What Time Do We Start And End Fasting In Ramadan? by maclatunji: 11:01am On Jul 03, 2013
Kazil1: In ramahdan what time do we fast & what time do we break fast? Like what time do we stop eating food in the morning & each day nafila.

Pertinent question from the gentleman. Those who know should answer.

Now, about the time to start and stop fasting. You start fasting (stop eating, drinking or anything that invalidates fast) from the moment Salatul Subhi (Fajr) starts and break fast the moment Salat Maghrib starts at Sunset. This can be difficult for the majority of us to determine.

Hence, it is great that we have technology to help us out. If you are on a smartphone, you can download salat times or similar apps that give accurate prayer times and use them to guide you.

Some Islamic organisations also print prayer times for Ramadan, you can ask around for one. That of the Islamic Education Trust (IET) is quite popular.

If all of these are not available to you, you can visit http://www.islamicfinder.org/cityPrayerNew.php?country=nigeria to get daily prayer times to guide your beginning and ending fasts.

It also depends on your location and time zone.

Time for taking sahur and iftar depends on your geographical location, Prophet Muhammed (SAW) said we must take sahur late and take our iftar early before observing Mogrib solat.

The following are some of the guidelines that can give you clue to your questions:

(1) The time for sahur extends until dawn. This is the time when Fajr prayers are called or in case if there is ŊO̶̷̊͡ mosque around, it is the time when the dark cloud in the sky are about becoming clear (some white entering into the dark cloud). BUT if the call to the fajr (dawn) prayers is announced and a man still has the cup in his hand, he should not throw it away, but can satisfy himself. The Prophet said: "If a man hears the call while the cup is still in his hand, he shall not lay it down before he is through with it."

(2)The Prophet recommended taking the sahur (night-time meal).He said : "Do not miss the sahur for it is blessed ; take even a mouthful of water. God and his angels greet those who take their sahur."

(3) It is recommended to take the iftar meal as early as possible and the sahur meal as late as possible. The Prophet said : "My people are blessed as long as they take their iftar early and their sahur late".

Omar Ibu Maymun stated that the Prophet's Companions were quick to take their iftar and slow in beginning their sahur.

(4) It is recommended that a man breaks the fast in the manner followed by the Prophet. Anas reported that the Prophet used to break the fast before he performed the sunset prayers, with a few ripe dates, or if not available, a few dry dates; or if not available, a few mouthfuls of water.

(5) At iftar offer your thanks to God in the same words used by the Prophet. Mu'adh Ibn Zahra reported that the Prophet used these words before partaking of iftar "I fasted for Your sake and broke the fast on what You gave me."

(6)Continuing the fast without a break for another day is reprehensible. Ibn Omar reported that the Prophet had forbidden continuation of the fast.

when the Prophet's companions remarked that the Prophet himself did it, he retorted, "I am not like any of you. Allah feeds me and satisfies my thirst".

Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet had said :

"Let no one continue the fast" repeating the command thrice. His companions observed that he did continue the fast whereupon the Prophet answered : "You are not like me: Allah feeds me and quenches my thirst. Do only the things you are capable of."  

May Almighty Allah continue to guide us and continue to shower us with His knowledge. Also spare our lives to witness the Ramadan in good health.

Maa Salam

Egba girl: It also depends on your location and time zone.

This is why technology is useful. You can lock coordinates to your current location if you are tech savvy.

Go to salah.com and enter the name of your city and country separated by a comma. If your phone has GPS capability you only need to go to salat time and click enter - a map and salat times will appear. You start your fast before subhi time and break at maghrib time. You can even print out the salat time for the whole month.

Suratul Baqarah
Qur'an 2:185

The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.
