Zawaal time commencing while one is performing Salaah

Q: If a person is performing nafil salah and his watch beeps to say zawaal time has come in, should he finish the salaah as soon as possible or should he break the salaah?

A: It is makrooh-e-tahrimi to perform any nafil Salaah at the time of zawaal. Hence one should immediately break the Salaah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
