Timings for Fardh Prayers

Five daily prayers must be offered during their prescribed time periods. Allah (SWT) has made religion easy to follow and has made it convenient for Muslims to offer obligatory Prayers during a time period that is somewhat flexible. However, it is desirable and one should strive to offer Salat in its early part of time period. Following are the time periods that are prescribed for five daily prayers:

1. FAJR (DAWN)
The time of the Dawn prayer starts one quarter hours before sunrise and ends before sunrise. It is strictly forbidden to pray while the sun is still rising.

2. ZUHR (NOON)
The time for Zuhr prayer starts with the decline of the sun and continues until the start of the time of ASR prayer.

3. ASR (AFTERNON)
The time of the ASR prayer starts at mid afternoon and ends before sunset.

4. MAGHRIB (SUNSET)
The time of Maghrib prayer starts after sunset and continues till it is dark.

5. ISHA (EVENING)
The time of ISHA starts at night-fall and continues up to midnight.

a.  When sun is rising
