A misapplication of Aqrab al-Ayyām during persistent twilight

During persistent twilight, some institutions in the UK set the beginning of Fajr to approximately 1.20am. This is based on a misunderstanding of Fajr and misapplication of Aqrab al-Ayyām. Fajr actually occurs during this period at solar midnight (approximately 1am). The article linked below sets forward a number of arguments — from the statements of jurists, astronomy, natural order, logic, historical practice, and verses of the Qurān — that show Fajr occurs at solar midnight and why the modern application of Aqrab al-Ayyām for Fajr during persistent twilight is not correct.

Thanks. Personally I cannot find proper references for these opinions. Rather Ibn Abideen says that he has not seen *anyone* who has extended the situation of Isha to Fajr, because Fajr is simply the spreading of light which manifests. I believe Mufti Shabbir has written about the error of using 1/7th night for Fajr. Aqrab al-ayyam has the same issues. It would be very helpful if you can post any proper references from established texts. JK
