The Times of Prayer (Salat) in Islam

Islamic Rule Online: The Times of Prayer (Salat) in Islam ~ Hi all readers! In the art this time I will explain about the time of prayer. What I mean is, when will one prayer begin and when will it end. For example, is the Dhuhur prayer; when is the beginning of the Dhuhr prayer time and when is the last time. Maybe we already know about that. But I think there are some of us who don’t know the basics yet. So, as Muslims we need to know about that.

As always, before I explain more about times of prayer (salat), I will quote several hadiths related to this theme. Pay attention;

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عَمْرُو رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : وَقْتُ الظُّهْرِ إِذَا زَالَتْ الشَّمْسُ ، وَكَانَ ظِلُّ الرَّجُلِ كَطُوْلِهِ مَا لَمْ يَحْضُرْ وَقْتُ الْعَصْرِ ، وَوَقْتُ الْعَصْرِ مَا لَمْ تَصْفِرَّ الشَّمْسُ ، وَ وَقْتُ صَلَاةِ الْمَغْرِبِ مَا لَمْ يَغِبِ الشَّفَقُ ، وَوَقْتُ صَلَاةُ الْعِشَاءِ إِلَى نِصْفِ اللَّيْلِ الْأَوْسَطِ ، وَوَقْتُ صَلَاةِ الصُّبْحِ مِنَ الْفَجْرِ مَا لَمْ تَطْلُعْ الشَّمْسُ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ

From Abdullah bin ru Amru radliyallaahu anhumaa, that the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “The Dhuhur prayer time is if the sun is leaning westward and someone’s shadow is like its length until the time of Asr has not arrived. Asr prayer time is as long as the sun has not turned yellow. Maghrib prayer time is not gone. Isha prayer time is until midnight. Shubuh prayer times are from the dawn of dawn to sunrise.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim.

وَلَهُ مِنْ حَدِيْثِ بُرَيْدَةَ فِيْ الْعَصْرِ : وَالشَّمْسُ بَيْضَاءُ نَقِيَّةٌ

He (Muslim) has a history of other hadiths from Buraidah about Asr prayer time, “The color is clear.”

وَ مِنْ حَدِيْثِ أَبِيْ مُوْسَى : وَالشَّمْسُ مُرْتَفِعَةٌ

And from the hadith narrated by Abu Musa, “The sun is not leaning westward.”

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ : أَعْتَمَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ذَاتَ لَيْلَةٍ بِالْعَشَاءِ حَتَّى عَامَةِ اللَّيْلِ ، ثُمَّ خَرَجَ فَصَلَّى ، وَقَالَ : إِنَّهُ لِوَقْتِهَا لَوْ لَا أَنْ أَشُقَّ عَلَى أُمَّتِيْ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ

From Aisha radliyallaahu anhaa, she said,” One night, the Prophet sallallaahu aih alaihi wa sallam once ended the Isha prayer ‘at the end of the night until the night was completely dark. Then he went out and prayed. “He said,” Indeed it is time, if I do not burden my people. “The hadith is narrated by Muslim.


Times That’s Not Allowed to Be Used for Prayer and Burying the Dead

Prayer Times; Difference About Some Goodness

All readers! Those are some of the hadith that are used as the basis for determining prayer times. I think almost everything we need to determine the time limit for prayer is in the first hadith. As for information in several other hadiths as a complement. I don’t need to explain the boundaries to be as many points as usual.

But I have something important to say about the final limit of Isha prayer time. In a number of the above hadith, it is explained, that the final limit of Isya prayer is midnight. Actually, Isha prayer can be done until dawn is not yet published. But the main thing is at the beginning of time.

Now, do you understand? If you have questions, please ask!

I think that is enough for this article, about times of prayer (salat). May be useful! Amen!
