Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


There is no Qasr (short salah) of Maghrib. You will pray 3 rakat Fard, with Surah Fatihah & another surah in first 2 rakat and only Surah Fatiha in the last rakat.

You will shorten your Eshaa Salah to 2 rakat in which you will read Surah Fatiha with another Surah in both the rakaats.

And Allah knows best
