The Messenger ﷺ said, ‘There is no prayer in the presence of food.’ Some people use this ḥadīth as evidence to delay the maghrib prayer during Ramaḍān. So what is your guidance regarding this?”

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān:

Our guidance regarding this is the action of the Messenger ﷺ. When the sun had set, he used to break his fast with fresh dates – if it was the season (of fresh dates), and if there were no (fresh dates) then with dry dates. If there were no fresh dates or dry dates available, then he would have sips of water, and then he would leave for prayer. Therefore we do just as the Messenger ﷺ did.
