Prayer Times in Quran
After the testimony of Faith, Salah (prayer) is the second major pillar of Islam. So Salah is an obligation for every Muslim to perform it on time. Muslims from all across the globe perform Salah five times a day:
Like Ramadan, Hajj and Friday prayer, Salah is also one of the rituals that must be performed within the correct time frame. If a prayer is performed before the prescribed time, the Salah will not be accepted. One must repeat this prayer when the time comes. At the same time, people are disobedient when a prayer is made too late. Allah has ordered us in ayah 103 of Surah 4 to perform the prayers at least (there are some other conditions) within the right time in order to get a prayer accepted!
Calculation Method for the prayer times in Amherst
The Calculation method for the prayer times in Amherst is based on the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). This method is using 15 degrees for Angle of the sun under the horizon (Fajr) and 15 degrees Angle of the sun under the horizon (Isha). Parts of the USA, Canada, Parts of the UK use this method.
The difference between Standard and Hanafi
The only difference is in the Asr prayer. The schools of Shafii, Hanbali, and Maliki use this method and Asr time starts when the shadow of an object is equivalent to its height. In the Hanafi method the Asr prayer time starts when the shadow of an object is twice its height. We use the standard method, so If your local mosque is using the Hanafi method you need to change this at the general prayer times page.
