Chapter : Preference for saying the ‘Asr prayer at the commencement of the prescribed time.

‘Ali reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: On the day (of the Battle) of Ahzab we were diverted from the middle prayer, till the sun set. May Allah fill their graves or their houses, or their stomachs with fire. The narrator is in doubt about “houses” and “stomachs”.
