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.
