Fajr Prayer times is when the sky begins to lighten, some time before the sun itself appears.

Sunrise is the time at which the first part of the sun appears above the horizon.

Dhuhr Prayer times is the time when the sun appears at the highest point in the sky.

Asr Prayer times is when the time when the length of any object’s shadow equals the length (or twice the length) of the object itself plus the length of that object’s shadow at noon.

Sunset is the time at which the sun disappears below the horizon.

Maghrib prayer times is soon after the sunset.

Isha prayer times is the time at which darkness falls and there is no scattered light in the sky.  In some countries, this is usually considered 90 minutes after Maghrib.

Hadith for prayer times

The times of the prayers were mentioned by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in the hadeeth:

“The time for Zuhr is from when the sun has passed its zenith and a man’s shadow is equal in length to his height,

until the time for ‘Asr comes. The time for ‘Asr lasts until the sun turns yellow. The time for Maghrib lasts until

the twilight has faded. The time for ‘Isha’ lasts until midnight. The time for Subh (Fajr) prayer lasts from the

beginning of the pre-dawn so long as the sun has not yet started to rise. When the sun starts to rise then stop

praying, for it rises between the two horns of the Shaytaan.” (Narrated by Muslim, 612). (islam-qa.com)

Although there is some speculation that various methods exist for calculation of prayer times, the primary difference is only in the calculation of Asr prayers. In some methods such as the ones proposed by Imam Abu Hanifa, the Asr time starts when the shadow is twice the size of the object, whereas in others such as Hanbali, Shafie, and Mailiki religious thoughts, the Asr prayer times starts when the shadow is equivalent the size of the object.
