Shia Islam

The time period within which the Maghrib daily prayer must be recited is the following:

  • Time begins: once the Sun has completely set beneath the horizon.
  • Time ends: at midnight. This is not necessarily at 24:00h; rather it is the time exactly between sunset and the beginning of dawn.

However, it is very important to recite the prayer as soon as the time begins.


Sunni Islam

The time period within which the Maghrib daily prayer must be recited is the following:

  • Time begins: at the beginning of the setting of the Sun.
  • Time ends: it is a consensus that the time for Maghrib salah ends when the Isha salah begins. However, there is a disgreement amongst Sunni scholars as to when that does occur. According to some, the time ends when complete darkness has arrived and the disappearance of the white twilight. Others claim that the time ends when the red has disappeared from the sky. These times can be approximated by using the sun as a measure. When the sun has descended 12 degrees below the horizon, it is the equivalent to the disappearance of the red from the sky. For approximating when complete darkness begins, some astrologist argue that it occurs when the sun has descended 15 degrees below the horizon while others use the more safe number of 18 degreesaround one and a half hours after the beginning of the setting of the Sun.

However, it is very important to recite the prayer as soon as the time begins. Isha is the nighttime prayer said by observant Muslims when the sun has completely set; it may be prayed on time until sunrise, but is preferably prayed before midnight. ...
