The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [2:185]

    Fasting times are 4.55 - 6.35pm but...

    Report bad ads?

    My fasting hours for today are from 4 55 am to 6 35 pm but the sun rise is at 6 08 am. How come we have to start fasting from 5am and not 6am? I thought we should fasting from sun rise to sun set.

    Fasting is from dawn to sunset, not from sunrise to sunset. Fajr time starts at dawn and ends at sunrise. Fasting starts at Fajr azan and ends at Maghrib azan.

    عن عبد الله بن مسعود رضي الله عنه : ـ
    مَن كانَ مُسْتَنًّا ، فَلْيَسْتَنَّ بمن قد ماتَ ، فإنَّ الحيَّ لا تُؤمَنُ عليه الفِتْنَةُ ، أولئك أصحابُ محمد - صلى الله عليه وسلم - ، كانوا أفضلَ هذه الأمة : أبرَّها قلوبًا ، وأعمقَها علمًا ، وأقلَّها تكلُّفًا ، اختارهم الله لصحبة نبيِّه ، ولإقامة دِينه ، فاعرِفوا لهم فضلَهم ، واتبعُوهم على أثرهم ، وتمسَّكوا بما استَطَعْتُم من أخلاقِهم وسيَرِهم ، فإنهم كانوا على الهُدَى المستقيم
    رواه ابن عبد البر في "جامع بيان العلم وفضله" (2/947ـ رقم 1810) ـ
    ‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood said: “Whoever wants to follow a path, let him follow the path of one who has died, for the living are not safe from fitnah. I mean the Companions of Muhammad . They were the best of this ummah: the purest in heart, the deepest in knowledge and the most straightforward. Allah chose them to accompany His Prophet and establish His religion, so recognise their status and follow in their footsteps and adhere as much as you can to their example of conduct and attitude, for they followed true guidance.” [Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr in Jaami‘ Bayaan al-‘Ilm wa Fadluhu, 2/947, no. 1810]

    I know some muslims start fasting at sunrise, because fasting ends at sunset so they think it makes sense that fasting starts at sunrise.

    But as far as I know fasting in Islam is always from Fajr to Maghrib.

    So using your example, Fajr starts at 4:55 AM, that's when your fasting starts for that day.

    Jabir bin 'Abdullah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said:'A slave (of Allah) shall not believe until he believes in Al-Qadar, its good and its bad, such that he knows that what struck him would not have missed him, and that what missed him would not have struck him." (Jami 'at Tirmidhi)

    Re: Fasting times are 4.55 - 6.35pm but...

    … and eat and drink until the white thread (of light) becomes distinct to you from the black thread (night/darkness) of the dawn. Then strictly observe the fast until/to the night...

    Qur'an (2:187)

    I dont know Arabic so forgive my thickness.

    Maybe it depends on if you are able to make the distinction, through experience or location.

    These days we all live by clocks so it's different..

    But yeah feel free to contribute.


    It's not really an argument either way, for me anyway... I see no practical difference between the two..

    So you have to know and explain why it bothers you.

    Try googling prayer timetables for uae or something..

    I did.

    They close fast about 10 min before prayer, although it may be an inaccurate timetable.

    In the end, I feel it's more important to actually observe the fast properly.

    To keep your intent clean and try to overcome our nafs.

    Allah swt accepts whatever is acceptable to him.

    ...people are always in dispute though.. in the end we all still have to live in the world.


    So now you can move onto who started fasting when..

    People dont know what day it is never mind what time it is...


    I'm kidding but only just.

    Worth a watch..
