Question

If the sun gets eclipsed at the time of Salaat al-‘Asr, what should we do?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

If the sun is eclipsed after the Adhaan for ‘Asr, you should pray the obligatory prayer first (i.e., ‘Asr), then pray Salaat al-Kusoof. If the sun is eclipsed before the Adhaan for ‘Asr, then pray Salaat al-Kusoof and when it is finished, give the Adhaan for ‘Asr and pray the fard (obligatory) prayer. It does not matter if the Adhaan is given later than the beginning of the time for ‘Asr.
