I have read somewhere that at noon time when sun is exactly at up and making a right angle with earth some dangerous rays emit from earth that's why it is forbidden to pray at that time. But i could find any scientific logic behind that. Can any one explain in detail ?

    prayers aren't allowed at that tym but i doubt the truth behind radiation . Even if you are standing, that radiation could affect you. Apr 1, 2014 at 7:34

'Uqbah bin 'Amir Al-Juhani said:

There are three times at which the Messenger of Allah forbade us to pray or to bury our dead: When the sun has risen fully until it is higher, when it reaches its zenith until it has passed the zenith, and when the sun starts to set

Now keeping verse 3:32 in mind, we cannot pray at sharp noon.

I doubt the validity of the scientific logic you quoted, because it is very unlikely that the rays will harm us while we are under the roof of Masjid.


Prayers are not allowed at that time because earth emits such harmfull rays that can cause dangerious deseases like brain hemorrhage.
