Timeline of today's prayer times

  1. End of Asr

    The end of the Asr prayer occurs when the sunlight turns reddish and one can look directly at the sun with the naked eye. It is considered sinful to delay the prayer beyond this point. However, it remains obligatory to perform the Asr prayer until the time of the Maghrib prayer. In emergency situations, the prayer can still be performed after this time without it being considered a sin.
  2. Midnight

    The new day according to the solar calendar. Today, in sha Allah, the sun will set at -32.73° below the horizon. On some days this year, the sun will not descend more than -29.24°.
  3. Islamic Midnight

    The end of the Ishaa time. Islamic midnight refers to the midpoint between sunset (Maghrib) and dawn (Fajr). The midpoint between 8:38 PM and 4:29 AM is 12:34 AM. In northern latitudes the Ishaa in summer can be after the islamic midnight. In this case, Ishaa time extends until Fajr.

  4. Last third of the night

    The last third of the night is considered a time of great importance in Islam and should be increasingly utilized for worship and supplication. The Islamic night begins with Maghrib (8:38 PM) and ends with Fajr (4:29 AM). Therefore, this time refers to the period from 1:54 AM to Fajr.
  5. Fajr Prayer 19° (traditional opinion)

    Until the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire, Fajr in almost all countries was determined by observation and calculation at 19° below the horizon. However, with the influence of Western astronomy and the neglect of Muslim research, Fajr was set at 18°, which was previously a minority opinion in Islamic astronomy.
  6. Fajr MWL

    Fasting begins with Fajr. However, as a precautionary measure, this method subtracts about 2 minutes from the calculated Fajr time for starting the fast. It's important to note that although this adjusted time allows for the commencement of fasting, it might be too early for performing the Fajr prayer.
  7. Fajr

    The true Fajr (18°) is the reference point for the prayer time. Under optimal conditions, the first faint light appears on the horizon, indicating the beginning of the Fajr prayer time. Prayers performed after this time are considered valid. However, there is an opinion to wait a little longer after this time to be sure that the time has indeed begun.

  8. Fajr prayer 90 minutes (wrong)

    The Fajr prayer 90 minutes before sunrise (Shuruk) is valid if it occurs after the time of 18°. However, it is not correct to begin fasting at this time. The shortest and longest times between Fajr and Shuruk this year are 111 and 91 minutes.
  9. Fajr prayer 15° (wrong)

    At 15°, the sky is significantly brighter compared to that at 18°. At this point, the red glow of the sun becomes stronger. Although it is permissible to perform the Fajr prayer at this time, it's important to note that starting the fast at this stage would be too late.
  10. Fajr prayer 12° (wrong)

    At this stage, the horizon is well defined, and the outlines of objects on land or at sea become clearer. During nautical dawn, the sky displays a mixture of deep blue and reddish-violet hues. The Fajr prayer at this time would be valid, but consuming food until this time would invalidate the fast.
  11. Shuruk (sunrise) MWL with precautionary measures implemented

    The sun should now be just below the horizon, but if you are on a mountain peak, it may become visible earlier. To account for this, this schedule adds 2 minutes to the calculated time for sunrise as a precaution. It is considered risky not to complete the prayer before the end of this adjusted time.
  12. Shuruk (sunrise)

    Sunrise by calculation. In most cases, it would already be too late for the Fajr prayer.
  13. Ḍuhā time

    Ḍuhā begins when the Sun is elevated one spear length, and lasts until Istiwāʾ. This is also the time of the ʿĪd prayer.
  14. Dhuhr

    The Dhuhr prayer begins after the sun has passed its zenith (highest point) and started to decline. It ends with the beginning of the Asr prayer time (the afternoon prayer).

  16. Asr

    Asr begins when the shadow of an object is equal to its actual length plus the length of its shadow at the time of Dhuhr.

  18. Asr (Hanafi)

    Asr, according to one opinion in the Hanafi madhhab, begins when the shadow of an object becomes twice its actual length plus the length of its shadow during the Dhuhr prayer. It is noteworthy that this is just one opinion of the Hanafi madhhab. Not all Hanafis share this opinion. Countries like Turkey do not use this method.
  19. Maghrib

    Sunset through calculation and thus the new day according to the Islamic calendar. In many cases, it would be too early to pray and too early to break the fast.

  21. Ishaa prayer at 12° (wrong)

    The sky displays a mixture of deep blue and reddish-violet hues during nautical twilight. The Ishaa prayer at this time would be invalid in any case.
  22. Ishaa Prayer at 15° (high risk)

    The sky becomes significantly darker at 15°. The last sunlight is now only faintly visible near the horizon. In areas with light pollution, artificial light may already be stronger than sunlight. The reddening of the sky starts to fade away at this point, although it may remain visible until 17°.
  23. Ishaa prayer 90 minutes after sunset (wrong).

    The Ishaa prayer 90 minutes after sunset (Maghrib) is only valid if it occurs after the Ishaa of 17°. The shortest and longest time between Maghrib and Ishaa this year are 111 and 91 minutes.
  24. Ishaa

    The Ishaa prayer begins after the disappearance of the redness of the evening twilight. This occurs approximately when the sun is 17 degrees below the horizon. Ishaa ends with the Islamic midnight.

  26. Midnight

    The new day according to the solar calendar. Today, in sha Allah, the sun will set at -32.94° below the horizon. On some days this year, the sun will not descend lower than -29.24°.
  27. Isha ends with Fajr (Ijtihad)

    In the north, the Islamic midnight (12:34 AM) can occur on some days after isha. Should this case occur, or if there is no longer enough time to perform isha before midnight, isha will be extended until Fajr.
