Islamic Prayer Time

 



Prayer Time

Imsak
Imsak means abstention from food, drink, and all that invalidates Sawm from the beginning of the appointed time of Sawm. Allah (Glorified and Exalted is He) clarifies in the Glorious Qur'an the starting time of Sawm, which is the break of dawn, saying: ...and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night), then complete your Saum (fast) till the nightfall. The Adhan for Fajr Prayer is a proclamation of the break of dawn. Therefore, you have to stop eating and drinking when you hear it. (Part No. 9; Page No. 24) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

Fajr
The Fajr prayer is one of the five mandatory salah. As an Islamic day starts at sunset, the Fajr prayer is technically the third prayer of the day. If counted from midnight, it is the first prayer of the day, the Isha prayer, the previous one in the prayer order, usually isn't after midnight.

Sunrise
The Ishraq prayer is an optional prayer or salah, that is done about 15-20 minutes after the sun rises. Before you go to bed, research what time the sun will rise in your city for the next day, and set an alarm for that time.

Dhuhr
The noon prayer is one of the five mandatory salah. As an Islamic day starts at sunset, the Zuhr prayer is technically the fourth prayer of the day. If counted from midnight, it is the second prayer of the day. It contains four units and begins after the sun reaches its zenith.
