There can be no excuses as far as Salah is concerned. We have to pray all thefive prayers and all of them on time.
"O you who believe! Fear Allah, and be with those who are true (in words and deeds)." [ al-Tawbah:119]
"Guard strictly the (five obligatory) prayers, especially the middle Salaat (?Asr). And stand before Allah with obedience." [Surah al-Baqarah 2:238]
