Joining Salaahs

Q: Just want to find out which salaah's can be joined (read at the same time) when one is a traveller?​

A: Performing each salaah in its respective time is fardh (compulsory). It is not permissible for one to join two salaahs and perform them both in one salaah time, regardless of whether one is residing in one's hometown or one is on a journey. However, during a journey, it is permissible for one to perform one salaah at the end of the time, and the next salaah at the beginning of the following salaah time. In this way, one will be performing each salaah in its respective time and one will not be sinful.

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