Missed „asr and reaches masjid when maghrib prayer has started. What he should do?

If a person has missed asr prayer and arrives at the masjid to find that maghrib
prayer has started, what should he do?

 
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: He should pray
maghrib with the imaam, then pray  asr, as is agreed upon by all leading scholars.

 

As
to whether he should repeat maghrib, there are two opinions.

The first is that he
should repeat it; this is the view of Ibn Umar, Maalik and Abu Haneefah, and the
most well known view of Ahmad.

 

The second opinion is that he does not have to
repeat it; this is the view of Ibn Abbaas and al-Shaafi‘i, and the second view of
Ahmad.

 

The second view is more correct, because Allaah did not make it obligatory
for a person to pray a salaah twice if he has feared Allaah as much as he can. And
Allaah knows best. (Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn Taymiyah, 22/106).
