    Similar type of question was asked by Hasan Ilyas Sahab from Ghamidi Sb. Kindly refer to following video from 1:32:10 to 1:33:18

      This is not the actual question but still very helpful- the original post is about prayer times

    I wondered about the same as in which angle should we select. I was not brought up as following Hanafi or Sha’afi etc so I am very confused. Also there is about 15 min difference in prayer times specifically Fajar. Between ICNA and Islamic University Karachi there is 15 min usually. I just hope Allah accepts whatever the little offerings we do.

    Kindly watch this video on prayer timings. In this video, he says there can be small difference and it shouldnt be a problem

      But there must be one right way. Of course the prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم only prayed at one time

      From what I understoond reading online, the differences exist due to different interpretation of islamic dawn vs astronomical dawn + sun depression angle.

      So I think scholars should help us laymen here since they can tell the difference since this is quite a fundamental issue

      As ghamidi sb said differences in time is not a problem.
      As read on interned, north american relegious society is working on determining better calculation method.

      I don’t get why it’s not a problem. The specific times should have been exactly that- specific. The prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم prayed at one time not one time one day and another another day. There should only be one right way. Especially factoring in tawattur

      If you consider geographical location then it will change. Read this pdf for understanding method of calculation you will understand factors involved in calculations. Remember these models are generalized based on approximation and interpretation.

      I don’t think Ghamidi sahab agrees with the asr calculation. This is quite a fundamental issue. If Muslims have been praying five times a day every day for 14 centuries how could there ever be two opinions? Why is there subjectivity in such a fundamental issue?

      Again I am just a layman when it comes to spherical mathematics so it really is not my place to judge the above research. Islamic scholars should look at the method and let us laymen know
