“Pray at the time of the lunar eclipse”
When the solar eclipse is called ‘Küsûf’, the lunar eclipse is called Hüsûf.
In a Hadith-i Sharif narrated by Buhari; The Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] said on the demise of his son Ibrahim: “The Moon and the Sun are the proofs of God's presence and might. These two (Moon and Sun) do not eclipse by the death or life of any one person. If you have witnessed the eclipse of the moon or the sun, pray until the two of them appear clearly.”
At the time of the lunar eclipse, two rak'ah prayers can be performed. Imam Shafii and Ahmed b. Hanbel has argued that Hüsuf prayer is a circumcision and that it can be performing with the congregation. (ILKHA)
