  • It depends, every day it is different. I check daily to make sure I have the right time. We have 5 obligatory prayers a day the exception is for menstrating women or women who are experincing post natal bleeding it is forbidden for us to perform the obligatory prayers however we can make supplication to Allah while we are bleeding. Those who are too physically ill to pray or are mentally impaired are exempt from prayer.

    Fajr is perfomed between dawn and sunrise
    Dhur is performed after true noon and Asr
    Asr is in the afternoon
    Magrib is after sunset until dusk
    Isha is performed betwwen dusk and dawn

    Tomorrow for where I live the times are
    6am
    1:30
    6pm
    Sunset
    9pm

  • They differ slightly from day to day. You can find the prayer times for the day for any area on islamicfinder.com
