My question is that there is a lot of confusion in prayer times. People tell that the time for one prayer will end when sun reaches some position. It is not possible for me to detect the location of sun. Can you please specify the timings that how long zohur,asr,maghrib,isha lasts. I am located in Pakistan.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We advise that you consult your local Masjids for the timings.

The times of Salah are:

Fajr is from Subah Sadiq (early dawn) up to a little before sunrise.

Zuhur is from after Zawal (past noon) up to the time that the shadow of any object becomes twice the length of the object plus the original shadow that was there at Midday (Zawal).

Asr time begins when Zuhur time finishes and ends at a little before sunset. To delay the Asr Salah until the colour of the sun has turned pale (yellow) is Makruh.

Maghrib is from sunset up to the time the redness fades on the horizon.

Isha time begins after the redness on the horizon disappears (about an hour after sunset) and lasts up to a little before Subah Sadiq (dawn).

واول وقت الفجر
اذاطلع الفجرالثاني وهوالبياض المعترض في الأفق مالم تطلع الشمس أي قبيل طلوعها
واول وقت الظهر
اذازالت الشمس واخروقتها عند أبي حنيفة رحمه الله اذاصارظل كل شيء مثليه سوي فيء الزوال
واول وقت العصر اذاخرج وقت الظهر علي القولين مالم تغرب الشمس أي قبيل غروبها
واول وقت المغرب اذا غربت الشمس مالم يغب الشفق وهوالبياض الذي يري في الأفق بعد الحمرة عند ابي حنيفة وقال ابويوسف ومحمد هوالحمرة
واول وقت العشاء اذاغاب الشفق مالم يطلع الفجر الثاني أي قبيل طلوعه
