case of Maghrib, if you are resting while it enters and you will then travel past fajr time, then you can bring Isha forward.
