Company not giving one time to perform Salaah

Q: I work from 2:30 till 10:00pm and salaah is at: Asr 8:00, Maghrib 9:16, Esha 10:00. Where I work is on a production belt so one can't just walk off for salaah. I could possibly only be able to read Asr. What do I do? I am so worried the company can't work around this issue. I am regular in salaah.

A: Salaah is the most important pillar of Islam. The first thing a person will be questioned on the day of Qiyaamah will be in regard to Salaah. Severe grave warnings have been sounded in the Qur'an and Ahaadith for the one who forgoes his Salaah. If the company is not prepared to relive you to perform Salaah, then you should look for another job.

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