I live in a country where the 'Isha
prayer is very late (23.40), and the Fajr
prayer is very early (02.40). I have
heard that it is possible to combine the
Maghrib and the 'Isha prayer, if one has
to get early up in the morning to go to
work. Is this true? Is there any fatwa
about this issue?

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.

Allah, The Most High, set a fixed time
for every prayer to be performed in,
and it is not permissible to pray it
earlier or delay it without a sound
reason like traveling, being in a state of
fear, in case of rain, hardship or
difficulty like sickness and the like.
Almighty Allah says (what means):
“When you have finished As-Salaat (the
prayer - congregational), remember
Allah standing, sitting down, and lying
down on your sides, but when you are
free from danger, perform As-Salaat.
Verily, the prayer is enjoined on the
believers at fixed hours.” [Quran 4:103]
The Prophet illustrated the
beginning and the ending of the time of
each prayer. So praying a given prayer,
for instance, before its time will not
serve instead of the prescribed prayer
and it is an obligation to repeat it after
its fixed time begins. The beginning of
the time of Ishaa prayer is when the
red twilight disappears. There is a
consensus of scholars on that.
If, in any country, the red twilight is
delayed even until after midnight, it is
still incumbent upon Muslims in such
country to perform the prayer on its
specific time as long as this juristic time
is evident to them. It is not permissible
for the people of that country to
combine Maghrib and Ishaa prayers
because of the delay of the
disappearance of the red twilight or
because of the night being short.

Allah knows best.
