    Re: Prayer Timetable

    You mean from http://www.islamicfinder.org??

    Date= the date of the month you are praying
    Day: the actual day...like monday,tue. wed..
    There are 5 prayers to be prayed each day


    (2 units)Fajr: morning prayer
    *Sunrise:This column just lets you know what time sunrise is..
    (4 units)Dhuhr: Noon prayer
    (4 units)Asr:Afternoon prayer
    (3 units)Maghrib: evening prayer
    (4 units)Isha: night prayer

    Salaams,

    Depending on where you live, prayer times can vary significantly throughout the year. The more north (or south) you are the more the times will change.

    Peace

    Re: Prayer Timetable

    Hope I can ask a related question (which may actually help the OP).

    I have always wondered what the margin for prayer is.

    Fajr Sunr Dhuhr Asr Maghr Isha
    5:02 6:54 11:47 2:09 4:38 6:26

    In the example above, how long is the window during which each prayer can be performed?

    Here I stand.
    I can do no other.
    May God help me.
    Amen.

    Come, let us worship and bow down •
    and kneel before the Lord our Maker

    Re: Prayer Timetable

    Salaams,

    Please define 'units'. Not sure what you mean by it.

    One rakah is one 'cycle' (one unit as crimsontide06 puts it). If this explains it then, alhamdulillah.
    One cycle is
    1) Standing position where you recite the al Fatihah
    2) Bow down
    3) Stand up straight briefly
    4) Sujud (Kneel down with forehead touching the ground)
    5) Sit
    6) Sujud again = one cycle or unit.

    On the second rakah, after the second sujud you sit again and recite the short Tahiyat. (this is repeated on the final rakah for those prayers having more than 2 rakah).

    Still don't know if I have answered your question.

    Peace.

    Re: Prayer Timetable

    Hi Glo,

    Technically it cannot cross the given times. The 'in between' times are not very long. Here where I am people take it around 15 minutes before the next prayer time just to avoid uncertainty. But that is why it is recommended that you pray as soon as it becomes time (as early as possible).

    Peace

    Re: Prayer Timetable

    Could one prayer lead into another? Pray a very late Maghrib followed by an early Isha, for example?

    Re: Prayer Timetable

    This is very technical already... there might be differences of opinions here so I will say it in layman's terms.

    Bottom line is that you HAVE to perform your prayers. So if you cannot make it for whatever 'justifiable' reasons then you will have to make up for it. If you are only able to make it at the end of the specific time (bordering on the next prayer time) then why not. Only thing is that for me, I would not be sure if I actually 'made it' in time or not. The difference is in my 'niat' (kind of proclamation) on whether I am doing it in the time given or am I paying back the missed prayer as they are slightly different. But I am told that if I do start in the given time and during my prayer the time has passed to the next prayer, it is still valid assuming that I am certain that it I started within the allocated time. Makes sense?

    Just to add a bit, that's why in islam the 'niat' is one of the fundamental part of faith. Wrong niat or no niat gives you nothing for the deeds you do. And everything we as muslims do should be in the name of Allah and for His sake. Many muslims forget this crucial element (me inclusive) most of the time. It is so basic that I tend to overlook it.

    Peace

    n certain condition, two prayers can be combined. In example, a Muslim will do traveling few hours that he cannot stop. He can pray dhuhr and asr in dhuhr time.

    But of course, if a Muslim is able to pray within each time, he cannot combine his prayer.
