Both quran and sunnah have explained when it is best to start fasting and to break your fast:
You stop eating when it is clearly obvious that it is fajir time or the end of sunset. You may continue eating after the first call to prayer, untill the muathin calls right before prayer, or the second athan. If you have food in your mounth or you ...
The fajr time will last long till the sun-rises.
It was narrated from Abdullah bin Amr (RA) that the Prophet (PBUH)
said, “The time for Zuhr is so long as Asr has not come. The time for
Asr is so long as the sun has not turned yellow. The time for Maghrib
is so long as the twilight has not disappeared. The time for Isha is
so long as half of the ...

The phrase Assalatu Khairum Minan Naum (Prayer is better than sleeping) was not part of the azan (calling for prayer) during the time of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and it has been included in Azan later (1). Furthermore, Imam ash-Shafi‘i says in his Kitab al-Umm as such:
"أكره في الأذان الصلوة خير من النوم لأن أبا محذورة لم يذكره.&...
The majority are of the view that sahoor should stop when dawn breaks. This is the view of the four imams, and the majority of fuqaha’, and was also narrated from ‘Umar and Ibn ‘Abbaas.
Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: What is the ruling on the fast of one who hears the adhaan of Fajr but continues eating and ...
Just an addition to the answer provided, it is preferred to delay suhur as much as possible and hasten to break fast as much as possible.
The Prophet (S) said: "Hasten the breaking of the fast and delay the
Suhoor". [Sahih al-Jami`]
Zaid ibn Thabit reported: "We ate Suhoor with the Messenger of Allah
and then we got up for the prayer. He was ...
All perfect praise be to Allah
First i should tell that some scholars moslty Hanafi are on the view that it is permissible to do so, and they even encourage it.
And they quote some references like:
Ibn Masood(ra) came and the Imam was in the Fajr prayer. He performed
the sunnah prayer behind a pillar and then joint the Imam. (I’la
There is no Dua named as Dua-Noor in the Hadith or Qur'an. The nearest possible match that you are talking about is the Dua in which Holy Prophet (ﷺ) has prayed to Allah asking for light in various things.
Sahih Muslim 763 j, Sunan Abi Dawud 1353, Sahih Muslim 763 a, etc.
اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ فِي قَلْبِي نُورًا وَفِي بَصَرِي نُورًا وَفِي سَمْعِي نُورًا ...
Dua of noor is a prayer that the Prophet (SAW) once read. He read it after performing the 2 sunnah rakaahs of Fajr prayer. Then, he left his house, and on the way to the mosque, he prayed the prayer. The words are:
اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ فِي قَلْبِي نُورًا وَفِي بَصَرِي نُورًا وَفِي سَمْعِي نُورًا وَفِي لِسَانِي نُورًا وَعَنْ يَمِينِي نُورًا وَعَنْ يَسَارِي ...
The verse in question is specifically about the call of the Iqama, and not the adhan.
Allah's Apostle offered the 'Isha' prayer (and then got up at the Tahajjud time) and offered eight Rakat and then offered two Rakat while sitting. He then offered two Rakat in between the Adhan and Iqama (of the Fajr prayer) and he never missed them. (Bukhari 256)
Alsalam You have to wait for 20 minutes after sunrise. You can easily find the sunrise time each day on any website.
The reason why prayer at these times is not allowed is so as to avoid any resemblance to the kuffaar who prostrate to the sun when it rises as a greeting to it and to express their joy.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) ...
Do you mean performing the missed fajr prayer? If yes, then you can perform it anytime after sunrise or during the day, no need to wait. Except that if you want to perform it along with your zohr/asr/maghrib prayer then make sure u first perform zohr/asr/maghrib and then fajr salah because the time of zohr has entered.
No Fajr and Isha are both astronomical twilight's.
Fajr - when the night breaks.
Isha - when the night starts.
Night is the darkest part of the day when sun goes below 18 deg of horizon. When sun is at this position, it does not contribute to any light in the sky, hence the night.
After astronomical twilight, while it is still pretty much dark, there is ...
I think this page sums it up pretty well, in fact giving a general consensus of most of the scholars. According to that, there are no hard and fast rules in determining the exact solar elevation angle. It entirely depends in where you live, i.e. the time when you (in New York) spot the turn over from dark to light might differ when seen from Singapore.

What you have inquired can be investigated as indeed a helpful question for the readers, since this issue can be occurred for many of Muslims, especially for the Fajr prayers (because of its time…). As you asked:
I didn't wake up for the Fajr of Friday as I was sick, then forgot to
pray it ...
Without more information we can't really tell you whether the timetable you are consulting is correct. The timings vary depending on your location and the time of the year. You can consider consulting multiple apps and websites to make sure that the timing is correct.
Assuming it is correct, you must start the fast at dawn. You can pray Fajr at anytime ...
Extracted from this link:
It is mustahabb to stay in the mosque after Fajr prayer until the sun rises, because this is what the Prophet (SAW) and his companions did, and because there is great reward in that.
Muslim (670) narrated from Jaabir ibn Samurah that when the Prophet
(SAW) had prayed Fajr, he would
sit in his prayer place until the sun had ...
من نسي صلاة أو نام عنها فكفارتها أن يصليها إذا ذكرها
He who forgets the prayer, or he slept (and it was omitted), its expiation is (only) that he should observe it when he remembers it.
This is mentioning the obvious + some speculation:
It was somewhat a collective effort. That if someone wakes they try to wake up others including the caller (mo'azzin)
They had roosters.
They went to bed early. Logically the chances of you waking up early are higher if you go to sleep sooner! After a while it becomes part of your routine. Additionally ...
@Uma has pointed at the fact that prayer times depend on location and the time of the year and that we can't answer your question without more information.
Here brief comments/answers to your partial questions and maybe some additions:
If I am going to fast(Dhul Hijja) I can eat until dawn, can I pray Fajr before the Adhan around 4?
If in the mosque the ...
In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most merciful
First of all, I should mention that on the whole, Sajdeh (prostration) can be considered from different aspects, and one of those aspects is related to “pronunciation” as you mentioned.
As a general Islamic rule of Salah (prayer), there are some conditions which can invalidate your Salah (prayer). ...
its a Hadith by Hazrat Ayesha RA that when Prophet Muhammad SAW used to finish fajr prayers and women used to walk home you could not see them properly due to the darkness. So I think its Astronomical Twilight.
I have posted the link that further transliterates the Duaa. I always wanted to know the meaning of what I am reciting, this page will help you. YOu can copy and paste or download the file.
May Allah Bless All!!!
Simply said the 2nd Rak'a for the Imam and the congregation is your first raka'a, as you joined them during the qunut and before moving to ruku'.
So once they have completed the congregation by tasleem or salam you go ahead to complete your prayer by performing your second raka'a. Now whether you will perform the qunut or not is a matter of your madhhab, ...
It is part of the shari'ah that the caller to prayer say, "as-salaatu khairun min an-naum (prayer is better than sleep) in the morning azhan.
Abu Mahzhurah asked the Prophet, upon whom be peace, to teach
him the azhan, and he told him, "If it is the morning azhan, say,
as-salaatu khairun min an-naum, as-salaatu khariun min annaum. Allahu
I think the 'Ehtiat would be to stop eating suhur before adhan(maybe some minutes) to be sure light of sun has not been arrived to our area(physical fajr)
and start breaking fast after adhan(maybe some minutes) to be sure light of sun completely fades out from our area(physical Maqrib).
