Offering Tahiyyatul-Masjid during the prohibited time
Question:

If a man enters the Masjid during a time when it is prohibited to pray, should he offer Tahiyyatul-Masjid (prayer for greeting the Masjid) or not?
Answer:

It is better for the person to offer Tahiyyatul-Masjid according to the more correct of the two opinions of the scholars. This is due to the generality of the prophet's statement:

"When one of you enters the Masjid, he should not sit until he prays two Rak'ahs."

(Al-Bukhari no.1163 and Muslim no. 714)

This Hadith's authenticity is agreed upon (in Al-Bukhari and Muslim). However, if he sits and does not offer the prayer, there is no harm in that.
