If we start our 4 rakah fard salah at the very end time of zuhr, is the prayer valid? And is there any dislike? Is this same for all prayers? 


The prayer will be valid without any karahah (dislike).

This is not the case for all of the prayers but only for Fajr & Dhuhr. For the other prayers i.e Asr, Magrib & Isha, delaying it for a long of period of time is makruh, though the time may remain.

Al-Imam Amjad Ali al-A’zhami (رحمة الله عليه) writes from the authority of al-Bahrur Raiq:

فجر اور ظہر کے پورے وقت اوّل سے آخر تک بلا کراہت ہیں۔ یعنی یہ نمازیں اپنے وقت کے جس حصے میں پڑھی جائیں اصلاً مکروہ نہیں-

“The Fajr & Dhuhr prayer, from the beginning till the end time, is valid without any dislike – that means these prayers (can be prayed) at any point of time during their allotted time and will not be makruh (disliked).”

[Bahar-e-Shari’ah 3/457]

Allah knows best.
