It is to be said that the deed which is dearest to Allah is to offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.
Everyone knows that all the prayers depend on the condition of the Sun and geography. Accordingly, we can have changeable opinions regarding the exact Salah times. Though different schools of Islamic thought are differing in slight details but all the schools agree that any given prayer cannot be performed before its stipulated time. Melbourne prayer times refer to times when Muslims of Melbourne perform prayers (Salah). The Melbourne, Australia prayer times guide the five daily prayers plus the Friday prayer.
The five daily prayers are mandatory (fard) and they are performed at times determined fundamentally by the location of the Sun in the sky. Consequently, Salah times fluctuate at different locations on the Earth.
The following Melbourne Prayer times are standard for Muslims in Melbourne, especially the fard prayer times.
Fajar is the Morning Prayer which is offered when it is still dark. The Fajar time begins at true dawn or sunset when the morning light appears across the full thickness of the sky and ends at sunrise or we can say when the sun is up.
According to Islamic description, the Dhuhr prayer starts after the sun passes its peak, and it lasts almost 20 min approximately before the time of Asr .
Asr prayer starts when the sunshine had not disappeared from any chamber. Otherwise, we can say that the time of Asr starts once the shadow of a thing is the similar length as the object itself. in addition, the shadow spans at Dhuhr, and it lasts till the sun goes down. Asr can be divide into two sections; the ideal time is before the sun starts to the time when the sun turn orange, whereas the time of obligation is from when the sun turns orange until the sun goes down or till the end of the day.
Islamic time says that the Maghreb prayer begins when the sun goes down and it lasts till the red light has gone the sky in the west. It can be explained as soon as the sun sets until the twilight (Shafaq) vanishes. The dusk is the light that is seen after the redness of the sun has disappeared and is spread like the whiteness of dawn from the east than from north to the south. Actually, the length of the time of Maghreb is exactly the same as the time length of Fajr for that specific day.
The Isha’a prayer time starts when the red light vanishes from the western sky, and it lasts until the increase of white light in the east which is also called Sabah Saadiq. The ideal time for Isha'a is earlier than midnight which means middle between sunset and sunrise.
