The Prayer Times & How To Determine Them

Every day, each accountable Muslim must perform five (5) specific prayers.

These five (5) prayers are called the obligatory prayers.

They are:

  • The Noon prayer (Dhuhr)
  • The Mid-afternoon prayer(^Asr)
  • The Sunset prayer (Maghrib)
  • The Nightfall prayer (^Isha')
  • The Dawn prayer (Subh) 

Each of these obligatory prayers has a specific time in which it must be performed. To perform a prayer before its time sets in or after it ends (without an excuse) is sinful.
