Fajr & Isha Calculation
As Salaam ‘Alaykum,
Dear Brother/ Sister,
I live in Walthamstow and I am following the timetable of Masjid Abu Bakr.
I want to know what calculation method you are using and how do you determine the timetable.
Because I have been asked by many, and I want to answer them as accurate as possible.
Please explain me specially the time of Fajr, ‘Isha.
Please reply soon.
May you have a blessed Ramadhan.
Aameen & Jazakumullahu khairan for your query.
We are using “Aqrab-ul-Ayyaam” for Fajr and “Sub`ul-Layl” for Isha, as endorsed by Wifaqul Ulama (www.wifaqululama.co.uk
‘Aqrab-ul-Ayyaam’ means going by the last date in which actual Fajr occurred (which was on 21 May), as according to 18 degrees calculation, there is no ‘night’ between 22 May and 21 July. ‘Sub`ul-Layl’ means performing Isha after 1/7 of the night has passed.
Please do not hesitate to get back to me if you require further information.
