Latest Time for Mincha


If one is trying to daven mincha before sunset (the time that would be 18 minutes after candlelighting if it were a Friday), and he barely misses this time, and there is still some visible daylight in the minutes that immediately follow, is he still permitted to daven mincha then? Or does he wait until maariv and recite maariv amidah twice?



  1. Ideally, you should daven Mincha before Shkiah. If it is already later, you can daven up to thirteen minutes after Shkia, so long as you are finished by then.
