There are five daily prayers (Salah): Fajr, Zuhr, Asr, Magrib and Isha. Each prayer has a beginning and end time. A prayer can be performed at any time between those beginning and end times. If the time for a prayer has ended, that particular would still need to be perform at some other time. Missing a prayer or not reading the prayer within its designated times is sinful and prohibited.
As mentioned above, each prayer has a beginning and end time. Mostly on the prayer timetables the beginning time of a prayer would be stated. The end time of a prayer would be the beginning time of the next prayer, except for Fajr. The end time of Fajr is
20 minutes before sunrise.
If a person is praying individually (at home or in the office), he can read the prayer at any time within the designated times.
Sometimes, the beginning time of Magrib may not be specified. In this case the beginning time of Magrib is same as the Jama’at time.
If a person wanted to pray with Jama’at at the mosque (congregation or group prayers held at the Masjid), you need to know the Jama’at times. Prayer timetables would specify Jama’at times for each prayer. Praying with Jama’at (congregation) is highly recommended and full of blessings. People living near a mosque must come to the Masjid for the five daily prayers, unless they have a valid reasons such as being sick.
