Time for Maghrib Prayer (Ahadith 534-536)


Volume 1, Book 10, Number 534:

Narrated Rafi’ bin Khadij:

We used to offer the Maghrib prayer with the Prophet and after finishing the prayer one of us would go away and could still see as far as the spots where one’s arrow might reach when shot by a bow.

So Maghrib time starts when it’s not completely dark.

Volume 1, Book 10, Number 535:

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

The Prophet used to pray the Zuhr at mid-day, and the ‘Asr at a time when the sun was still bright, the Maghrib after sunset (at its stated time) and the ‘Isha at a variable time. Whenever he saw the people assembled (for Isha’ prayer) he would pray earlier and if the people delayed, he would delay the prayer. And they or the Prophet used to offer the Fajr prayers when it was still dark.

  • Zuhr: mid-day.
  • ‘Asr: when the sun is still bright.
  • Maghrib starts after sunset.
  • ‘Isha: delayed till mid-night.
  • Fajr: when the night ends, but it’s still dark (before sunrise).
Volume 1, Book 10, Number 536:Narrated Salama:

We used to pray the Maghrib prayer with the Prophet when the sun disappeared from the horizon.

As in, after the sunset.
