Asalamu 'Alaykum dear brothers and sisters, When does the time for each prayer end (Mainly Isha). For Isha, people say that it's after the half of the night or subh-sadiq (true dawn). I'm confused because I can't seem to find the time of true dawn anywhere. Can someone please explain?

  • So, for example, if Fajr is 5:00 then Isha ends at 2:30 because people say the half of the night. Thank you for your response!

Eisha prayer time begines when Maghrib (evening prayer) time has been completed and it can be prayed upto the midnight, the midpoint between shafak and dawn.In other words it can be recited when the sehri time ends. You can easily find dawn timing on Internet as well as prayers timing charts displayed in each mosque or it can also be find from islamic book centers.

  • can you give prooflinks about midnight? i had seen hadiths about 1/3 of night, but not midnight, about isha.

The prayer time for Fajr and Maghrib ends 15 minutes before the sun sets or rises because those are the two horns of the devil(during sunrise and sunset). For the other salahs (Duhr, Asr, Isha) you can pray them before the next salah comes in.
