This has got to be the earliest ever UK Fajr start time:
And no, that wasn't a mistake, It has been confirmed by the mosque as correct. (1:08am on the date of posting)
Compare that with this:

or this: http://www.masjidtawhid.org/
(3:16 am on the date of posting)
That would mean people fasting today following the first timetable would have a two hour longer fast than those in other parts of London, and once they finish praying taraweeh, when they come home it will nearly be time to eat suhoor. Subhaanallah..
That makes it three and a half hours from the beginning of fajr to sunrise.
Are other mosques doing this too?
The deen is supposed to be easy (addeenu yusrun).
We are supposed to "hasten the breaking of the fast and delay the Suhoor". [Sahih al-Jami`]. In this case it seems that suhoor is being hastened instead.
I guess in Ramadhan, once Tooting and Balham Muslims finish praying taraweeh, when they come home it will nearly be time to eat suhoor. Subhaanallah.
Just thought I would share this, and may Allah forgive me if I said anything wrong.
