To Delay Zuhr in Summer & While Traveling (Ahadith 510-514)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 10, Number 510:

Narrated Abu Huraira and ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle said, “If it is very hot, then pray the Zuhr prayer when it becomes (a bit) cooler, as the severity of the heat is from the raging of the Hell-fire.”

Scholars, while commenting on this Hadith, say that it can be either real or a parable that the Prophet (SAW) used to explain the concept of heat and its severity.. Either way, it’s good to delay zuhr on a hot day.

Volume 1, Book 10, Number 511:

Narrated Abu Dhar:

The Muadhdhin (call-maker) of the Prophet pronounced the Adhan (call) for the Zuhr prayer but the Prophet said, “Let it be cooler, let it be cooler.” Or said, ‘Wait, wait, because the severity of heat is from the raging of the Hell-fire. In severe hot weather, pray when it becomes (a bit) cooler and the shadows of hillocks appear.”

Shadows of the hillocks appear: sun starts to come down after reaching the peak (zawaal).

Volume 1, Book 10, Number 512:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, “In very hot weather delay the Zuhr prayer till it becomes (a bit) cooler because the severity of heat is from the raging of Hell-fire. The Hell-fire of Hell complained to its Lord saying: O Lord! My parts are eating (destroying) one another. So Allah allowed it to take two breaths, one in the winter and the other in the summer. The breath in the summer is at the time when you feel the severest heat and the breath in the winter is at the time when you feel the severest cold.”

When I got to know this ^, I realized that extreme weather is a sort of punishment for us. And guess what global warming is promising us? May Allah protect us from it!

When it’s extremely hot, remember the breath of jahannam and seek Allah’s protection from the Hell-fire. When it’s extremely cold, remember that there’s a valley in jahannam called zamhareer, where it’s extremely cold (and that’ll burn too), and seek Allah’s protection from it.

Volume 1, Book 10, Number 513:

Narrated Abu Sa’id:

that Allah’s Apostle said, “Pray Zuhr prayer when it becomes (a bit) cooler as the severity of heat is from the raging of the Hell-fire.”

Volume 1, Book 10, Number 514:

Narrated Abu Dhar Al-Ghifar:

We were with the Prophet on a journey and the Mu’adhdhin (call maker for the prayer) wanted to pronounce the Adhan (call) for the Zuhr prayer. The Prophet said, ‘Let it become cooler.” He again (after a while) wanted to pronounce the Adhan but the Prophet said to him, “Let it become cooler till we see the shadows of hillocks.” The Prophet added, “The severity of heat is from the raging of the Hell-fire, and in very hot weather pray (Zuhr) when it becomes cooler.”

While traveling, one may delay their zuhr prayer as well, as seen from the Prophet (SAW)’s sunnah.

Wassalam.
