what should be the minimum time gap
between azaan and namaaz in
congregation for the maghrib prayer


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His Slave
and Messenger.
There is no minimum time gap between
the Athaan and Iqaamah of Maghrib
prayer. It was authentically narrated
that "the Prophet used to perform
Maghrib prayer after the sun had set
when its upper side would
disappear…" [Ahmad and Abu Daawood]

Another narration reads: "When the sun
sets and disappears into the curtain of
darkness…" [Muslim]
However, it would be preferable that
the Imaam takes into consideration the
circumstances of the congregation and
delays the Iqaamah for the period of
performing two Rak'aat before Maghrib
prayer. It was authentically narrated
that the Prophet said: "Perform
two Rak‘ahs before Maghrib; Perform
two Rak'ahs before Maghrib." In the
third time he added: "for whoever
wills," fearing that people would
consider it a Sunnah. [Ahmad]
It should be noted that the time for
Maghrib prayer extends until the
absence of the twilight because the
Prophet said: "The time of Maghrib
prayer continues as long as the twilight
has not disappeared." [Muslim]
Allah Knows best.
