The Prophet pbuh said “Whoever of you has completed one prostration of the afternoon
prayer before the sun has set should complete his prayer. If one of you completes one
prostration of the morning prayer before the sun has risen, he should complete his
prayer.” (Recorded by Al-Bukhaari) Here the meaning of prostration is rak’ah. The
clear meaning of the narration is that one who completes one rak’ah of the morning or
afternoon prayer should complete the prayer even if the sun is setting or rising, even
though those are times in which it is not liked to pray. If one rak’ah is performed, then
the prayer is to be completed and the obligation of prayer will have been fulfilled,
however, it is not allowed to intentionally delay those prayers until such times.
