    1. After praising Allah and sending salutations upon the prophet. As for combining prayers this is only permissible when there is a hardship that one cannot pray on time. As the best prayers are the prayers prayed at the earliest time on time. As when the prophet peace be upon him was asked which deed is most beloved to Allah, “Prayer offered on time”. Agreed upon. Also Allah says in surah baqarah verse 238: Strictly guard the five prayers especially illy the middle prayer. And tan before Allah with obedience. And in nisaa verse 103 Allah says indeed the prayers is prescribed on the believers at fixed times.
      If there is no way to pray on time due to circumstances such as sickness or istihaadah for women or legitimate fear of lost of wealth or life or severe weather condition than one may combine prayers without shortening them. This is due to the narration of ibn Abbas that the prophet upon who be peace joined thuhr and asr and maghrib and ishaa in madeenah when there was no fear and no rain. And when asked about that he may Allah be pleased with him said : He peace be upon him did not want to cause hardship for his ummah. And Allah knows best
