Q: Is connecting the prayers (performing the prayers successively) deemed permissible or Mustahab (Dhur and Asir, Magrib and Isha’)? One of our Sunni brothers told me that even the Shiite scholars prefer to separate between the prayers. If this is right, why do all the mosques all around the world, connect the prayers? 

A: It is permissible to separate and connect between Dhur and Asr prayers, and between Maghreb and Isha prayers. Also, it is Mustahab to separate them by their voluntary prayers.
