Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran: “Salaah at fixed times has been enjoined on the believers.” (4:103) It is forbidden to read any Salaah or to make Sajdah Tilaawah during these 3 times of the day:
1. When the sun is rising.
2. When the sun is at its highest point (Zawaal).
3. When the sun is setting.
It is forbidden to read any Nafil Salaah:
a. after the break of dawn,
b. before sunrise,
c. after the Fard of the Fajar Salaah,
d. after Asar Salaah until sunset, and
e. during the Khutbah of both the Eids and the Jummah Salaah.
