Can one pray or recite the Quran during Zawal time?

Question:

Can one pray or recite the Quran during Zawal time?

Answer:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) forbade Muslims from performing Salah when the sun is at its Zenith (Zawal). He did not explicitly prohibit Muslims from reciting the Quran at this time. Some scholars have said that because the recitation of the Quran is also part of Salah (i.e. the recitation of Surah Fatiha), it should not be read at the time of Zawal. However, as long as a person does not make a permanent habit of reciting the Quran at Zawal, he/she is free to recite the Quran at this time. If he/she is required to perform a Sajda Tilawa (prostration of recitation), then he/she performs this after Zawal time.
