What is Salatul Wusta according to Ithna Ashari?

Salam. According to the 6th Imam AS, Salatul Wusta is the noon prayer.

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) wrote in his letter to the Shi’ahs, “Observe the Salat times, especially Salatul wusta (The Noon Prayer). Pray for Allah’s sake, as the Almighty has ordered the believers in His Book." See Chapter 4 and the footnote here:

Noon prayer is Zohr or Zuhr. Afternoon prayer is Asr. 


What is the first prayer according to Ithna Ashari? And if it is Fajr then how can the middle prayer be Zuhr instead of Asr? And is there diffirence of opinion about this?

It confuses me a little because the number of prayers is five in origin.

Only when combining prayers becomes the rule instead of an exception. Zuhr combined with Asr becomes the Middle Prayer.

Shias are allowed to combine the prayers, so there are three time periods:

Fajr (Sobh) Morning prayer

Zohrain (Zohr & Asr) -- Afternooon prayer -- the middle prayer

Maghribain (Maghrib & Isha) Evening prayer
